    EDIT: Since Shertards go by the headlines mostly and respond to who knows what so heres an easy for the dummies: THEY STOPPED USING WHAT THEY WERE GOOD AT, WHAT MADE THEM DOMINATE TO BECOME STRIKERS.......FAILED

    We all remember how dominate Diego Sanchez was on the ground? He was domination. He dominated Nick Diaz on the ground. Basically any fighter that he got on top of was doomed. Then one day decides that he wants to strike, wants to abandon the thing that brought him to the top and he gets beat on the feet by all the elite strikers. Sure his chin was granite and had great heart but imagine he just stayed with perfecting his ground and pound style?

    Ronda, cant blame her here...She was dominate until her coach filled her head with striking dreams. Made her believe she could knock out girls. So she knocks out Betche...a fighter who had mediocre stand up and wasnt even rank top 5. She abandoned what brought her to the dance and piad for it now not once but twice. Instead of staying with Edmond who I do blame training her striking,...How about getting a great wrestling coach to train her how to do some great takedowns? She doesnt know any wrestling. So that is all I have to say.

    Ronda COULD have been champ again this morning if she learned a double leg, or a single leg in 13 months. Amanda Nunes came forward as expected and would have been taken down easily. Thats my opinion.

    lol. never seen diego get thrashed so bad with zero response. and ronda did try to take nunes down. nunes shrugged it off. so, you are saying that if ronda was an entirely different person, with different skills, she could have won. ok...

    Nunes-Ronda was basically the same fight as Lauzon-Diego.

    Diego stabbed Dan Quinn in the back.
    Ronda seems devoted to great people like Edmond.
    They are nothing alike
