    The most interesting part to me was how she would be doing Judo and be overweight and they would find her secret chocolate bars. He said she couldn't take it seriously and would have probably won a gold medal if she had.

    To contrast that she was dropping weight on TUF just to show one of the contestants how fast she could do it and when she fights now she is always the proper weight on fight day.

    Those struggles with chocolate bars may have helped her be who she is now, which is to say, very disciplined.

    This guy is an asshole.

    He wanted to parade her around at 16 in a bikini when she wasn't a star but doesn't understand why she does it now as an adult and celebrity.

    So if someone doesn't treat Ronda like she craps gold he is automatically a hateful bitter man? You white knights really astound me how you can keep twisting stuff around to fit your world, which revolves around Ronda.

    Ronda to be a sex symbol because at that time it wouldn't pay . But today, I guess money talks.


    Typical.

    IIRC there's some well documented bad blood between ronda and the Pedro's. I think they felt jilted when she ditched judo for MMA

    That's the quote that stands out to me. Are fighters getting paid enough to fight in the UFC rather than do something else? Especially with WMMA fighters only getting a couple of fights per year. These women could be working full time at Wal-Mart and make more than $8k/fight and $1500 they get from Reebok. Talent folllows the money.

    Fuck you.

    He wasn't opposed to his dad's asinine suggestion.

    I stand by my post.
