    Not just doing pure boxing these days. Still sticking with her judo roots too.

    Is there even actually anyone in her division who legitimately stands a chance against her? that last one was embarrassingly brutal, not really a fan of her but geeze she's been holdin that belt a pretty minute.

    For sure, when Cyborg signed with the UFC Ronda asked to be released so she could go fight somewhere else and never have to fight her, totally ducked Cyborg. Oh wait, it was the other way around.

    "still training judo"

    though if you want to play that game, ronda whilst on a winning streak dropped divisions when the time came to match up with cyborg so neither is blameless

    Coker sent her to 135, with the plan of her getting the belt and setting up a superfight. Ronda won, Cyborg won, stage was set. Cyborg then popped for steroids, because she needs to cheat to beat up much smaller 125lb girls. Cyborg swore that she was fighting Ronda at 145 that Summer if they reduced her suspension, the AC did not do so, and the fight was cancelled.

    The only time Ronda was ever offered Cyborg, every piece of evidence points to her accepting the fight. Cyborg has publicly refused 2 fights with Ronda, at 140, and at 135.

    Ronda's Judo is simply amazing.

    What you mean to say is Ronda dropped a division to fight for the title.
    Go on a diet and win the bantamweight title or fight a known steroid abuser.
    Hmmmm...that sounds like an awful tough decision.

    Sure mabye Ronda with only 4 pro fights didn't want anything to do with Cyroid at the time. But when she was 7/8-0 it was definately Cyborg who didn't want anything to do with RR.

    RR has never missed weight. So dropping down to BW was clearly a good idea.

    And?

    While Tate was busy smelling nice for her fight, Ronda was busy preparing to beat her ass.

    Haha, loved that zoom out in the end, revealing her tiny photo on the poster right under the huge Weidman's face.

    She's so far ahead of everyone else in her division it's kind of ridiculous.

    Unless someone new comes out of the woodwork, I don't see Ronda losing for a long, long time.

    She could potentially retire with the belt. It's almost a shame that we may never see her truly meet her match. Time will tell, I guess.

    I disagree. Its a pleasure to see such a master put her craft to work.

    Just goes to show that specialist still have a place.

    That's not a maybe....She wanted to delay the fight as long as she could...Cause she knew she would only improve as an MMA FIghter and wanted to fight Cyborg, once she had started to peak.

    This video from the Rogan Podcast, pretty much shows her saying that she wants to wait a while to fight cyborg (for the record, I would root for Rousey....but its hella disappointing that Dana hasn't been able to make the fight). I wish they could agree to a 140 catch-weight but it seems that its wishful thinking, that this will happen.

    Ronda has said that she has not trained in just Judo since pretty much entering mma. Even in this vid she isn't really training just judo she's working on putting everything together
