    If she doesn't see by now the glaring issue with her training and the people surrounding her, it's not going to happen.

    If there is a miracle, if she has a come to Jesus moment and she exits her comfort zone and finds a legitimate way to train, she will come back better than she was. She is young enough with a nasty foundation, it can still be built on. But she has long since outgrown her environment.

    Ronda will never be able to touch gold as long as Nunes is champ. No matter what she does and who she trains with. She just isn't that good. Deal with it.

    She should train at Blackzillians where they'll punch her in the face and force her to improve her striking defense and composure lol.

    Semi-joking but she could definitely use legit hard sparring.

    Looking at it objectively, she really can't. She's mentally broken, it's damn near impossible to fix that. When you look at the fighters that have turned it around, they were never broken mentally like Ronda has been.

    I think PHYSICALLY she still has what it takes to improve, but MENTALLY? I very much doubt it. Besides, she's already made hella money so she doesn't need to fight again.

    During her judo days, she overcame adversity multiple times, fought through broken/dislocated limbs and now... Can't take a punch. So it's not like she hasn't shown heart in the past, but she can't take a punch for some reason. I dont know...this whole issue with her striking might be mental.

    Her head's not in it, her heart's not in it, and she's just really not all that good. Her skillset was always limited to a judo hip toss, arm bar, and shitty striking. She won by being the best of the worst. She made a bunch of money and now it's time to walk away.

    Rousey has an inability to take a solid punch. Yea she'll take shots from Tate and Correira all day every day, but its completely different when youre taking punches from Holly and Nunes

    Why would she even want to fight anymore? She has millions of dollars. Head trauma is real and Ronda has gotta a lot of it in her last two fights.

    Be a judo coach or something for fun?

    Nobody can eat those punches. The key is not get hit with punches like that, at least not taking the full brunt of them. Her problem is her completely lack of defensive footwork and head movement. It's not that she doesn't have those things, but it seems as if she doesn't even understand those concepts, let alone train them hard. A Complete crime on the part of her supposed boxing coach.
    ? Lmao
    On a serious note, stipe is probably the best heavyweight we've ever seen in MMA and his résumé will prove as much in about two more fights. If he gets two more defenses and breaks the record, especially if he avenges the JDS loss, he's undeniably the heavyweight goat.

    Its very possible that you're all right. This next year or so will tell the story. At this point it seems like she may never turn it around, but you can never say never. Especially with a person who borders on insanity with the way her mind works. She's definitely on the extreme end of the spectrum at all times, for better or worse. Could end up working in her favor like it used to.

    Every decent coach abandoned her by now for some reason. She would never get accepted into a reputable camp, plus many of them aren't an option because other women in her division train there.

    I'd be very very concerned for her welfare right now if I were her family.
