    It's not just that her chin is bad but she can't handle being punched in the face. She isn't used to it and doesn't like it. Luckily in most her fights she's been able to toss her opponents to the ground and finish them.

    Her striking defense is the problem, not an inability to take a punch.

    She has a good chin.

    Her striking defense on the other hand.........

    She took quite a few against Holm.

    Her problem is that she believed she could box. Even after losing to Holm she thought she fought badly by her own standards. In truth she fought how she always does.

    She was better when she just went straight for the takedown.

    Exactly. She was just standing there in front of Amanda letting her tee off on her. No head movement, no footwork, no blocking, no nothing. This is two fights in a row where Ronda looked like a week one beginner.

    Holly doesn't have a lot of power in her hands.

    She just tried to clinch while she ate shots. Rather than blocking she went for the clinch and I think that was her main downfall.

    Edmund convinced her she could strike, and here we are now

    She gets dazed by anything that comes anywhere near her chin, but yes I agree that her defense is terrible.

    I disagree, in the second Tate fight she took a few good shots and still won and in the Holly fight she took a few good shots as well and kept moving forward. Her chin definitely isn't great though and she does get stunned pretty easily.

    Ronda has a chin man. The Holm fight she ate a whole bunch and got KO'd in the 2nd round from a nice headkick. She has no striking defense just comes straight forward like a bull. Once she couldn't clinch she reverted back to her horrible striking and got KO'd.
