    Not stopping for pics or anything for the media...




    you know, it wouldn't bother me much, if the UFC wouldn't have called out Conor's fight at UFC 200 just for not doing media...

    I don't like either fighters, but I do think that what applies to one has to apply to others.
    this is becoming ridiculous how UFC treats fighters differently.

    anyone disagree?

    Note: before you say "they bring more money", I do understand that point. but that's why they get paid more.
    The promotion should be neutral, and not play favorites like that!

    She doesn't look well, but she also looks hotter than normal IMO...

    I think something may be wrong with me :/

    As far as not doing MMA Media, comparing it to Conor at 200 isn't a good 1 to 1 comparison. Ronda did the equivalent of take a day off work, Conor did a no-call no-show.

    She worked it out in advance of signing the fight contract. Conor was contractually obligated to attend and just refused.

    The only problem with her doing no (close to no) media is the precedent it sets. But that's the UFC's problem.

    Bare in mind that for the few years before the Holm fight, Ronda did more media than anyone. If the UFC felt it was worth it to let her just focus on what she says she wanted to focus on, that's their call.

    I also find it funny that after years of 'she's being shoved down our throats' her critics now complain they're not seeing/hearing enough of her.

    When you are a megastar like Rousey that earlier has put in tons of media work then you can allow to do the no media gimmick later on! But alright keep on whining lol...

    so? its working for her... she isnt doing any promoting and that in itself is getting talked about and doing the promoting for her... sort of how like there is 25 threads on her not doing media on sherdog... Granted people on SHerdog are obsessed with her and talk about her non stop and would no matter what she did... because they "dont like her" but still its working for her...

    Also dont they do a fake weigh in later tonight for the media? or do they not do that anymore?

    What a difference from the overly confident mega bitch of a few years ago. Thank you Holly.

    Now that so many are against Rousey, I'm actually rooting for her. And then I'll root against her once another contender steps in.
