    He's AFAID. I have a hard time taking Edmond seriously, all he has is Rousey. Rousey is a great fighter for WMMA, but her technical abilities would not stand in very modest men's MMA competition.

    I know Ronda has a ton of defenders to come to the rescue, but dude sounds afraid.

    I think Rousey needs Cyborg more than Cyborg needs her. Cyborg already had her legacy fight against Gina, she can crush tomatoes for the rest of her career if she wants to. Rousey has not had "that" fight.

    Yikes,
    This has got to be Edmonds greatest attempt to launch himself out of the friend zone.

    rather see Holm fight than tate

    even though I think Tate would do better than Holm (even in her 3rd crack)

    He's an average coach at best but Cyborg needs to come to 135. You want the champ you come get the champ, no exceptions.

    Funny how they were willing to fight Carano at 145lbs or even catchweight. What a joke.

    100% scurred of Cyborg....lol.

    The funny hing is that he shouldn't be. yes it would be the first time Rhonda's ever been in a real fight, but she'd probably be a 65/35 or 70/30 logical favorite.

    I guess that unless Rhonda is a 95/5 favorite Eddy don't want none.

    And yet she'll probably run up and go for a clinch/throw the second the round starts if the fight ever happens.

    This is the "coach" that immediately goes to the fighter's family members to talk shit after they get KOed :icon_lol:

    Imagine the hate greg jackson would get if he was the one in this video.

    I dont agree that he is afraid. I think he may get a little carried away talking about his fighter but seriously, what else is he suppose to say?

    Although Ronda's standup is technically beginner level, what she does have is power from those masculine shoulders her straight right/left will hurt most in her division if they land clean.

    I disagree 100%.

    99% of the population has no clue who Cyborg is and those casual fans that do only know the name because of Rousey. We all know who she is because we are big enough fans of MMA to post on a forum about it.

    Cyborg needs Rousey much more than Rousey needs her. 90% of the population views Tate as her biggest rival and do not even realize that Cyborg exists.

    Do you know how big Cyborg is? If they fought at 145 Ronda would likely weight (like he said in this interview) about 148 during the fight. Cyborg would probably be at least 165. That is a huge size difference in an MMA fight. At least if they fight at 135 the weight difference likely wouldn't be more than 5-10 pounds during the fight.

    Yeah, that would just be awful. I rather watch her beat all these 135ers in 10 seconds.

    Ronda makes millions per fight, with or without Cyborg.

    Cyborg makes a few thousand, unless she fights Ronda.

    Who needs whom more is as clear cut as that.

    This is the prize fighting business.
