    "Even if she carried her same brilliance into a clinch with stronger individuals—she only has one way of getting there, running straight forwards and eating blows."

    Interesting piece here. This is a perfect balance, give Ronda her due for being ahead of the game, but keep it realistic and keep her out of the man vs woman discussions.

    That's a good point -

    Most fans of other sports (GOLF included) aren't making dumb "what-if" scenarios comparing men and women. Rousey's appeal to a wide, non-hardcore audience is probably partly to blame for why those comparisons pop-up; some idiot will see her fight for the first time, having little prior MMA knowledge, and think she could beat the men. (How does that make you feel, boys??)

    What about the REVOLUTIONARY aspect of Ronda Rousey? If Canner McMario has one, I'm sure Jack Slack can pull one out of his ass for Ronda.

    Perfectly stated to appease even Rousey's online beta orbiters. Unless they've taken complete leave of their senses.

    Mendes had two weeks to get ready. The Irishman had 6 months. It makes a difference.

    I don't understand how people who have never actually implemented any of the techniques they claim to be an expert on in actual competition have any credibility.

    I agree with him completely. One of the few people who hasn't bought the UFC hype.

    I was referring to the hype that the UFC has built around Ronda. Conor may be over-hyped but he still is a good fighter.

    Top women golfers occasionally enter the men's PGA tournaments and struggle to make the Top 100.

    There are a lot of sports where women are able to safely play against men or be measured objectively against them (golf, tennis, track & field, games like chess, basketball, etc etc) and they sometimes do, and they always are nowhere near the top of the men's results. The 2012 gold medal winning 100m time for women (10.75) wouldn't have qualified for the Top 8 at the men's Olympics 50 years ago (10.5 at men's 1964 Summer Olympics). The Williams sisters couldn't beat the 203rd ranked male player.

    Even when you take out physical strength, competitive focus and calculating ability and number of participants still make a huge difference. The top female chess player in the world is ranked #70 in the overall rankings.

    Women can't compete with men. Put Ronda in there with a Top 50 male fighter and you're going to get her seriously hurt.

    Who is Jack Slack? How many titles has he won? How many world champions has he trained?

    Rousey fans making these retarded "what-if" scenarios are not fans of this or any sport.

    Well until Mike Winkeljohn, André Pederneiras, Duane Ludwig, or Rafael Cordeiro start posting on here we'll just have to make do with the striking analysts willing to give it up for free like Slack and Ruesbech.

    Who cares who he has trained? You're not looking to sign up with him as your trainer in preparation for your run at the WBC World title; you're reading free shit on the internet.

    Ronda beats Jackoff slackoff in 2 minutes and forces him to wear an apron and make her a turkey pot pie.

    Good. At least there is now one woman in the WBW division with skills that are actually well rounded.

    Lol! Put her in against Dodson. When he lands one of those shots that sounds like Liddell vs Metzger and looks like Hendricks vs Fitch, the crowd will gasp in horror and stare in disbelief as to how this ever came about.

    Men have used footwork to ruin the game plan of grapplers far superior to Ronda long before she even entered the sport. That line was basically saying: "I don't know shit about MMA".

    Before the mendes fight, much of sherdog was saying how mendes would expose conor

    Conor fought against arguably the worst match up for him and still won

    Now people are saying edgar is the one to beat him

    Conor may have used his mouth to get many opportunities, but he is a top tier fighter. Not sure if he would beat edgar or aldo, but he has shown a great fight iq and talent.

    Its funny how blindly sherdog can hate or nuthug fighters
     
  36. Is Slack wrong? Well before Rousey lost brutally to Holm, countless Sherdoggers were pointing out that Rousey just charges forward and powers through her opponents strikes to get the clinch and then take the fight to the ground and someone who can move and strike will be able to beat Rousey.

    That is why so many people wanted to see Rousey fight Cyborg. I would love to see Rousey trying to charge through Cyborg's punches.

    Not that anyone is calling for anything as ridiculous as Dodson/Derousey, but if that fight did happen it would be worse than just shocking the audience. MMA would most likely be banned from the US if this fight was ever held.

    No shit, she looked like Babalu/Chuck 2 in most of her fights. She ran at opponents like Frankenstein with her arms out.

    Bill Belichick is considered the best NFL coach and has never played any main position in collegiate or professional leagues.

    It doesn't always matter.

    Or you can move your head and slip punches right into the clinch which happens in every fight, or make Holly be the aggressor and work into it from there.
