    Ronda cearly has some sort of mental illness/anxiety disorder. She is like a robot when she's in the cage. You don't notice this when she is able to grab her opponents and throw them to the ground. But when she has to spend any period of time trying to strike and stand face to face with her opponent it kicks in and she literally doesn't fully control her body at the point. Her hands are all over the place, she doesn't realize she's rushing in with her chin in the air and that she can get punched because she's actually in the cage fighting.

    It's called a gameplan, and she did not have one. Part of his job is to recognize that she has a glaring striking deficiency, and to work around it. She actually looked like she wanted to box with Nunes and Holm. I do not believe she even attempted a takedown against Nunes, when it really should have been immediate.

    A trainer's entire job is to fix that.

    Well, his coach's job is to make a gameplan and make her improve her striking, Edmond did none.

    tried to grab her in the clinch twice I believe and got just shrugged off. Nunes said in the interview with Bisping and Florian and co. that it was very easy for her to resist the hip toss due to hours and hours of training dedicated to negating it.

    Makes sense. Ronda is very good at what she does- great grappler but if you nullify that element, what does she have going for her. Power? Yeah to an extent but against much more talented strikers that is not enough.

    Edmond is horrible, absolutely horrible. She's also mentally broken.

    Stop it dude... it's obvious that Edmond is a hack. Both her losses are entirely on him.

    If Dana really wanted to save his cash cow he should have intervened much sooner (right after her loss to Holm to be exact). Remember when Amir Khan was flatlined by a no name Colombian? Guess what was the first thing that happened? His promoter sacked his then trainer and hired him a new one.
