    They should have used the opportunity and asked him "no, really. What do you think of Ronda's boxing skills?"

    When they questioned him about the debt:

    Trustee: And what was this debt used for?


    Tarverdyan: Well, you know, when I started, I opened up a gym and I thought I could be successful on brand. I got a good location and then, you know, just couldn't, too much overhead. And I thought I could, you know, open up a gym but then wanted to work with fighters. And working with fighters, you're not going to be running a gym, you know, at that level instead of just for the general public because I just want to have great fighters and fighters don't make any money. So, you know, it never worked. It just went everything went down the drain.

    Probably too much boxing knowledge in that video. It would overwhelm me if I watched it.

    I hope they bring in Ronda's mom as a character witness.

    "within the six figure mark" gives him almost a million dollar range of ambiguity. That could be $100,000 or $999,999.

    It means almost nothing except that he claims to have made less than a mil. Which prob isn't true anyway...

    I ain't watching this thing. I get the feeling it would be like reading OJ's civil trial testimony, though ( All lies ). I'm not sure that's fair. Ed may not actually lie. But, I get the feeling the guy may not even know the truth. He seems completely clueless.

    Holly Holm can testify that Edmond was never paid to train Ronda...
