    She's too small to credibly fight at 145. I mean she can beat a lot of 145ers, but it would still look weird unless she bulked up a lot and she already had trouble bulking to be a medium sized BW.

    ya totally. or, after 10 years of fighting she's tired, got a belt (and with it a huge paycheck) and the thought of going back to fight for small paychecks again with a sore 30-something body just sound tedious.

    but shit, conspiracy theories are way more fun than simple reason. i miss Art Bell.

    Intentionally allowing her face to get rearranged by Nunes, so she could retire was then a brilliant move?
     
  7. This is the best application of Occam's razor I have ever seen; The simplest explanations tend to be better ones. It is clearly a conspiracy.

    I don't buy it.

    I think Rousey is scared to death of Holm and wants no part of her.

    I also think she's doing this one fight so she can retire with the belt and not be criticized for quitting.

    I can't stand the belts to be honest, Miesha won 1 fight and now she's a completely different person psychologically and it explains her 2 defeats afterwards? Fuck off Miesha, you got smashed because your massive tits have affected your mobility and changed your stance to the point where you're just a punching bag with some grappling credentials.

    she's not as shot as Gray Maynard, but she certainly reacts badly to being hit these days too. She was so terrified of Pennington finishing her too she refused to take a risk going for the finish.

    That's your invention and it's a decidedly dumb one.

    I'm sure that Miesha is dying to do a favor for her worst enemy.

    Gu-greed with the last part, it was particularly well thought out compared to the rest. Nice!

    You calling Dana and the UFC her worst enemy? I don't agree at all. Doesn't add up.

    wow. you need to breathe.

    she was never the best of her era. maybe without RR, Cyborg and hell even Carano she could have been, but she's 2nd or 4th best of her era. in this sport 2nd best is easily forgotten or dismissed, sadly, because being 2nd or 3rd or 4th best in the world should be considered fucking amazing.

    that being said, her era was 5 to 10 years ago. now she'll probably get beat by many up and comers. that's just the nature of the 'sport is evolving' beast. and maybe she knows it, eh? she just lost 2 in a row, and lost 3 rounds to 1 against Holm before going all in (good for her i say).

    but really, does she - or any vet fighter - deserve what you just wrote there? remember, just because you are capable of clicking a big blue "e" on your computer (and maybe not capable of much more) doesn't mean you have to be a dick anonymously to fighters on forums. fighter bashing used to be more heavily regulated; i wish it still was.

    You can argue Cyborg but Carano really has no resume to be in the discussion for even 3rd best. 7-1 with best win being Kedzie or Evinger is impressive?

    Coenen/Kaufman/Davis all have better resumes than Carano, Zingano/McMann/Nunes too depending on what generation you count them (I wouldn't say they are a separate generation from Miesha).
