    How can she surpass GSP, Fedor, Anderson...?

    (Aldo and Jones not considered here but you get the point)

    So far she has dominated her best competition (i.e. GSP), has been undefeated for long period of time (i.e. Fedor) and is miles above in a particular skillset that allows her to finish her opponents as she pleases and making them look mediocre (i.e. Anderson).

    Also leading the way in her brand of the sport (i.e. Royce). Plus almost a household name (i.e. Liddell/Couture/Griffin/Rampage?)

    On top of that:

    - Champ of two organisations
    - Olympic medalist (not directly MMA related but basically was elite in an entirely different sporting competition)
    - Has convincingly finished all opponents so far

    If Ronda keeps this going she will definitely be in the running for GOAT.

    If you suggest Ronda should fight men, i.e. animals with greater bone density, it is equivalent to saying that men should fight the next "gender" up bone-density wise: perhaps a silverback. Irrefutable logic.


    Thoughts?

    She can't be GOAT. A GOAT path doesn't include beating up little girls.

    She'll never be the goat, because she will never face the level of competition that the guys face. Woman MMA is just too small. If she'd beat Dillashaw, she would be the goat though.

    Simply put: she can't. Not for a long long time at least.
    There's just not enough talent in her division to justify her being to GOAT no matter how many title defences she racks up. WMMA is just to young and thin in general. She will be remembered as a pioneer though.

    Why do people call her a gold medalist? The gold medalist that year was Ueno who defended her gold medal from 2004 - giving her 2 gold medals to ronda's 1 bronze.

    WMMA has a very poor level of competition.

    To be the goat, u need to beat the champ from the upper class.

    Dillashaw --> Aldo
    Aldo --> Pettis
    Pettis --> Gsp
    Gsp --> Silva.
    Silva-->Jon jones
    Jon jones --> Cain
    Ronda --> Cyborg.
