    People know my threads and know I was saying Amanda would win easily, because their was no doubt in my mind she would not change her normal pressure game plan. She even tried grabbing for a throw Amanda shrugged that shit off...

    When Holly knocked out Ronda I was very happy to see her humbled. BUT I am human and I do feel for Ronda now the second time around. My opinion, Edmund...ruined this girl. Ronda trusted his training and guidance.

    If Ronda ditched Edmund like her mother requested....and in scenario ...what IF Rousey went to AKA to train with the likes of Rockhold, Cormier, Cain, Khabib....World class wrestlers and grapplers for the past 13 months off..Would the fight had been different?

    Discuss/opinion?

    Bad knees dude.

    She should've trained at a gym where they would actually push her and force her to improve her standing defense, she looked like she doesn't even do hard sparring.

    We'd see an injured Ronda.

    And she couldn't train with Cain or Cormier. Both could lift and toss her with one arm and the other broken. Cain could take her down from his hospital bed.

    It would be a different fight but she would never be a first class striker starting that late in her career. She also has the knee problem which problem makes shoot takedowns tough and also limits level changes. Still, they would have worked out a strategy to close distance and get into clinches and get it to the ground. I see a tough fight with Nunes gassing in the third round and Ronda getting a sub in Round 4. But she still could have gotten caught early.

    If she grew up and got over the terrible attitude she has, then she might be different. I don't think changing camps would have helped her mental weaknesses which means she would not have been much different.

    I just dont feel you can teach a judoka world class striking to fight girls of Holly and Amanda's caliber in 2-3 years. It takes decade some times to get there. I agree with you though anyone but Edmund would have beeen better honestly. He ruined her run by increasing stand up and not concentrating on what MADE her. The Betche KO made her feel like a Mike Tyson but that wasnt a top 5 striker.

    I wouldn't expect her to beat Holly and Amanda standing but better standup defense to survive long enough to get to the ground would help.

    It seems like she improved only her striking offense, never defense because she was never pushed to.

    If she trained at AKA Cain would be out injured even more "under the right circumstances"

    Ronda would finally get 200 reps on the leg extension machine- with a FULL STACK.

    lol im sure they would make adjustments....I was more less just making an example of going somewhere where she can learn a double leg.....shit call Tito or Randy Couture. Theyd have fought with injuries. IF in fact her knees are that bad, she should be done. I had no idea her knees were that bad.
