From 2011 to 2014 I'd say?
When 135 was all cans and favorable match ups in style
She could realistically still be in it, assuming she went to a new camp and focused on fighting.
The olympics. That's about the coolest thing she will ever do. Not many people walking around with an Olympic medal.
wouldnt be a good Rousey thread without this
Alot more people walking around with olympic gold than have won UFC gold
Its impossible to say. She lost a fight,doesnt mean she is no longer in her prime. Have to wait and see.
Wow. You really typed that. It seems like your defending the rowdy one,which is cool...but The olympics has been around much longer,and olympic judo is highly competitive. Thats why Rousey was annihlating all her opponents cos they never trained in such enviornments...Except Sara Mcmann and Rousey trounced her too. I say both winning the belt and the medal is awesome...no reason to clown her for either as some want to do here.
She'd be in her prime today if she knew how to take a loss.
The constant hate for R3 makes me appreciate Mayweather. This would have been him + 1000 if he lost.
She got KTFO in her prime
What made her so good at winning is a double edged sword unfortunatley. I just wonder if she can see that,or do anything about it.
That's an intriguing point, but can you elaborate?
Her prime was when she was fighting soccer moms, secretaries and librarians. Now that more legit martial artists are joining the UFC, her weaknesses are being exploited.
Rhadi Ferguson,a olympic judoka who has fought at LHW in mma had a roll with Rousey years before she competed in mma,and he of course beat her. He said she was angry and took it very hard,and he asked why,and she said that she felt like she should have won. She has an intense nearly delusional belief in herself,and there is probably no one like that in WMMA with her level of skills. So she goes out there and eats these women up,who have never competed at a level that Ronda is used to,and havent been trained,basically since birth to be an olympic medalist. That supreme confidence and ability put together,there was just no answer to that when she was on top,and the media picked up on this so they kept asking her if she could beat males,cain velasquez,mayweather,God? and she said what she really felt,and the whole thing got super overblown. When she got totally outclassed and embarassed by Holm,it must have been a huge blow to her psyche,and she may never recover from it. Im sure she couldnt handle losing like that,and of course most of the media that hyped her up turned on her. So that savage dominant personality that allows her to walk through most of the fighters she faced,is also kind of her worst enemy,because the fall is so much worse because of it.
we have to wait to see her next fight.
Miesha Tate beat Holly Holm and won the title. Ronda beat her twice. There are like two or three new players tops at the elite level since then,and they still have alot to prove.
