    Eddie got destroyed but is still a somewhat competetent fighter. No shame in getting rekt by the GOAT.

    Ronda is finished.

    Ronda.

    Thats tough to say

    Imma go with Edwards on this. The guy got his man card revoked from that fight

    We all knew Ronda retired long ago after losing to Holly. Tonight just confirmed it

    Ronda really needed that win badly for a future movie career. Eddie was better off getting paid more and losing then having to fight 10-20 times to make the same money.

    Ronda easy. She not only lost the fight, but also her identity. If she won, then they could have built her back up as an invincible badass. She's exposed now.

    <bball1>Eddie atleast landed a leg kick at the beginning, and also showed amazing recovery. How is this even a question?

    Eddie doesn't have to avoid media for his next fight, because the media doesn't give a shit about him. He was a "15 minutes of fame" type guy, as far as main stream media was concerned. He can have a rematch with Pettis or Dos Anjos, he could fight Joe Lauzon or Diego Sanchez, it won't matter. If Ronda signs on to fight a champion, she will be swamped with media, if she signs on to fight a gatekeeper, she will be swamped with media. She will be under way more scrutiny no matter what, because she was 100x more famous.

    Doesn't really matter. However, Alvarez was the one who was supposed to be a fighter's fighter, and nothing else in the public forum. Then he let somebody like McGregor make him look like a joke who may have thrown the fight (even HE thought it appeared that way).

    Eddie lasted to the second round. Ronda didn't last 60 fucking seconds.
