She doesn't have to worry about the grappling so why no kicks?
think she might add some leg kicks to her arsenal for Holm
He refuses to allow me to kick. Throwing kicks isn’t part of the way I fight. But I would occasionally throw a kick in practice out of frustration or rage.
"Don’t do that," Edmond said one day. "When you kick, I know it means you’re angry."
He was right.
"You’re doing great," Edmond said. "Just keep it up."
"Oh, and Ronda," he said, as he picked up the stool to exit the cage. "Don’t throw any kicks."
I tossed her to the ground at the beginning of the round, and she lay on her back like an overturned turtle, kicking her legs in the air in an attempt to keep me away. Oh you wanna kick? I thought. Fuck you, bitch. I threw the last kick of my entire MMA career right back at her.
the great edmond doesnt teach how to kick apparently
holy shit the post above mine
its true then, and in a pathetic way even
she doesn't know how
also i feel like she would have a lot of trouble off her back with a good grappler and she gave up her back to Carmouche in like a second so she does have to worry about grappling
Hard to showcase all your skills in less than a minute
He alters his training per fighter. Ronda needs more time before she should be throwing kicks.
So you're pinning your hopes on one exchange in Rousey's career? Yeah, Carmouche got her back (it was after more than a second of grappling, I realize you're trying to sound clever, but at least stick to the facts junior) and Rousey was in trouble. Once. In her first fight in the UFC. Nerves might have played a small role. Since then, she's looked great on her feet, on the ground, wherever she wants the fight to happen. But yeah, keep the hate alive...
She hasn't needed them up until this point
When you can throw people on their heads/backs from clinch you don't need kicks.
Seriously, people need to be aware of top class Judo. You can throw people from ANYWHERE if you're within striking distance. She's Olympic level against women who have barely any Judo experience. It's really quite unfair but i don't care.
Remember when Karo would throw fools?
Ronda has perfectly adapted her Judo for MMA and doesn't waste any time using it.
Throw, mount, sub, over.
Ronda wants the clinch, the takedown and the armbar. That's why she just goes zero distance immediately, kicking makes no sense in the gameplan.
Ronda would get tapped out by a high level worlds champ or adcc grappler too bad none of them have crossed over into mma other than gadelha, who'd rather cut a ton of weight than fight at 135
Why trow kicks? When u got power in the right hand, good clinch game, elite judo and the best armbar in MMA. Ronda is a pressure fighter and her pressure works great cause the clinch is easier to achieve after some punches and throwing kicks more at distance fighting. Rondas ability to set a fast pace is better and it works for her, it makes her opponent react and be in defensive mode that leaves openings. Ronda is also able to process a fast paced fight from her Judo day's rather than having a feeling out process and let her opponents get comfortable.
Weidman is also a pressure fighter he uses jabs and punches to close distance. He is confident in his grappling and uses most punches and few kicks, point being it works for him and his style
She threw a couple of kicks in the 2nd Tate fight
Wat he said⬆⬆
I wonder the same thing.
I'd love her if she was a great kicker.
It would also make her harder to predict.
Not that she needs it against her competition.
Wasn't Talita Noguera an elite BJJ grappler? Wonder wats her walk around weight and why she didn't try to fight at 135. She did however decide to fight at Bellator
She barely throws a punch properly
Any opportunity to kick is also an opportunity to go for the takedown.
You're asking why there's diversity in MMA?
Shit, might aswell ask why Barboza doesn't wrestle more.
