    I get that she had a bad attitude and deserves a bit of what she is getting but I think she's had enough. Its been a solid year of insults and I'm as guilty as any of us but its time to respect her for what she is. She is a great athlete that had flaws. She never had to learn striking or defense because everything came so easy to her in her early fights. Not many people would bother learning the game if they won in under a minute most of the time. She should have recognized there was a problem after Holly exposed her. She should have listened to her mom and left Edmond. She is stubborn and she doesn't know how to handle losing and that's why she is where she is now.

    When we look back on Ronda in 10+ years she deserves respect for what she did for the sport. She elevated the WMMA game. The rest of the women were forced to step their game up to compete with her and the result of this is better fights for us all to enjoy. At this point her bad attitude is forgivable and what she gave to the sport is what matters. Let her leave the sport in peace.

    I think Rogan is a big part of it.
    Crying and talking about her beating up skilled male fighters. He should be shot into space without a suit

    This.

    The whole Ronda hype train was like nothing I had seen before.

    Needed to not only be derailed, but burned to the ground as well.

    Sorry Ronda.

    She was 'disrespectful' towards 2 of her 8 opponents in the octagon.

    That makes her the devil according to Sherbro logic. Is normal.

    People enjoy seeing bullies getting beat down. If she had come out of the Holly loss humbled and with a better attitude people would have more sympathy.

    Ancient genetic traits from when we were living in tribes.

    Back then weak males simply didn't survive. Boys being biologically weaker and more susceptible to diseases and premature death. Boys were placed into male barracks at the very young age. Most males who survived into adulthood were very strong and healthy (otherwise they'd die either due to sickness or being killed by other males or wild animals). Dominant males would earn respect and power.

    Completely different with females. Female who would be too agressive back then meant trouble and would be killed and eaten very quickly. Since there were no weak males back then, cause they would die early - male part of the ancient camp would take over female completely. Also females were pregnant all the time and therefore much much weaker then they would normally be. Strong female who desobeyed dominant male was anomaly and had to be dealt with.

    You may argue that we are living in the different times ,however rememebr that majority of human history is exactly what I described. We spent more time in caves and everything we know today is very young. Of course your genes would lean more toward ancient traits that were there for thousands of years (or millions of years if you count our early semi-human ancestors).

    That's why when guy acts like Jon Jones he gets respect and when woman acts like Ronda Rousey she gets hate.

    She's a terrible sportsman. She dishes but can't take it and she acts like a cunt to a lot of people in very public ways.
