    Jiu Jitsu and wrestling in mens MMA is now something that is defended with ease. Once in a while you get someone like a Maia and a DC but for the most part, takedown defense is at an all time high. Strikers learned to stop that noise.

    WMMA went down the same path. You got these girls who clearly throw girly punches with no snap. No footwork. Just grapple heavy styles and Ronda was the best at that. She beat them all. Then came Joanna, then came Holy, then came Valentina, now Nunes. WMMA has finally evolved before our eyes. Now its watchable. The days of pitty patty punches with goofy striking is over. Crisp striking with TDD and good enough BJJ is all you need in MMA.

    The Ronda era was simply a female Royce Gracie era. Those days are done. Here come the killers.

    It's evolving before our eyes. It was created FOR Ronda, but it's so big now that they can't kill it even though Ronda's gone.

    It was inevitable

    Ronda was the best thing to happen to the sport, brought out the chicks who are tough as nails and were fighting for 10 bucks behind truckstops in the winter with leather fucking knuckles and iron in their souls
