    Whether you like her or hate the former women's bantamweight champion you can't deny she is unique when it comes to women's mma. Always brings it, win or lose and has a very identifiable style that worked up until a certain pivot was introduced by a Winklejohn's MMA product. But besides that, I honestly miss Ronda in MMA.

    Very entertaining fighter and her judo was definitely great to watch. Post the Holm headkick KO and show some appreciation for the women's MMA GOAT.

    Its actually been a lot better without Ronda. She should just retire and go away.

    I didn't like WMMA until Johanna Champion came on the scene. The bantam weights are too slow and plodding for me.

    Agreed. I used to watch her keenly on her walkouts. That madface she had was one of the best walkout aspects I've seen. Her whole attitude was fun as hell. Sure, she's a bit imbalanced, but if I want a picture of mental health I won't turn to ppl who want to destroy other ppl physically for a living to get it. So who cares if she's imbalanced?

    I liked Ronda and I still do. Sometimes I think I'd even hit it but then most times I'm sure I wouldn't. But that's not what we're talking about. That sentence only happened because she's a woman and I'm a man. It's for this same reason that I respect her desire to break the female image free of the control of precisely the kind of chauvinistic, simplistic attitude I just displayed.

    Still, there are some dresses and weights she carries that make me think I'd possibly hit it if she smelled good.

    But I'd like her to come back and be champ, and that's really the point of this post. If this was about who we'd "hit" we'd be talking Karate Hottie and Miesha pretty quickly.

    But this is about Ronda. I'm sure of that much.

    Probably one of the greatest posts I've read on Sherdog.

    So honest yet so ambiguous and random.

    she was a bit pyschotic, maybe thats what i liked about her :)
    anyway she got the chance to get that knee fixed, she will be good to go for the rest of her career in UFC.

    I'm like that mutherfucker who chopped down the cherry tree. Even if I make things a little worse than I found them, I will be honest about it. If only the whole world were like that. I don't mean owning slaves like Washington, but more the honesty part. I'm definitely against the ownership of slaves, even for honest ppl.

    Oh, and thank you, sir. You're a person of rare taste.

    I almost quited watch UFC because of the ronda hype, thank god for Holly.

    Just so freaking tired of the hype,
    Even Rogan crying about she being 1 of a lifetime, what the fuck was that...

    Thank god she finaly got exposed.


    Too bad we never got to see cyborg vs ronda, but now we all know it would have been a complete mismatch

    WMMA is still entertaining but Ronda is missed, even by her haters and I think that's obvious.

    I'm glad she's gone. The division as whole is better off.Since she lost, there have been three new signings in the division. In the year before she lost, there were none, I believe. Also seems like more fights are getting booked in the division. It's becoming a real division now, rather than having a few fights to attempt to find a contender for Rousey. The Ronda Rousey show is dead. Long live the Women's Bantamweight Division.
