    If you think Ronda Rousey was overrated or some type of hype train then just go ahead and kill yourself now. How could someone be hyped of overrated when they won the title and defended it 7 times? Ronda is washed up and mentally broken, but that shouldn't cloud our judgement of her whole career. She is at least a top 5 GOAT candidate with GSP, Jones, Silva, and Fedor. And when you factor in the role she played in bringing WMMA to the mainstream, becoming a cultural icon and ambassador for women in general, 7 title defenses, a string of fights that lasted under a minute, the case could be made that she is the greatest ever.

    So save your "Ronda was overrated" talk because you look real stupid.

    She's mentally broke at this point but not overrated.

    Ronda was the most overrated and overhyped female athlete in the history of sports, even Danica Patrick and Anna Kournikova weren't overrated and over-hyped like Ronda.

    She is not overrated in a sense that she is the GOAT female BW. Nunes is close now, though.

    Ronda's past her prime, ergo the Holly and Nunes fights are absolutely irrelevant. What is relevant is 7 straight title defenses, 6 first round finishes

    Official GOAT list:

    1. Fedor
    2. Rondgoat
    3. Jones
    4. GSP
    5. Anderson

    "Once in human history" isn't ridiculous hyping?

    She was overrated.

    Her competition was pathetic and weak until she met the 2 women that beat her.

    She was overrated.

    Ronda is a rare example of being incredibly talented and putting on an amazing run, yet still being overrated and overhyped at her peak.

    Ronda is the a true pioneer of WMMA, incredibly talented at grappling, and had a great run as champion. She has rightfully achieved HoF status. However, she is no the greatest talent this sport has ever seen. She can not box Mayweather. She cannot beat men in her weight class. She is not a once ever athlete. Etc. etc. etc.

    She was a one trick pony who fought weak competition. The skilled ones like Tate and Cat fought her in a really dumb way and paid the price. In that sense, Ronda did well in her group, but that pool was shallow.

    Booger brain? Don't you have to be older than 10 to post on Sherdog?

    Not overrated. Just predictable and currently exposed. Literally the woman's Royce Gracie.

    Had a good run crushing housewives and shit.

    That's over now. Along with the movie career, I assume.

    She was great among a fledgling crop of fighters. It was obvious her whole career. She didn't have a broad skillset and didn't build on what she had so when everyone else evolved, she didn't and now the division is passing her by.

    I don't think she was overrated. She was just figured out. She stopped evolving. The other women in the division kept improving.

    She fought soccer moms. Like Cat Zingano, a mother who TKOed Amanda Nunes. And Sara McMann, a mother and an Olympic medalist.

    People were mentally matching her up with Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, saying she would beat most of the male 135 lb top-10.

    That qualifies as overrated.

    This is Sherdog. You are only as good as your last fight.
