    it wasn't losing she needed to learn how to do, it's boxing she needed to learn

    and she had that lesson before in Judo accoring to her old coach, soon as she lost she quit.

    i couldn't let it go. it was too easy. Shit dude, every other champion has lost Want to learn how to lose? watch Dominic Cruz.

    it wasn't only winning that made the great ones great. it was losing then coming back better and winning again

    no one likes shitting on Ronda more than me, but should 'news' of Ronda be in the WWE thread?

    Ronda should have stuck to straight to DVD movies


    when does her flick with Seagal come out?

    how about that 'roadhouse' movie they're still making (last report)? lol

    Also, to me it wasn't that ronda was a sore loser, she was a terrible winner. she's rude, obnoxious and just basically unpleasant. when she crashed and burned it made it even easier to dislike her

    its been retooled

    its now called 'Road to the poor House'

    I never did understand why she was so cocky, besides the people around her kissing her ass

    but you would think being an Olympic caliber athlete she would understand if you werent getting better you were getting worse (relatively speaking)

    how could she not have seen her opponents were going to try and capitalize on any holes she has

    (giggity)

    I would lay that on head mooment. he had her fooled into thinking she could box. when the reality is she would just get in close and throw. soon as two strong girls figured out how to stop that it was all over.

    All she really needed was a proper camp and ironically some wrestling. She never needed to be a stand up fighter and her insistence on proving that she could trade with more experienced and more well-rounded strikers isn't going to elicit sympathy from fans.

    Ronda's ground game is still superior to the talent pool today but all that's moot if you don't control where the fight takes place, or worse, insist that the fight stay standing so you can live up to the narrative. She put her trust in people that had their best interest in mind, not hers. She didn't grow as a fighter in her last few bouts she regressed and became predictable and more 2-dimensional.

    She doesn't deserve all the criticism she's taken but she also never deserved all the accolades either. She was spun into a mythical figure and the fall is inconceivable from that height. That wasn't all her doing even if she enjoyed many opportunities and rewards because of it. Given the choice I'd love to know what she'd be willing to part with knowing how it ended.

    I'd like to see her return with a proper camp. Maybe an improved attitude toward winning and losing as well. I don't think the attitude and disrespect was why she was so successful, she was simply more skilled than her opposition. When pressed, she buckled. That's a where a bully's mentality is a weakness not a strength. Letting that go and competing for the sake of competition, I think, would let her evolve as a mixed martial artist. But that takes sufficient emotional growth and maturity. And she'll forever be under a microscope no matter what she does.

    this is the dude that made 'the happening' ' the big hit' and more awful movies. that doesn't bode well in the grand scheme of things

    i'd agree with this, though it's not like a couple months would have fixed that. had she left edmond back in the day she'd might still be in it.

    The Big Hit is one of his first roles and The Happening was an M. Knight Shamalan movie that was made before everyone realized dude had lost his touch. Wahlberg is one of the biggest movie stars in the world now. You can't shit on Ronda by saying she's doing a movie with Wahlberg as if that's a bad thing.

    I'd argue she never had to learn striking at all. Her issue was being groomed and brainwashed by a fraud. Read something earlier today about Karo Parisyan being the first person to call out her move to Edmond's/Glendale and how it would be the demise of her career and everyone thought he was just being his usual asshole, shittalking, weirdo self. Turns out that mofo was right. We also have demonstrable proof which coincides with Travis Browne's move there as well.

    i was just joking, he's made some real stinkers, but you're right, he's an A-Lister

    She listened to her mom her whole life and was the first woman to ever medal in judo in the olympics. but apparently she was rough as hell so i'm guessing ronda got pretty defiant and that's why she ignored her mom when she said she had to leave edmond. MAn she was so right about that guy tho.

    if ronda had a good camp I firmly believe she could have developed into the champion she had. but she was never going to be the ridiculouws superhero she was hyped to be.

    Saying she could beat floyd mayweather lol and cain 'under the right circumstances'

    the problem IMO is she bought into the hype.

    Ronda has a ridiculous work ethic, and with a bad camp she still managed greatness, with the right camp the sky would have been the limits for that girl but we'll never know.

    Ronda had talent, but she was a one trick pony in MMA

    No doubt, but she didn't need to be anything else. Even the match-ups she stalled and got knocked out in we can make a pretty good case and point to Edmond, because with the right approach everyone and their mother knows she can strangle Holly if Meisha could. Nunes on the other hand is a bad match-up, but I still believe she could maintain top control vs Nunes and grind her down.

    Seemed to me she just didn't expect holly to be able to stop her takedowns except the first one. Holly was able to avoid that overhook armlock and got back up. once she got up she made it clear she was ready. her hips were always in the right spot and Ronda never got her down again.

    at least that's how I remember it.
