    Rousey caught that work Friday, she should take her 3 mil and call it a day. There's a lot of other things she can be doing.

      its better to try and do what you know best than to stand there and eat punches lol. and nobody is saying she has to go for the take down running in head first.
      Where exactly did I say that? The point is that people insist that Rousey needs her ground game back, but totally disregard that Holm and Nunes both have amazing takedown defense and beyond superior striking ability. You have to wait for/create openings to get takedowns, and when you're up against someone who has fast hands and feet, it's not easy. Holm used several straight leg kicks to keep Rousey at distance, and repeatedly landed with both hands. Rousey didn't go for a takedown right away because she couldn't get in, and after she got hurt, she was likely mentally discouraged from getting hit too much. With Nunes, that story tells itself.

        A lot of men will bang ugly, fat chicks when they're too drunk or too horny

        it doesn't make the women more pretty

        I had a friend whom we nicknamed šthe ambulanceš, because he'd pick up anyone.

        Dude was always horny and looking for ***** and little else. The dude was good looking, but he would target the fattest, loneliest girls at parties, so he could have sex with them as quickly as possible, and he was very succesful. Ronda would be right up this guy's alley

          once again, nobody is saying she has to run in head first trying to get that take down. she was successful with it before, she just needs to stick to it.

          she got a little carried away when people started complaining that all she does is take her opponents down. thats when she started trying to trade which was her downfall. judo is not strong for mma but when you're in a position to use it, it works well.

          look at all her past wins, how do you think she was able to get the w? look at guys like yoshihiro akiyama who uses judo very well when in a situation to do so. of course nobody is saying judo will win you all your fights in the ufc., but to say it doesnt work is wrong. all martial arts style works, you just have to know how and when to apply it. if you're a master in karate, you cant be throwing a round house kick from 10 feet away hoping it'll connect, thats why i said you have to know how and when to use it.

            you made it seem like it by saying do you know how hard it is to take someone down who has good hands.

            no, ronda didnt go for the take down at first because she bought into her own hype. when she found out she cant stand and trade with holm, it was too late. ronda started the fight with holm trying to play her game and it back fired on her.

              you remember the toney fight against couture? having great hands doesnt mean you cant be taken down.

                she was succesful because WMMA was on diapers and the talent pool was very poor

                as soon as she faced elite strikers, she folded like a lawn chair

                the competition evolved but she didn't

                her attitude doesnt help either, she's arrogant, sore loser and poor sport, she didn't learn a thing from her previous defeat at it showed

                good riddance to her
                Not true. Alexa davis and cat zigano who rhonda destryoed both koed nunez. They can go for takedown better than rhonda can. Styles make fights.

                Any the competition did not evolve.

                    Shifting the goal post. Most people would be willing to sleep with an average looking woman but that obviously doesn't make the women models.

                    Rousey is an average looking woman.

                      I actually said "good hands AND feet," but to hell with reading the entire comment.

                      As far as the rest of your comment, believe what you like. If you think Rousey was "done" 3-4 minutes into a fight, then that's your opinion.
