Yeah, when Holms boxed her ears off, Rousey thought she could learn how in a really short timespan. Not.
In fact, she has a boxing trainer as head coach. It was definitely not the right gameplan (if there was anyone…) trying to box Amanda Nunes out. Against Holly Holm the same thing happened. I don’t know why she is boxing a three time world boxing champion and than trading with a heavy handed fighter like Nunes.
I think her head coach is a big problem for her. He told her to box Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes, and Nunes isn’t even that hard to outbox because she drops her hands after every punch.
Go easy on Ronda. Never really a great fighter – she initially prospered in as much as the one thing she did well allowed her to dominate a fledgling division in a fledgling sport. And she looked good too. Never a bad thing. Yet nobody can ever take away the fact she did so much to help pioneer women’s MMA worldwide – even if the sport she helped create simply outgrew her in the end. And now she’s rich beyond her wildest dreams. Which is a damn sight more than the legions of Twitter trolls now abusing and mocking her are ever likely to be.
Only you could introduce an obscure analogous reference comparing women’s MMA and a major historical figure of ‘The Terror’ within the French Revolution!
Nice one Barley. You must be eating your weet-bix friend.
Perhaps she may attempt an exit as dramatic as Charlotte Corday? The Royalist assassin of the Jacobin provocateur and agitator Jean Paul Marat?
Lol. Just felt he was the ultimate example I could think of where someone was eventually destroyed by a monster they did so much to create (I believe Corday’s face reacted with shock after the executioner held her head aloft and slapped it. Nasty). BTW, Happy New Year, Ki mate (and I WILL start sending emails soon. I have just got to get in the habit of doing it. Never really have before. Old school. Lol). Kudos Ki.
Hey no sweat on the emails, I know you mean well, it’s a peculiar form of communication nowadays for some reason.
It was (the analogy) the best one I’ve witnessed in a long time. Imagine Adrien Broner pulling that one out of his hat during an interview
Lol. If only I could fight like Broner………..or maybe not on second thoughts.
Ronda should take some boxing lessons from her friend GGG and she should rely more on her grappling and wrestling technique where she is really good. She can’t outbox or outpunch girls with a longer reach so the best tactics for her would be cutting the distance and trying to take her opponent down to the ground, followed by an armbar or strangling.
GGG gonna impregnate him
Look up footage of Ronda shadowboxing on YouTube: hilarious
come o se is a judo bitch she cant box she needs to retire
