    See, you have bought into the whole MMA circus. Swallowed it hook, line, and sinker. Try a little cognitive dissonance.
    Uh, no I don't usually have Thanksgiving dinner with her. Still awaiting my invitation. I know the same things about her that 99.9% of MMA fans know about her, which is what she says in public in front of a camera or microphone. And she comes off as a crass bitch.

    Something something big fish in small pond, blah blah Tim Sylvia as the UFC Heavyweight Champion, etc. etc. Gina Carano and Cris Cyborg, ad hominem male chauvinism misogyny?

    The above is only a outline, I leave it to my fellow critics to fill in the specifics.

    I agree on all your other points, but unless you're kidding (which you do frequently to excellent effect!) I think you should perhaps reexamine this concept. Repeatedly armbarring and pinning the physical specimens of elite judo is a thing.

    More importantly, many judoka have lackluster groundwork because it's not their game. It was very much Ronda's game. People knew she had the armbar, the refs were standing by to stand them up at a moment's notice, and she went home with a lot of elbows that used to belong in a gi.

    That said, I want Ronda to fight Cyborg while a nice and tough female BJJ black belt gets into MMA and paints a big red target on Ronda's back. Tate is a good grappler but we're talking about a different level here.

    You do this stuff unconsciously don't you? I mean, throw a straw man out there like I pass gas after a bowl of pinto beans with onions and couple of beers.

    Amazing, truly amazing. My dirty desert camo hunting/fishing hat is off to you.

    Really, why don't you just join her fan club? You can use a fake name, we won't tell anyone <wink>.

    Nice counter from Jacare there. After Rockhold pissing and moaning about Silva grabbing shorts and "not acting like a champion", and then grabbing the cage in his next fight, I hope Jacare smashes his face in when he gets his rematch.

    Has anyone found the Tate vs Kedzie fight?
    I only saw the 3rd round and that looked like an entertaining fight!


    Found it on "all the best fights"

    She armlocked a BJJ blackbelt in 25 seconds in her first pro fight.
