TUF 18 - Rant on Rousey

Postby out4thecount » Sep 12. 2013, 04:27

Ok, I'm pulling this thread back up after the latest episode of TUF and the latest ridiculous outbursts by Rousey.

Right now I would pay good money to see a 2 on 2 mixed match between Honda and DW vs Cyborg and Tito!

Or just any fight that would see Honda crushed

She really is a nasty hypocrite!!!! I would soooo love it if Tate beat her!!


Below - written after episode 2

What a bad loser!

Ronda Rousey is losing me as a fan after just 2 episodes! I understand being competitive and hating to lose but she acted like a spoiled brat in my opinion. Can she not just accept that her fighter lost to a better fighter on the day? Her behaviour was pathetic. Tate and her team celebrated but were respectful throughout unlike Rousey and her fighter who were cocky and disrespectful. Julianna Pena fought a great fight and dealt really well with the other team's disrespectful antics, such as the playing card thing at the weigh in and Shayna mouthing off that she was leagues above the others etc!

Before the show I had the same high respect for both fighters.

I hope Tate's team win both genders on the show and that Tate somehow beats Ronda now.

Just me or do others feel this way too?.?.?.

I completely agree. I do not know what has happened to Ronda. When I was first introduced to her in Strikeforce I thought she had an awesome attitude. She seemed like a chill person who was good in front of the cameras and also fun to watch fight. Ever since she joined the UFC and Dana started to be her number one fan she has changed drastically. Her attitude seems fake and she really acts like a spoiled brat, like you said. It is almost laughable how she tries so desperately to act tough and start shit for no reason. It is like she is doing a really bad Nick Diaz impersonation or something. She is just awkward to watch at this point to me.

I think Julianna will win the whole show btw. She is a beast.

1- Ronda is a spastic.
2- Shayna Baszler has deadly grappling, but her boxing is nowhere near what I thought it was. Bit of a letdown really...

I've always not liked Ronda. I never saw the hype, truthfully. I've seen a few interviews that lost me a while back, and this just puts the icing on the cake. Actually the first episode, here she almost loses it because Tate was there. Just shut the f*ck up, Ronda. Your days are numbered, and you aren't the best in the world.
I predict that Daniel Cormier will be the UFC LHW Champion in 2015.

maybe all the pressure builds up and turns her crazy - she used to be a nobody and now she essentially carries the success of an entire female sport on her shoulders.

however, i dont personally think she's as big a lynch pin to womens MMA as she or dana think she is. dana kinda fucked her up with his handling...calling it the ronda rousey show etc building that massive pressure, swinging from her sack so hard for all the mainstream exposure she was giving UFC

She got caught in a rear naked choke, but I thought her wrestling and scrambles were very impressive.

Her take-downs were awful, she landed on the bottom too many times, her top control was ridiculous, her transitions were average. How many times did she went for a submission? 2?

rondas a d*ck, reminds me of jon jones. they're both pretenders.
great fighters but their media personalities are so contrived.

shayna's grappling in the first was amazing she looked decidedly gassed in the second which is probably why she got choked

Do you dislike her??
I thought her takedowns were far from awful. Her and Julianna's boxing was awful. The grappling was not.
She only started landing on her back when she started getting limp from exhaustion.
Her top control wasn't ridiculous either. It's just harder for lighter fighters to maintain top control and her opponent defended herself well.
Her transitions were good, again, while she had energy.
The submissions attempted arguement is moot too. It's not as if there was blatantly obvious opportunities to finish the fight by submission and she didn't realise it.

It's not that I dislike her, I just think her skills were overrated. She managed to take July down many times in the first round but wasn't able to pull shit, not even some GnP.
I think we will have to agree to disagree. :)
