>>1026707 The world cup final is definitely women's football's marquee event and smaller competitions aren't such big draws. But the same is true of any sports competition. I mean, you can't do a strict comparison because there just aren't that many MMA shows. UFC does about forty shows a year. UEFA does about the same just for the Women's Champion's League, let alone international competition, national club competition, or women's football outside of Europe.
So that's why I think looking at the best these things have ever drawn is a good yardstick. If MMA shows don't ever hit that ten million mark no matter how stacked the card is, then they're just not as popular as women's football.
Since Ronda was so much better than her competitors she got lazy, didn't devellop enough skills, relied on the same tactics over and over again and so on..
By the way those "nobodies" were still women who were 4-time All-American and National Champion Wrestlers or BJJ black belts. It's just that an an olympic Judoka is a class of it's own.
I'm not even a fan of Ronda, but to make it clear for all the chouch potatoes here: If you are not at least an state level MMA fighter or Judoka, Ronda would have swept the floor with you, unless you had at least 40 lbs weight advantage or something like that. She was very good, technically wise.
Just because the UFC women's league is so much worse than the men's league (which has many reasons, but most of all the much smaller pool of fighters) doesn't mean any fucktard who comes to train MMA could fighte them just because he's a man.
>inb4 hurr, I'd just punch her, I'm at least as good as holm
She was never good. She was bad, and her opponents were worse.
Holm is an average fighter and she completely decimated Rhonda. At least Holm deserves some respect. On her feet she is decent from the years of boxing but even Holm is a serious underdog vs. Cyborg level fighters.
>she can beat you up!
Literally retarded. Any trained fighter will be an untrained fighter. Any trained woman would get flashed by an equally trained man. Men have a massive advantage over women and you know nothing about fighting if you believe otherwise.
No one is upset because Rhonda is a woman fighter, it is because she was over hyped as the best and she is no where close.
>>1026906 People are stupid and really only tune in to watch the hype train.
Joanna is cute and funny in her own way but she's polish and not classically attractive like Ronda is.
It's a damn shame. Joanna Champion is fucking incredible and fierce and she's a fucking wonder to watch.
People want to hate on the strawweight division for reasons I can't comprehend. The female strawweight division is 10x more interesting and exciting than female bantamweight and probably half the male weight classes.
