It is harsh to say, but she was in some ways a one-trick pony. What a trick it was, the devastating armbar, to which no one had an answer. Until they did.

Tarverdyan had no tactical answer to Holm and even less of one to Nunes’ blistering straight and overhand shots. Even with all that time to recuperate and prepare, Rousey did not learn an effective jab, the first and most basic tenet of boxing, one of MMA’s core disciplines.

Maybe she was unwilling to learn, but either way Tarverdyan was unable to either persuade Rousey of the value of a viable jab that serves as protection as much as offense, or unable to teach it to her.

ONE FULL YEAR TO FIX THIS!

The article is right. I thought she needed to such Edmond a long time ago, even before the Holm fight. He offered nothing to her and just made money standing around while she did what already knew how to do. Now that she's reached the limit of how far that would carry her, it's become clear he's just some jackass.

It's not just that she couldn't learn to box it's that she just cannot take a punch, she looked in trouble after only a few punches and 15 seconds and that is nowhere near good enough to be in the UFC competing at the top level.

It's callled MMA you are supposed to have a good base of Martial Arts and want to improve and learn new techniques/styles while playing to your own strengths and adapting to compete against your opponents weaknesses. She did none of this.

Also the rest of the field has got much better and figured her out, avoid the armbar and being taken down and keep it on th feet.

One trick pony is harsh but to be honest she is nothing more than a good Judo competitor.

Interested to hear other peoples opinions.

Rousey has always had pitiful stamina, Nunes has great stamina.
Combine this with Nunes superior reach and far superior striking technique, Rousey couldn't get close enough to make a difference.

I called this the fucking DAY their bout was announced.

>Interested to hear other peoples opinions.
See:
>>2101096
No stamina, not an all rounder, going up against someone with better striking potential, longer reach and more stamina.
Rousey was always overblown, no shit she'd lose to someone who has their shit together/a good coach.
>>
>>2101096
Nunes has better stamina than Rousey, sure. But Nunes does not have "great stamina". If her fights last more than 3 minutes it puts her in danger.

I bet she even sucks at world of warcraft

I hate to say it but she NEEDS to ditch her coach. Her boxing is awful. You can easily tell by her Holms fight.
>>
Can anyone lay out how and white she became so over in the world? who's dick did she suck, but desu i feel bad for her desu
>>
>>2101402

She literally just crushed a bunch of cans but because she was lucky enough to be born with a cunt she was labeled a trailblazer and GOAT instead of a one trick pony which she objectively is.
>>
Punk vs Rousey......who would win?

>>2101402
she was never good, the entire womens division was a joke and she was just the best of the worst

the women today fight the way men were fighting 15 years ago

Just look at the way the Gracies were dominating the early days of the UFC, until someone figure them out and their one trick shit became obsolete.

so what is she going to do after MMA? I don't think she'll be going back into the octagon ever again so she'll need a backup plan.

Well first of all we should acknowledge that Nunes hits like a truck for her division and is both fast and precise, it's not just that Ronda sucks but Nunes is a harsh opponent unless you can draw her out and kill her still questionable gastank later.

Having said that, beyond anything else what really brought everything crashing down was Ronda's mentality and preparation going into this. Her coach is a fucking hack who I hope goes out of business soon, that definitely played a part, but as soon as she got tagged once everything she may or may not have prepared went right out the window.

Ronda absorbed a ton of punishment and wasn't there after a bit, but even before that as soon as the first hard shot landed she went stiff, flat-footed and tried to swing against a better, longer striker who was keeping her within perfect punching distance and lighting her up. The funny thing is that as she did this she also looked timid and unsure of herself. She was trying to brawl with a brawler while also looking like she'd rather be anywhere else.

I think Ronda could still be a force in the rather green division if she just plugs some holes in her defense and footwork and learns to assure herself a safe clinch from where she can work the stuff that she outclasses everyone else in, but that lack of proper quality training and especially her own questionable mentality were the deciding factors for this.
>>
>>2100346
it's obvious she was relying on her namesake to intimidate all her opponents into freaking out. similar thing with conor except conor has substantially more ability.
her acting ambitions probably don't help. you can tell at the staredowns that she's softened up a lot.
>>
>>2101771
OBSOLETE!
>>
She may or may not have more winning performaces left to give, but she certainly has no chance as long as she keeps Edmond around. There are other problems she needs to fix, but finding a real coach is the biggest thing she can do for herself
>>
>>2102227
>legitimate world class fighter
>in a non world class division

She's still a joke
