On a side note, did anyone else think Shogun actually beat Machida in the last fight? Damn scorecards!
I'm not a huge MMA fan but I do like to watch the bigger MMA fights because it can be an exciting sport when they start brawling. Some of these MMA KO's are crazy but I just can't stand when they get on the floor and start "dry humping" I'm a boxer and there's some MMA fighters that train at my gym and the boxers and MMA fighters always talk shit to eachother (all in good fun, nothing disrespectful) but we all have fun. Sometimes we'll fight eachother and none of them can put up a fight when we box and I've fought some of them who are 30lbs above me. I can put up a decent fight when we do the MMA fighting until they get me on the ground so aside from the shit talking they respect us and I have a lot of respect for them cause I know it's a tough sport but I'll never enjoy watching grown men wrestling and dry humping on the ground that's just my opinion but other than the ground fighting I enjoy the rest of the sport

She started reading her own headlines, she will be back.

Just wish she could get in the ring with that serial woman beater Mayweather.

One of the under-appreciated aspects of Holm's victory was her grappling defense. Rousey tried to get her to the ground two or three times and Holm stuffed the attempts (even reversed one of them). Firas Zahabi had a nice breakdown on how Holm kept her arm on the inside of the clinch and elbow tucked in instead of around Rousey's waist (which Ronda uses to toss most of her opponents). Holly also kept her hips lower than Rousey's, which prevents the judoka from sliding the hips under for the toss.

If Holm doesn't defend the takedowns, it's a different fight. Ridiculous training camp by Jackson and Winkeljohn.

As someone who trains in her former gym (joined after she left), I wholeheartedly agree.

Crazy. I like Rousey. She's a bitch and I like that.

Although, she's basically the female Mayweather and I hate him. Huh. Weird.

And she would get destroyed of that were to happen, even though we know it wouldn't.

you think Floyd could get up if he got on the ground? I think swinging standing up, advantage Floyd for sure.

I don't see why it couldn't happen, Floyd is about as female of a man ive seen in awhile. Beside having zero character as a person.

Could she get him to the ground? We already saw how she does with someone with boxing skills.
