Log in to Reply wow March 26, 2013 Ronda has a massive hole in her game when it comes to her takedowns. She does that stupid ass gi overhand grip instead of getting an underhook. Problem is this is that it gives up your back and then she falls right into a scarf hold choke. All of this is fine and dandy if you’re in a Judo competition, where giving up your back doesn’t mean sh*t and they stand you back up again after a few seconds, but it’s a different ball game in mma for now. Luckily for her, there are currently no girls that can defend her takedowns.

After the rise comes the downfall. Society gives second chances, variably as they see fit. They come to understand the idol they esteemed was not but a human. Something successful and established they berate yet something ascending they propagate. if it is not one thing it is another, endlessly searching through to find weaknesses in others. Yet our bias is nothing but our own weakness. That is to lack foresight of what reality awaits us. If we judge others, best it be we judge ourselves. For that would be perfection if we were not tone deaf. Log in to Reply greengiant March 26, 2013 cyborg will smash any women out there period.why do you think rhonda won’t meet her half way?

Log in to Reply *****lipsbjj March 26, 2013 the cyborg fight is pointless… cyborg can’t even make 145… until this bitch gets bored, there will never be a cyborg figh. until cyborg first of all fights again and then until she actually makes weight, she will be just as relevant in the female division as anthony johnson is in male mma Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick March 26, 2013 @memphismike He is right.My grappling coach is a judo guy and he tells people not to use the scarf hold IN MMA because you will give your back…Just like Ronda did.And she had a girl who’s a striker and a fairly newcomer to MMA on her back with a neck crank.Any good BJJ girl would’ve choked her out.She definitely has good top control and armbars but giving your back is never good.They use a scarf hold in judo because you have a gi to hold on to and there will almost never be enough time in a judo match to put on a choke when you are fighting somebody goo who knows how to defend and the ref gets you back up after 10 seconds. Log in to Reply wow March 26, 2013 @memphismike Her takedowns are perfect if you’re doing judo, but in no-gi grappling, they are not. They would be perfect if she underhooked her opponent with her left arm, so that she wouldn’t risk giving up her back. When she goes with the hand over judo style, she risks giving up her back. She also risks giving it up when she does the scarf hold choke. How can we prove this: Tate and Carmouche both took her back. Why? Because of this the things I stated before. Are Tate and Carmouch better grapplers than Rousey? No they are not. Thus it’s a hole in Rousey’s game, but it can be easily fixed. If you don’t think Judo players are more likely to give up their backs than bjj competitors, that just tells me that you’ve never competed in your life. Log in to Reply NotVinnieJones March 26, 2013 I’m sick of all this Cyborg talk. Cyborg looks invincible against her opponents because she goes in practically 25lbs heavier than them on fight night. She’s a sloppy fighter and…again, I say…if she was good enough a fighter to win WITHOUT the steroids she wouldn’t take them in the first place. Pound for pound, she’s nothing special. Log in to Reply Noel March 26, 2013 You Cyborg tit-suckers need to look at Overeem. On PED’s, he’s a monster. Off PED’s… . Cyborg needs to prove she’s a legit competitor first. No one owes her a damn thing. Log in to Reply ditchpigii March 26, 2013 ^^This^^ Log in to Reply wcoastassassin March 27, 2013 I did Judo for over 5 years and was ranked nationally in 97. Being a veteran of many judo matches I will say Judokan do give up there back a lot more than JuiJitsu fighters. Like Ronda talks about getting submissions quick because you only get a few seconds before being stood up, they take more risks because giving up the back is not as big of a deal. I hope Ronda fixes this in her game and shows Judo is a great base for MMA. Karo Paryisan was a good fighter, just cut short by back injuries. Log in to Reply Ground St. Pound March 27, 2013 I never thought that MMA would evolve to the point where I might muse over the thought of myself in a threesome with two fighters from one of the camps. That alone is a lot of totally unanticipated progress. It’s a new paradigm in MMA completely. I don’t get all the hate for Rousey. I really don’t. She’s mastered a particular move more than anyone else has in all of MMA. In training, she gets guys with that armbar. We’re watching a virtuoso. Nobody else can find 1000 ways to get you one way when you know 100% what their gameplan is. That’s incredible. And @dondondon, that shit was not only evocative, it was actually the true story. Log in to Reply boss March 27, 2013 Ronda has more options that cyborg, period! More options to make the most money in her MMA career with the UFC. If Ronda does fight cyborg now, in my opinion, Ronda will lose. Not only that, she will lose alot of her appeal that she has built up to this point. Very much like Gina Carano did after she fought cyborg. Ronda is smart, take as many other fights as possible and when the time is right, then fight cyborg… It makes more sense marketing, business wise. Us hardcore fans just want to see a fight, but sometimes it’s not just about the fight itself when it comes to the UFC promotion. Log in to Reply Yomommamoto Norifumi March 27, 2013 That is by far THE best comment anyone has written on mmatko ever dondondon. Probably on any comments section of any website I’ve ever read. Spot on articulation of the correct perspective. People get so bent out of shape when someone succeeds and continues to do so eg. everyone waiting with eager anticipation for GSP’s downfall. The thing they forget wallowing in their own self pity and lack of self confidence is these people need to keep a winning frame of mind, a positive frame of mind and keep thinking positively about themselves, their performance, their body, athleticism etc…and sometimes it comes out in their language. Its simple sports psych. 101. Punch another bong hit and crack a Bud berater haters ’cause I doubt any of you Cyborg nut huggers (and she does indeed have nuts) have accomplished infinitesimally close to the number of things RR or Marina have accomplished. In short give credit where credit is due or STFU. Word also Noel. Cyborg is exactly that – an artificially constructed entity who needs to stop the artificial enhancement and compete legitimately.
