After that fight, for me Ronda is one of the most overrated athlete in history. Grabe ang pag hype sa kanya sa UFC kahit na 5 or 6 fights pa lang syang walang talo. Opinion ko lang.

Ronda went 12-0 before losing. She has limitaions on her skill set, but she wasnt overrated. She has beaten and destroyed legitimate competition: Zingano in 13 seconds (who beat the current champion down), tate twice (who beat holm), kaufman, mcmann, and davis are all legit and are some of the best in the division.

Her skillset got exposed and she just didnt evolve with the sport and has bad coaching. It happens. It doesnt diminish her accomplishments as an athlete.

She paved the way for three women's divisions in the UFC. Won a bronze medal in the olympics. And was successful as an athlete and draw in the biggest mixed martial arts promotion in the world. I dont know how someone who has done that can be called overrated. No one goes unscathed in MMA. Not Ronda. Not Anderson Silva. Not GSP. Not McGregor. Not Chuck. They all taste defeat.

She may have been overhyped, but she isnt overrated.

lahat ng laban niya sa UFC except kay davis while lumalapit sa kalaban sinasalo niya ng mukha niya yung mga suntok.. dapat yata tinuro ni edmond ay paano mag weave against strikers and wag yung makipag palitan while lumalapit.. worked for them several times but accident waiting to happen talaga yun.. and nawili siguro kila zingano and correa where naka quick kill.. nag improve yung punch ni ronda pero yung necessary skills to be an effective boxer/striker ay wala.. no head movement.. no footwork.. direcho lang sa kalaban whilw yung ulo naka gitna sa striking range..

dami nag ooffer kay ronda mag coach.. parang intetesting if magland siya sa TAM.. siguro ok ilaban sa kanya muna si Peña or Pennington.. build muna ulit siya ng confidence.. then siguro either zingano or holm ulit and if swertehin payback kay nunes.. tapos armbarin niya agad.. :lol: and si ronda naging kups kay meisha kasi may personal na pinag huhugutan.. pero itong si nunes talagang panay pa din ang pag throw ng shades kay ronda.. someday gusto ko makita nagkukumahog sa pagkawal sa armbar ni ronda yan then magngangawa sa pag tapout.. though malayo layo pa ang possibility.. pero sana.. if ever makabalik si ronda.. sana siya pa rin may hawak ng title..

That beatdown of BJ Penn was tough to watch. I have no interest in watching BJ Penn fight ever again. He's a legend and everything, but he needs to step away for his own safety.

Yair Rodriguez is an animal though, his offensive arsenal is crazy. Will be fun to see Yair vs Cub Swanson next.

According to Dana White, it looks like the McGregor - Mayweather fight is likely to happen.

I didn't think it would, because I always thought the UFC would try to block that fight because it's potentially damaging to their number one money maker.

I personally think that McGregor gets embarassed. He's a very talented striker and mixed martial artist, but his only shot here really is a knockout, which is highly unlikely.

Anyway, this is bound to be a huge payday for Conor, and as a fan from the start, I'll be hoping he pulls this off.

I like what Nate Diaz said...it will be tough coz it's pure boxing, but there's that puncher's chance for Conor.

Im both a weidman fan and a gegard fan, buy im happier that mousasi won.

I thought weidman was playing up the call hoping to get some rest, a point deduction, or a dq win. The plan backfired and gegard won.

I though mousasi was going yo finish weidman anyway before it was stopped.

Grabe si Mauler kahapon.. though props pa din kay teixeira and his team for his great conditioning.. he could have folded sa first four rounds pero kakaiba yung toughness na dinisplay niya and every stsrt ng rounds parang fresh ulit.. though too much na talaga yung tatlong sunod sunod na uppercut na sinalo niya sa 5th.. great fight from both guys..
