If Ronda feels she is losing or cannot get anything going against Nunes, she'll have to slip and move to get into later rounds. If I had even a molecule of respect for her coach I would expect some kind of game plan. He's just a one trick pony and Nunes is with a Real club.
But Ronda will be tired before Nunes. Amanda can get to round 3, then she gasses.

Ronda was tired after 1 round with Holly. And I think she gassed in round 2 with Tate.

So wearing AManda down isn't in her cards, because her cardio isn't that good either.

Well, looks like Ronda's going to get her acting career started.

Shocking outcome. I can't believe she didn't get a single punch in, especially with the preparation she undertook. Was hard to watch and this is devastating for her.

Expecting her to annouce her retirement. She had a great career, hopefully invested her money right and has a future in acting and other endeavors. One chapter closes another opens. I hope she does not contemplate suicide again or go down a road of booze or drugs to ease things though.

I said it before and I'll say it again, Dear Ronda, "You're NOT A F'ING BOXER !!!!!"

True. But the fight is gonna start off on the feet. So it starts with the striker's game. And Ronda has to strike some, just to set up her clinch. And she eats punches trying to close distance.

That worked in the past with women who weren't much better at striking than she was. But sadly, she can't pull that against professional boxers and strikers that hit harder than the past girls she faced, because Holly and Nunes results happen.

The good news is that she appeared to follow PACman's approach of taking a lot of time off so maybe she is fully recovered.

Also, I watched a couple of her interviews since the KO. She acts like she is broken, like a tamed bucking bronco. I think she is going through the motions. Her reaction to the first solid punch will provide an early indicator of where she is at.
Spot on! Your wicked smart!

Well that was ugly.
Her career is over or she smartens up and leaves that hack of a coach.

Nunes "She thinks she’s a boxer,” Nunes said of Rousey. “He [Edmond Tarverdyan] put that in her head and he has her believing that. I don’t know why he did that. She has great judo. She could go further in this division, but he put some crazy thing about boxing [in her head] and then her career started going down. I’m the real striker here.”

Her coach is a joke.

Rousey got a big check for this. From her prefight demeanor, it was obvious she had one foot out the door. Can't win with that mentality.

Lmao. Rousey got beat out the frame. Hopefully now she will fade into obscurity. Been over seeing the media hype this overrated woman up. She has no defense, it's like she just trained on her punches and nothing else. Her coach is trash, she should've canned him after that last arse whooping she received. And she's clearly mentally weak. She always seemed like a wolf ticket seller, I saw thru her facade a long time ago. Hopefully she hangs it up before she has another mental episode

Rhonda just retire. You can't fight. Lol
