    I was really surprised that she lost again. I wouldn't blame her if she retired. She's got plenty of money. Maybe there's something else she's interested in.

    She had the Rocky 3 effect. Fame and money changed her.

    She's a fraud the same way Royce Gracie was a fraud. Great at one aspect, but never able to adapt.

    The point of MMA is that you incorporate all of these practices. The fact that she is such a weak striker and defender shows that she was a paper champion. She is a Judo champion, and that is all she will ever be. Her game is so uneven it isn't even funny. That isn't to even suggest that the women beating her are champions in their own right. I'm sure that title will change hands often.

    Both women who defeated her have more experience than her and careers that began well before she was in MMA.

    Her striking coach is a hack and that's pretty much universally agreed upon. Rousey's loyalty to him couldn't have helped her.

    Even though I think you flat out don't like her.

    I think you are spot on.

    Royce Gracie made 260 lb men tap out in his fights. How can you call him a fraud? He is a legend. He won the UFC in the days where he was fighting 100 lb size differential.

    Lol, seriously.

    The Gracie family helped revolutionize the sport.

    Lol! That was kinda outta the blue. We use Gracie techniques in hand-to-hand training in the Army in basic and in PT (if you have a squared away platoon SGT that goes to the course in Colorado :))

    Gracie is an All Time Great. Didn't Shamrock, in his prime, tap out vs. Gracie???

    I'm pretty sure he tapped out to Royce.

    Obviously, you didn't get my point. No one knew how to combat BJJ when he first came along. The family picked him because he was the weakest of the bunch. Rickson was the family champion at the time.

    Royce Gracie would beat anybody in the UFC right now in his prime. So would Rickson and Gokor.

    Royce was never a fraud, he was the star of an infomercial. He was exactly what he said he was, an almost non-existent striker who knew Gracie Jiu Jitsu. He was supposed to prove its effectiveness, and he did. There was nothing fraudulent about it.

    No. Royce never possessed the skill set required to compete in the modern UFC with the current rules. Royce in his prime would get absolutely schooled by Nate Diaz, nevermind Nick. He would have almost literally no chance of winning. And Nate and Nick are hardly the greatest fighters in the world in their respective weight classes, although they are always great fun to watch.

    Hahaha, what? What kind of drugs are you on?

    That's my point. Rousey isn't a fraud, either. She's a one dimensional fighter who failed to adapt.
