    Too much fuss over Rousey. She spends all her practice time on learning how to catch an armbar, and then wins by armbar. Take away her armbar, and you'll see great women's mma. Nobody wants to see a gal win by armbar every match.

    LMAO  I'm amazed that there are actually people who watch this crap and more amazed they keep up with what's going on there.  Have you guys considered tiddlywinks?

    @bambam824 Moron!   She trains for it, you know it is coming and you can not stop it.   Definition of a badass.   The goal is to win, not please knuckleheads.

    @bambam824Nonsense!  If you can stop it, do so.  Otherwise it's EXACTLY what she should be doing (albeit with a bit more class).

    Note - record use of armbar 5 times in argument and note.

    @MrArlingtonThat sound is coming from inside your head.  Anyone who truly appreciates / understands MMA will tell you that Rousey-Tate 2 was an excellent fight.  And if you really feel that way, why are you on this board at all??

    @MrArlington  Rousey vs Tate / Silva vs Wiedman... Silva should retire (nuff said).. R vs T -> for those that watched this years ultimate warrior led by Tate and Rousey i have a much stronger appreciation for Rousey (not that i didn't before). Tate is juvenile and likes to pick and prod to get under people's skin, Rousey, in this case and she got what she wanted. Someone who absolutely detests her. I don't blame Rousey for disliking Tate; it was well earned. Rousey proved to be a better coach and fighter ultimately last night and those that complain about Rousey not shaking Tate's hand should get over it. Ultimately its not a personality / bikini contest (Tate). Its a fight.


    the dust up over Rousey not liking Tate and shaking a hand is ridiculous!!!

    @MrArlington All you Ronda haters have is the old "women's MMA sucks" argument, since no one is going to beat her.  Next....

    @MrArlington You're way off. Adding women to the UFC has already created much interest from both men and women. It will increase the sport's popularity greatly whether you like it or not.

    Ronda started the crap first.  She said she could beat Tate's boyfriend in a fight because "he is below average and I am like World Champion'!   

    Better coach?  Ronda lost!  She gave her team burgers and fries then her guy did not make weight!  She kept telling Shayna how much better than Juliana she was instead of real coaching, she made her overconfident and she lost!


    Poor delusional Ronda thinks she has a chance to beat Cain Valesquez in a fight, yet she is scared of Cyborg.

    Are you serious?  Ronda has severe mental issues.  She acts like a spoiled child, she is a brat, she thinks everything she does is the most important thing ever.   She is a poor sport win or lose, although she has not done much losing except as a terrible coach.

    Great example on TUF, she pounded bar drinks out of the blender like a pig, then she drove home!
