Jesus watching that gif of the fight is awful. People ask me why I watch WWE and not real fighting... this is why. Hate seeing humans trying to knock each other out like that it's one of the most primitive activities you could ever take part in. Will happily stick to my Sports Entertainment rather than assaulting each other in a cage in front of cheering crowds.

Just to clarify I'm not against this because it's women fighting, I feel exactly the same about mens UFC stuff, just think it's sickening sport to cheer on.

Oh come on.  It's their choice and MMA and boxing is a good way to get peoples anger and stress out in a good way.  

 

And these people live way better lives than those who drink ,  smoke and eat unhealthy food all the time

I guess I feel this way, too.  I used to be a cop and I actually had a chance to get my ass kicked by an MMA fighter in training (and boy, did he!) so I'm not a wimp and I'm not afraid of a little blood.  Still, seeing Rousey go down like that--I don't know.  It was like seeing somebody I know getting assaulted.  Not my cup of tea.  I used to love UFC at one point.  Guess I'm just not the guy I used to be.

Yeah a lot of people cry about WWE having turned PG now but really I'm far more entertained by people being athletic with good story lines rather than people and their PR teams trying to "out scumbag" the other before going in to actually beat the other person unconcious, I just don't get where the entertainment is found here? Perhaps it's the same as the people who enjoy cock/dog fights, I mean sure there is an illusion of choice that the fighter has, but in reality a lot of the time their manager / sponsers make the real choice of who they stand in the ring with.

Everyone's hating on Rhonda, but fail to understand that even though she got a fall her division isnt competitive enough from stopping her ascent to get the title back again. She underestimated her opponent in a division that was clearly and utterly dominated by her. Rhonda might by an olympic level Judo athlete but she went tow to tow with a champion level boxer. If she fights her fight next time she can flip the script. If not then she will get waste her rematch. Either way Cyborg is most likely coming so they are both fucked.

Cock fights are a hell of a lot more fun to watch than human fights, IMO. Dog fights...not so much.

Yeah, she's not going to attempt this same tactic again, sometimes it's easier to climb to the summit than being on top and keeping all sides secure. Gotta say though; Holm was amazing in this match, a proper boxer for sure and her kicks are savage.

The rematch is happening:

"The rematch makes a lot of sense," White said. "I think the rematch is what people would want to see."

You are saying that men are better to lead the way, sexist!

Hey! That's my thing, what are you doing? :P

Eh... there wasn't much of a fight though. She tried to box a hands down better striker and was dominated. Ronda wanted to take it to the ground but she couldn't even do that.

I don't think Ronda underestimated, Holm was just fucking amazing that night and frankly just might be better than Ronda.

How many takedowns did you see Rhonda go for? How many clinches? How many judo trips? Rhonda was in over her head. Next time she'll fight without being so pig headed and underestimating her division. She will look back at the tapes and fix what needs to be fixed. Shes definitely a better boxer than Rhonda and that will not change anytime soon. Perhaps Rhonda needs to go back to the drawing board and be herself which is a mix of Judo and Jiu Jitsu.
