Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Ronda, she's just a good example of proving her own statement right.
She was a lot like Ronda (in terms of how the casual fan would view her if placed in a big market) before 2010. Two losses in two years can really hurt you in the way that you are perceived by fans though.
Personally I think strawweight is deeper than bantamweight at the moment.
