In my opinion, If you dont tap, or verbally submit, then you get what you get. It's the responsibility of the fighter in the submission to stop it, Not the fighter who has the hold.

Rhonda was right in cranking that arm and 100% should have kept going until the tap. Nobody is complaining at frank Mir snapping limbs and I dont see how this is any different.

In that video, if you see what Rousey says as the video is showing it makes sense, she did let the submission off just after it was totally locked out - I dont think she tried to cheat a win...which is what it looked like at first. You can see why she was not gonna let go of this one though....for the title against a world class female fighter.

Yeah, her story matches perfectly to the video evidence. Sounds like the other fighter was just bitter and trying to get out of a 25 second loss.

And she did have choices if Tate was too tough for her own good. She could have called out to the ref that it was breaking and asked him to stop it earlier. Its not as egregious as Steve Cantwell saying he's "always wanted to do that" but its not far off either.



Apparently their idiocy, self-absorption, and lack of class is contagious.
Go ahead, call me names, I don't really care. There is a clear difference between Ronda and Cantwell, so to even make a comparison in any fashion is a slap in the face to MMA fighters. Do I think Ronda wanted to break Tates arm and possibly ruin her career? Nope. But it is Tate's job to protect herself at all times, including tapping to prevent injury. Ronda shouldn't feel bad or back down because Tate is a tough as nails DOB.

This is my point. When she didn't want to break the arm she tried to avoid it. In this fight she didn't try to avoid it. That's shitty.

Not sure where I called you a name? (maybe my evil twin got loose, but he's safely caged in an alternate universe.) I offered a description of the Diaz's and suggested these traits have infected Rousey - but now someone says they barely train together - so who knows if that's the source. Maybe she's just mentally weak and took things too personally.

Difference in egregiousness but not the nature of the event. If Ronda wanted to avoid permanently hurting Tait she could have done *something.* But she was huffy about the head butt and showed immaturity and lack of self control. In human activity there will always be differences of opinion. I'm just saying that I will not be a Rousey fan (which I was starting to become) for the foreseeable future, and as it stands now I'd be delighted to see her laying up against the cage with eyes rolled back and leg pinned under her Rashad Evans via Machida style.

Well hopefully that happens sooner rather than later. This thread wasn't made for the sake of debate. Take it elsewhere if you're looking to argue.

More Ronda apprecitation:P

It's Tate's responsibility to tap, Ronda letting go because she's concerned about Tate puts Ronda in a position to still get beat. Fights not over until ref says so or a fighter taps, there's really not much else to it.

Your reference to me being "sub-human" because I don't believe she should feel bad about Tate's arm.
