...just as long as they get to keep putting on events i'll be happy either way, love watching the girls scrap
That could only be a good thing. Use Invicta like they did WEC and then eventually merge it.

It will be interesting to see how much time Carmouche gets next episode. I don't remember the previous ones being so biased.

I was impressed with Rousey's pad work. Her striking really looked top notch. I guess we see so little of it we don't actually know how good it is. Rousey's story about her dad was terrible. She didn't want to tell it, and she clearly had some serious issues because of it. The fact she doesn't know if he would be proud of her right now is pretty telling... who wouldn't be proud of a kid who's accomplished what she has?

The fight is a joke IMO. Rousey is going to rag doll and arm bar... like all of her other fights. It will be interesting to see what the UFC plans on doing as far as building a division after this... and marketing Rousey enough to make common folk want to watch her.

I dunno. Primetimes with GSP can be pretty heavy on the riddum, especially in episode 1. Ronda is the champ. I'm not sure there's anything to read into the bias.

I didn't know Ronda was the first American to win a medal in Judo. I was always kind of impressed with her Bronze, but I didn't know the context.

As for Carmouche? Shes a totally different beast to Rondas other opponents. I'm looking forward to the fight.
