It got her fight of the night, and tripled her income she was the biggest underdog of the night and put up the best fight that means something. Maybe not to you but to thousands of people chanting her name it did.

Villain?

I'm wondering if the whole Ronda-as-villain thing is calculated to generate PPV sales. If she continued to post first round arm-bar finishes against seriously outclassed opponents the UFC could not justify her as a genuine main event headliner much longer. She admitted as much in the post fight presser with her convoluted Batman analogy. Now they have a huge base that will tune in with hopes of seeing her lose.

Looks like she's embracing The Heel persona although I know deep down inside that may not have been what she wanted. I mean who wants to truly get booed man. But man those judo throws were my favorite part of the show. Then segue those into submissions that is top notch.

Think I warmed up to Miesha a bit. In reality her only training partner is her boyfriend. I think I remember her tweeting for sponsors. She'll get there along with the others' who are struggling to make a living off this sport.

So, the positives I see from the male division getting decimated at the moment is that it'll give more exposure to WMMA. When Cyborg arrives it's going to be huge!

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Could very we'll be the case.

I also wouldn't be surprised if she and the UFC saw how badly she came across on TUF and decided to play up to the fact she's disliked now.

Michael Bisping has sold PPVs for years based on the fact a vast majority of people can't stand him.
