Nice interview. If a senior specialist like him says Ronda can be trained, I think she could have a great shot coming back. Of course it's not only boxing she is lacking, but fighting IQ and general EQ.
I would love to see her winning again, but only if she made major upgrades as a person who has so many fans.

Ronda being a super star puts her in a tough position. As much as she makes per fight, per her contract, the UFC has to match her up with a main event fighter every fight, so she can't really get any warm up cans because she makes too dang much per fight to do that.

I would actually like if Mayweather trained Ronda and she started fuking people up, and I don't even like her.

I would like to see that too, but only if she quit being a bitch, otherwise I can't help rooting against her no matter how skilled she may be. That's a norm for me for any douche, including Brazilians.

I think for her to make that kind of step and actually go seek help for guys who actually know boxing, she would need to change as a person as well and would probably become more likable. Unless she goes full Mayweather Jr.

If Ronda makes $3 million per fight.

A 5% cut of that would be $150,000.

10% cut would be $300,000.

I think anyone would train Ronda for 3 months if they were well paid for it.

Roy Nelson had one of the Mayweathers coach him in boxing.

I think Kevin Lee might have trained out of Mayweathers boxing gym.

There are MMA fighters who have been affiliated with the Mayweathers in the past.

A Mayweather help isn't to be thrown away.

Maybe someone should offer Ronda some wrestling training. The ground is her point of destruction and getting there via wrestling to some degree is more achievable than trying to play catch up on the striking game. I know she has a history of bad knees, but I thought she'd recently gotten that corrected.
