Honestly I've been dragged into this season and am only watching it because one of the girls I train with has pretty much forced me to. The drama and the crying has gotten a little out of hand. And at this point I hope Tate bashes Ronda's skull in worse than Roxy's.

I guess. I mean she was cool enough and all, but when she looks that bad in the ring it kind of takes all the "happy attitude" stuff out of it for me. If you're going to be relaxed, at least be good.

the reason I get emotional is these women like Roxy and Shayna have fought for small crowds and small money for 10-13yrs, they finally get their deserved shot at the UFC then the years of fights have broken them down for the younger fighters to pick them off.

If UFC allowed women 5yrs ago then these women would've been champs, but thrust into the spotlight now at the beginning of their twilight years.

It just seems...unfair in a way.

Sorry, if you get smashed by a 1-3-1 fighter I don't care how many dues you've paid you don't belong on the highest level. Ken shamrock isn't in the UFC because he once was the greatest ever.

It's unfortunate that times have passed them by, but that doesn't mean they deserve anything. It sucks but that's a cold reality. And in many cases a reality most women aren't familiar with because in everyday life(outside of the business world) they aren't forced to deal with it.

Every woman I know complains about unfair pay and all that, but I know only a handful that actually work hard enough to be counted as doing the same work. And you know the crazy part? They all get paid the same if not more and did not hit a glass ceiling. However I don't work in the business world and I understand it is far worse in that field.

But my point remains the same, if you're not good enough you're not good enough and it doesn't matter if you used to be. It sucks but that's how it is.

Just caught up on the last episode.

Few things...

1 - Roxy was out from that slam and the fight should have been stopped right then. Terrible reffing.

2 - The crying this season is driving me nuts.

3 - the drama seems to be all with the coaches instead of the fighters this season. Rouseys head coach is a class A dickhead.

4 - I think I might hate Rousey more than any other fighter... Even more than Matt Hughes or Dan Henderson.

5 - has there been a coach that has come out of TUF looking worse than Ronda.

Thanks. Saved me having to type all that as I agree 100%

Was Dennis Hallman the guy that fought in the little purple underpants a few years ago?

indeed, she was obviously out after that slam

reality tv, I don't mind it, I understand those who do tho, just skip to the fights

3 - the drama seems to be all with the coaches instead of the fighters this season. Rouseys head coach is a class A dickhead.
Entertainment wise, it has its value

4 - I think I might hate Rousey more than any other fighter... Even more than Matt Hughes or Dan Henderson.
you just made me realize that I feel pretty much the same, and I really dislike matt hughes, tho I like hendo. Rousey makes the diaz bros look like deep philosophers. How she got so good at what she does with that mentality is one of the great mysteries of the universe to me.


5 - has there been a coach that has come out of TUF looking worse than Ronda.
Tito looked pretty bad, I think it is on par. Tito looked like an illuminated idiot, Ronda just looks like a plain arsehole. different tastes, different flavors

fun TUF to watch so far I'd say

That was funny. I remember Joe Rogan being very uncomfortable with the situation
