Any thoughts on Germaine De Randamie saying she deserves more respect than she receives?
Our culture isn't really built on being respectful to others. Its revolves more around judging people negatively and throwing people under a bus as if everything was like jerry springer or the maury show.
I hope people realize those born and raised under that jerry springer worldstar hip hop culture may not be likely to show much respect anytime soon. Some grow up learning only how to destroy. Tear people and things down in a weak attempt at instant gratification. Only knowing how to criticize, attack and destroy is a crippling disorder. What it takes to have value in life is knowing more how to build things, rather than tear them down. Would people agree with that btw?
Well the problem with Germaine de Randamie is that while she deserves respect, she didn't do herself any favors when she refused to fight Cyborg despite her being cleared of the recent USADA issues. Ultimately she ended up fighting the featherweight champion in Amanda despite the fight being at bantamweight but it still caused an issue. Also while I support her 100%, she probably didn't do any favors in the current culture by publicly supporting law enforcement.
Germaine de Randamie while she did have several weird moments in her fight with Holly Holm is typically a respectful woman towards her opponents. Her refusing to fight Cyborg was another example of her being very weight in dodging an opponent. So going Alandra Blaze isn't something I would've seen her doing.
Yeah I was never buying her getting her tonsils out as a full grown adult. She was just scared about the idea of fighting probably the most athletic woman in the UFC. Ultimately she paid for it cause her weight cut didn't go well and she got stripped of the title and is now fighting at bantamweight.
