It would be in Frankies best interest to get in the mix at 135

He has no future at 145

You can't create ALL of that in a boardroom.

I mean yea she beat the stiffs they pitted her against and in dominant fashion youre spot on there but did you ever look at those fights like you were watching the pinnacle of combat. It was all just so amuterish looking. Wasnt till i saw JJ fight that i respected the idea the ufc wanted real women fighters and not jus cupcakes with long hair clawing at eachother

Im sure theres other examples and maybe better ones but i never respected her overall skill level which is why i can so comfortably say an above average size man would... manhandle her

As I said, the sport evolved and she didn't. JJ is that evolution. So is Nunes.

I saw the holes in her striking long ago.

But the women she beat were the best fighters at the moment. She knifed through a lot of them.

I'm just saying, you can't create all of that in the boardroom. She actually had an accomplished history in sport combat before she even got to the UFC and **** got hype.

Not really.

Aldo was the only guy he couldn't beat at 145 as far as we know and he may be headed to 155.

They may actually NEED him at 145 because if Aldo goes up, Max has no one to fight.

cant say they were stiffs. some of them same girls fought nunes. hell, nunes lost to alexis davis and cat, who ronda beat. nunes worked her *** off and evolved and got better with her all around skills.
ronda got way too comfy with her lifestyle outside of the fight gm. never evolved and fell back on her elite judo.
once she got tested, she folded. taking that yr off basically showed that she didnt want it anymore.

Im speakin to the level of skill exhibited in the cage...

it was pretty minimal by most of those challengers. I dont know how thats debateable... whose the chick that jus bum rushed her but didnt actually shoot for a single or anything and got hip tossed and immeaditely armbar'd

That was laughable. My little sister woulda had a better gameplan
post #35947 of 36384
That was cat and we all agree that was very idiotic laugh.gif

However she did beat Amanda after Nunes had a really good first round against her. But the way she beat Nunes would work in Hondas favor because it was a lot of grappling

Schaub hinted at Goldberg having some personal demons, said they never cost him the UFC gig, but its a known thing behind the scenes. I'm just gonna assume some sort of substance issue.

Still doesn't make sense why he didn't get a send off.

Anyone else here listen to Fighter & the Kid/JRE?

The no send off was bizarre and has been unnoticed it seems

Like, dude was there for 20 years ... the media doesn't care the UFC didn't care rogan didn't even say anything

Schaub be saying some of the dumbest things sometimes sick.gif but I mess with the show. He recently started doing "Big Brown Breakdowns" which is just him breaking down fights. I'm starting to like that more than the actual Fighter & the Kid podcasts.

I listen/watch Rogans podcast also but I feel like since he is an employee of the UFC he holds back when it comes to certain topics or is mad biased. Schaub on the other hand goes in on the UFC. I listen to both to find a middle ground laugh.gif

Chael and Matt Serra's podcasts tho sick.gif
post #35969 of 36384
JRE got super off track on that last episode. Dudes started talking about **** like beastiality, cannibalism, mad cow disease etc roll.gif

Schaub and Bravo are such airheads
