As the kind of face of womens MMA, is her behavior on tuf showing her in a bad light?


Most people i talk to have a diminished opinion of her since watching the show.

It is no wonder she was worried about the show before it aired. She blames the editing, I am sure. But she really has come off like a cock punch.

Personally I think training with the Armenian posse is not helping her attitude any. " do you know who I am bro?" Phone Post 3.0

Other than the crazy behavior regarding Tate, which I'll just leave alone (because everyone already knows what's up), I will add that her picks seemed poor at the time, and her attitude and advice/predictions regarding matchups is terrible. It's weird: Her mother and coaches taught her how to fight, but it seems like she doesn't really know much about the fight game.

Ronda has been engineered to be the female Armbar Terminator, and she is without a doubt one of the most impressive female fighters ever. That said, she is horrible in giving advice and analyzing matchups. Horrible. She's too early in her career to be coaching. She is living in fight-mode, and has no idea how to coach. That's not her fault, but it's going to hamstring her fighters all season. If Ronda can't leave emotions out of decision-making, it's only going to get worse.

This has happened before on TUF going both ways.



I did not think much of tito as a person prior to TUF but he seemed like a great coach.

Same with Chael. Didnt like him before, but he seemed like a hell of a coach, motivator, matchmaker for his team.


Then you have dudes like ken shamrock, rampage and now ronda (at least to start out) who just seem to go on their and embarrass themselves.

If you surround yourself with douche odds are you're a douche, I think Ronda is just showing her true colors.  The good news for her pocketbook is that people love to tune in and watch a bad guy lose, so I imagine a lot of the people that don't really want to see her headline PPVs or other cards actually tuning in to hope she loses.

That coach of hers embarrasses himself more than her, lol. Almost.

I thought it funny when he told Baszler in between rounds "she's scared of you". What round did he watch? I never liked coaches that give you bullshit in between rounds.

That their folks is the beauty of being able to edit tv shows, can make any person into a villain, I'm pretty sure Tate has done ALOT of shit talking that had been edited out.

Tell your GF congrats any sucker for reality TV. (same thing I told my old lady).

VTFU.

The producers can't edit what you don't give them. If Ronda wasn't crying, making threats, and generally behaving like a spoiled child, the producers wouldn't be able to air footage of her crying, making threats, and behaving like a spoiled child.

MMA ability doesn't translate into personal integrity or class. Ronda may be a super bad ass at what she does, but girls with her personality are a dime a dozen in trailer parks everywhere. Phone Post 3.0

Edit excuses aside...crying into the camera saying "she's going to pay for each smile" is pretty lame.

It's pretty clear that althought Ronda may be an Olympic gold medalist and a UFC champion she would never make it in the WWE.  

Ronda doesn't have the stuff to be a WWE Diva's Champion.

I think so. Like others have said before Shamrock and Rampage never fully rebounded after their stints on TUF. Ronda is only 3 episodes in and public opinion seems to be shifting. Even random dudes at my BJJ school are talking about it. They all seem really surprised and out off by her personality. Phone Post 3.0

Editing can only do so much. You can't edit a guy who is quiet and humble and turn him into the next Junie Browning or the "Let me Bang" bros. If you're coming across as an asshole on the show then that is because you acted like an asshole on the show.

I love this "it's all editing!" excuse. Did editing make her kick open the door and strop in the gym to demand Tate leaves? Did editing somehow turn a calm, rational response into the tirade of tear-soaked "She'll pay for each smile!!" insanity? Did editing make her handle the situation at the bar by calling over her equally unstable coach to try and provoke a bar fight?

On top of that, Ronda has been Dana's golden child since she signed on. She got those awful Metro PCS commercials. She gets all kinds of magazine coverage. She even landed a couple of movie roles. Why the hell would they want to intentionally turn people against her? If anything, they would probably be aiming for damage limitation.

She has come off as a bitch so far.
And that guy who is always on her side seems like a complete douchebag.
You can't blame editing for the way she has acted and the stuff she has said. Phone Post 3.0
