She’s got the “I’m dumb foreigner, I no understand” act down pat. That fake smile when she speaks to emphasize the no aspeaky english. 

Well said

Yeah... no cans for ronda at any point of her career.

Should have just melted the weight off with 72 hours of hard butt sex.

Yeah she was always pretty flat but I'm glad she didn't just go for a giant set of bolt-ons like so many other WMMA broads.

FatBuddha - Per Ariel's podcast, Mackenzie Dern thinks that her past weight cut issues were just due to her mind not letting her lose weight at the last minute.

And in this weight cut, she only started getting worried the night before the weigh in, and was surprised that sleep and a drainage massage (WTF is that?) didn't drop more pounds. After missing her plane, she drank water all day on the plane and didn't move for 14 hours. She weighed 139.5 pounds on Tuesday night, TWENTY-FOUR AND A HALF POUNDS over weight just a little over TWO DAYS before the weigh in but she wasn't worried about it until two days after that.

She also didn't work with a nutritionist before the fight.

The UFC is assigning her a nutritionist now, but she feels nervous working with one although she is accepting their help.

She wasn't surprised that her opponent accepted the fight because she is giving 30% of her show money.

I'm not surprised either. She was making $29k/$29k wich is probably double ABC or most other female UFC fighters not in the top ten. She gave ABC 30% of her show purse and an additional 15% of her win bonus for a total of about $11,400, or about $1500/ lb. Her weight miss basically gave ABC a win bonus. Certainly not the way she wanted to get it I'm sure, but probably helps the pain of flying to Rio and getting her head smashed in.

for reference ronda walksed at 148, dieted/trained/lost fat to 143. said she couldnt lose more. the rest was a water cut

Remember Ronda's weight cut back when she coached TUF that she did to prove a point- what were her numbers- anyone??  Thx!

Good question ruined by a douche signature to a forum post

yeah....when people say its planned or intention, theyre giving her way way way too much credit.

id wager you have to tell her not to look at the sky when its raining or she'd likely drown

I just don’t think Dern has the passion for MMA. She seems to be in it for the good times. After what happened with her old gym, her response, and missing weight, I don’t think she’s training to be a champion. 

Would bang her like a screen door in a hurricane though. 

What happened at her old gym?

It sounds like they told her to leave. It seems she doesnt take mma serious, missing weight, unlearning the english language.

Athleteticism or tremendous talent has no correlation with intelligence. In fact, the ones who has to be smart are those who are not gifted with physical talents. Like other sports stars she has probably neglected education in favor of reaching heights in sports and become one of many: dumb athletes. 

Throw in some quite dumb people to surround her and tell her 1200 dollars worth of yogi chakra massage will open up her lymph nodes and release water vapor through the skin by changing the PH balance of her constitution and altering her chi, then you have a dumb athlete who is also misled and failed. She fucked up. Now change things, change people.
