She should give her blue belt back after that Holm fight.

 

That shit was embarrassing.

Holly has been training how many years at Jackson? Do you think Holly has no ground game? I bet she has a shit ton more hours wrestling and grappling than Megan.

The thing is Holly was insecure on the ground as well, and lost many openings for a mount and a gazillion submissions.

It was not like Holly’s ground game was spetacular. It’s just that Megan’s was far worse and she was completely lost on the ground.

Nope. I said it sarcastically.

Weak Eater was always mocking Dern’s striking. My question is what she thinks of Megan’s and even Holly’s ground game.

Megan’s biggest win is Charmaine Tweet. She had no business in there woth Holly other than her ability to make weight.

I think Dern could beat Megan, at any weight.

Trained with a lot of mma fighters who barely throw a gi on and have upper belts in bjj and almost clueless on the ground, even high level mma fighters. Meegan appears to be one of them. On the flip side there are a ton that are focused on mma but bad ass even the gi.

I suspect Holly has been working her ground game too.

this. Holly has 8 years of training and experience on Megan. After this fight I think Megan has a lot of potential. Her game is perhaps not as rounded as it should be but I doubt she'll get dominated on the ground after this fight unless she's fighting Jacare or Maia.

Holly has been fighting since '02. Megan's first fight was in 2013. I guess its more like an 11 year gap but you can find all this on Wikipedia. The rest is opinion based on the fact that Holly's strength has always been her standup and she appeared to want no part of Megan there. She has a ground game because she's trained at Jackson for years. Give Megan 11 more years and I have no doubt she'll be fine on the floor.

Holly went to the ground twice with Meisha (an average wrestler), second time she was strangled and the first time she barely escaped the RNC.

And this at the end of a fight were she was winning on points and all she had to do to keep the belt was to survive one round.

And now, to justify Megan's embaressing performace some prople talk like Holly is the female Marcelo Garcia.

“Holly didn’t want any part of Megan standing up”. This bullshit  is being repeated over and over. Truth is Holly ate an early knee that hurt her. Period. She won all other exchanges. In rounds 2 and 3, she was closing the distance, landing 2-3 combos and circling out AT will.

She looked a lot faster and definitely won the fight standing up as well.

Holly Holm didn't seem too impressive. It felt like she found a way to survive and win more than anything else.

 

Truthfully, it was weird watching Megan on the ground. She did nothing defensively or offensively.

Having trained with Team Alpha Male when I was younger, pretty much everyone trained with a gi and trained without it; and if you notice, none of them really get whooped or stuck on bottom too much. It's all about practice.

Her ground game is horrendous. She’s been working hard on her wrestling with izzy though.
