    Can you please find some stock pictures of Rousey where she doesn’t look like a Japanese cartoon character? I realize that isn’t easy, as every time someone aims a camera at her she flashes that insanely exaggerated Joker smile….but please try.

    Gilbert better take it the ground he knows Pettis is lethal on his feet

  • John Dom

    Sorry, but that isn’t “training” for Melendez. He is taking it so easy on Rousey, and still beating her up bad. He even could have slammed her to the floor or do a back-breaker on her, but he just wanted to make a nice show of it, so he let her off easy.

      Training means you don’t hurt your opponent. During the film study you can break it down and then work on the things you need to work on.

    • Adam Tetrick-Lindberg

      Gilbert is obviously bigger and stronger than Ronda. It would defeat the purpose of what they are doing if he were to just out muscle her.

      • truth

        and you think he would work dillashaw (same weight as ronda) like that? hell no. also dummying a grappler whos not as good as you and smaller gains you nothing, take it from someone who actually does this

  • myself

    so, Rousey trains with Magaña and those bitches from TUF 20 not surprisingly
