Re: Nerds In MMA

From what I could see I think Rousey expected a quick and easy win, and when it didn't come, she got frustrated, didn't have a real gameplan, and pretty much played into Holm's hand. Kinda late, but the problem with Rousey is that she has basically one gameplan: rush and go for the clinch. If she g...

Weight does make a huge difference, but I am ok with the slimmer build in my films as long as it's not egregious (ex. sheer displays of strength). At the end of the day, it's comic book inspired reality.

That said, she could bulk up a bit.
