i like Ronda's no bullshit attitude
, she doesn't pretend to cater for the masses she just is her self something we are starting to lose these days, and also the same ******* who bitch about her on forum are also some of the guys who twist the impressive fact that she finishes all her fight against top opposition in the first round into a negative cause she uses the same technique

Good point, I didn't previously realize that when people find ronda annoying that its just because they're a bunch of *******.

I'm all MAN buddy and I can't stand Ronda the person, the fighter, I enjoy, because she does kick ass and take names but her as a person, I can do without. I think Ronda is going to hand Tate a ass kicking hold the mayo. The reason we get to know the fighters more intimately is because of TUF, without it it would just be one fighter against another. Dana is going to back his cash cow, he knows Ronda brings in the money and is the face of women's MMA until the next big thing comes along and takes her out, until then, he will milk this baby, PUN INTENDED

It's not a whole lot different, getting a glimpse of what the female fighters are like, in general, and Ronda in particular, than getting a glimpse of male fighters. How many male fighters have we all said were complete A-holes after watching TUF ? Lots. Heck, even Brian Caraway, ironically, may fall into that category. So, Dana has little reason to fear the backlash against Ronda. It's a formula that works, i suppose, or they'd stop doing TUF seasons.

I don't think the majority of the UFC's demographic is going to relate to female fighters, watching them day-to-day, in a TUF season the way they might relate to the male fighters (i'm assuming the main demographic is males 18-35). It's true for me, I don't really want to watch them on TUF. Anybody else?

C'mon man, you've been around long enough to know better than that. And if debating semantics is what you're looking to do, there are many places that are better suited to do so.
