Having seen some of the TUF recap it seems like Rousey wouldn't have half as bad a rap as she has here if it weren't for Edmond
A lot of the stuff she does is psychological. Gamesmanship. I like that personally. But Edmond seemed to get offended at absolutely everything haha. And everyone gets dragged into his stuff. It may have rubbed off on Rousey slightly (though imo she's a bit too emotionally attached to the fighters.)
Nah, Ronda pretty much screwed up goint into the first fight.
1. She picks everybodys favorite Bazler to fight Miesha friend to get at Miesha.
2. She storms into gym and kicking Team Tate trying to establish that here Team owns them.
I have nothing against those tactics. Its a competition and you try to win. So psychological warfare is fair game...but Rondas Plan backfired.
Her pick got beaten badly by a rookie. Ronda coundnt handle the lost and trys to paint Miesha in a bad light and uses some BS like "oh she celebrated that her fighter (and good friend) won a fight".
And then she is angry Tate picked the guy who was injured.
Sure, Edmond being a nut doesnt help either.
But you never go full Nick Diaz. And Ronda did it in one episode.
I dont like Tate and those pranks are childish (ok, "Edmond Roussey" was hilarious), but she looks like a saint being next to Ronda.
