    1) Ok i haven,t seen Holly throw a left uppercut yet. 2) im not seeing many hooks. 3) Did Holly prepare for Valentina's overhand right during training? Holly showed a tiny bit of age, her reflexes were sluggish at times, & showed some flashes of brilliance.

    After Holly beat Rousey, I mentioned that Holly should consider out-sourcing her boxing training, on the side. Holly herself mentioned that she still wants to improve her jab. And She can also learn more Southpaw angles & other things to get even better with her stand up. She took a pic with Zab Judah, He's a resource, network with him to learn more southpaw angles plus a well-timed left uppercut

  5. A very articulate, well spoken professional. Respectful in her comments and demure in her manner. She is a genuine craftsman in her chosen profession. Sweet and lovable before the bell, and a stone cold killer after trigger is pulled. Woe to thee who stands in her way back to the title. You go girl!

  7. Seems like this fight should be perfect but Holly is not that aggressive and
    Shevchenko might decide to not be as aggressive to avoid getting countered and then it might stink, I hope not tho I'm looking forward to it

  9. media are interested in only straight down the road questions. there's no real urgency to be real or riveting. kb is fine at her job and some others too but there's never anything surprising during a scrum. these fighters die a slow death 70 percent of time on average.

    • +baddogonline Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to try to play online psychic detective. I am sure that you have thought long and hard on trying to achieve the perfect profile, combined with in depth insults that would crush my timid and frail psyche. Good try. I can play this game, too. I think what you wrote is really a self portrait of yourself that you are projecting on to me. It has made you angry and bitter, hence you taking time out to insult a person you do not know. It has also left you with no self esteem, you have no sense of self worth. That is why you can not even post any picture for a profile. Now, that makes sense.

    • +baddogonline "Men are attracted to women"

      Umm, At least 10% or more of the male population isn't attracted to women.

      "Very few people care about female fighters"

      I'd venture to say more than a "few people" care…so try speaking for yourself, instead making moronic and erroneous statements.

    • +baddogonline a losing battle is one where a person is not armed with enough facts or is on the morally wrong side of the argument. All you have done, in this, is hurl personal insults and now you have insulted the entire sport. You have offered nothing factual and the more you have argued, the worse you come off. Your argument is the equivalent of a monkey throwing it's feces.

    • +baddogonline Let's review. You started off by asking me if I was a homosexual or just a brainwashed feminist. I replied that I was neither and just wanted to discuss the topic of the video. You then accused me of attacking male sexuality. In reply, I mocked your statement, not you. Next, you then said that I was the victim of an incestuous relationship and that my mother was a downtrodden, welfare slut and that I had no male role model. I replied that you were projecting your own insecurities. Your next foray into this was to again defend what you call male sexuality (instead of plain rude commentary, there is a difference) and called me an asshat, feminist apologist. You also claimed that female MMA is just an oddity, so if a woman is pretty, that is reason enough to be crude (in the spirit of male sexuality). I equated your argument to that of a simian throwing excrement. Please note, outside of my reply where I said you were projecting, I have not personally attacked you, I have merely dismantled your arguments. Now you are back on a anti feminism attack. Sorry to break this to you, but my feminism only goes as far as to treat a woman as an equal human being. No more, no less. In conclusion, since it is all written here, you have been the one from your very first comment to throw personal insults, declared that men have the right to be rude and obnoxious when talking about an attractive woman, and maligned the participants of the sport that the video we are commenting on is about. I hope that this clears this clears things up for you.

  11. I had such a high opinion of Holm. Can't believe she lost that fight. She was probably my favorite female character just because she was so unique. Humble. Didn't listen to music. LIkes peace and quite. Trains a lot. I just like Holly's nature. Shevchenko was some kind of entertainer in Peru. She was on TV doing salsa dancing and stuff.
