Joe Rogan says:
I find it extremely bizarre that all these @UFC 207 promos only focus on Ronda and very little about the champion Amanda Nunes. A fans responds :
You’ve helped contribute to this Ronda hype a lot, so don’t be so surprised. Rogan says: Ronda deserved every bit of hype she got, but Holly KO’ed her,
Miesha choked out Holly, and Amanda smashed Miesha. That should be respected.
This meme has started floating around again now that Ronda is returning to action.
One of the things Ronda is writing on her handwraps is FTA, which stands for F*ck them all.
Her mom told ESPN that: “F — everybody is not a good reason to fight. I think that’s stupid and bulls — .”
“You need something to fight for.”
Ronda says: ‘I am doing this to show everybody who believed in me, my little sister, my nieces and my nephew,
that there’s nothing so great that you can’t overcome it. You can never fall so far that you can’t rise up.’ ”
