I know it's because it was the first episode, but way too much time was spent on fighter's families & back stories...yeah we get it, seems half of you are here because you have families to feed, the other half fight because of various issues stemming from childhood, etc.

It might be do to with editing, but Rhonda's coming off as a bit of a self centered *itch.

Yeah, I was fast-forwarding the family crap. I don't know them and don't care at all about their family situation. I just want to see the fights. Spend less time on family crap and more time on fights.

Yeah, there's a lot of rumors going around that this season is going to cause a double-turn (ie. Ronda becomes the bad guy & Miesha becomes the good guy).

As for Ronda's reaction when Meisha shows up, Ronda thought Dana was using Meisha to replaced her (not Cat) & that's why she got pissed. Apparently Ronda now has a "Hollywood lawyer" (Dana's words), who called making some "bull$h!t" demands & Dana got rather heated about it. Guess Ronda felt like Dana might get a little vindictive about it.
Anyone notice how I spelled Tate's name both ways 'cause I couldn't remember how to spell it?

Unless we're talking about the family of Cody Bollinger, right?

great fight last nite! glad to see shayna got her cocky ass handed to her .. LOL .. i mean, you're in the house for a reason, so saying someone doesn't belong in the same cage as you, or as ronda put it, breathe the same air is kinda cocky ... ronda still coming off as a whiny cry baby ...

Very glad Shayna got her ass beat down. She needs to learn some humility. After the loss, Rhonda should have straight up told her 'no, you're not three times the fighter she is, you've simply been doing it three times longer'. But no, instead she agrees and tries to massage her bruised ego.

And yeah Mike, that chick does hit hard! I'd like to see her throw some kicks...she has legs like tree trunks.

I knew it wasn't going to be an easy fight for Shayna. Rhonda should have used logic instead of petty vindictiveness and went for a much better match up. Waste of a winning coin toss IMO.

The pre-fight talk about "You're the best, you got this easy, etc. etc." was a big coaching mistake. They coached her to underestimate her opponent.
