For those of you who are into combat sports, specifically boxing or UFC, there was a flurry of new Champions and Titles changing hands.
In a recent Title defense, Amanda Nunes faced off squared off with previous Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey. Nunes tagged Ronda with fury and ended the match 48 seconds into Round 1, wow...
Before this fight, Ronda took a sabbactical from taking a beating from the "Preacher's Daughter" Holly Holm. (Punch, miss, drops to knee, ops... Punch, connects, dazed, head kick, done...)
In the men's divisions, Chris Weidman took the title from Anderson Silva, then broke Silva's shin bone on the rematch, and then Chris himself gets served up by Luke Rockhold, and Luke to Bisping.
Looking at Anderson Silva's career, he lost twice to Weidman, then tested positive for banned substances fighting Diaz, and lost to Bisping then Cormier. Many say Anderson should stay down out of it and just quit after a row of successive defeats like that.
1) Should Ronda quit right now?
2) Should anyone in similar circumstances quit?
1) She's got other options like going into Hollywood full-time or other business ventures she's got going on. There's really no need to take punches and kicks to the face and embarrass yourself on HBO PPV when the Knock Out is done by the opponent and the Smack Talk is done by the one getting floored.
2) There are times in life where it's better to quit and convert to cash position and try again or cash out and try another venture than to keep using the same broken strategy hoping for a win.
