Edmund Tarverdyan is still under the fire and flames of internet bashers everywhere. He wasn’t good enough for Ronda as she finally faced tough competition, they say. She wasn’t well-prepared, they say. Most of all – there were no real time adjustments to Ronda’s game plan when Holly Holm continually busted her face.
Luckily for all, Edmund seems to realize this, and vows to improve:
“It was the biggest loss of my career,” Tarverdyan told ESPN. “You know you won’t ever want that to happen again. So what that means is, I’ve got to work harder. Every little thing I’ve got to be honest with and make sure that we’re ready to go.”
“Yeah there was a lot of criticism afterwards about adding a boxing coach,” said Tarverdyan. “MMA is not a boxing game, but Ronda got caught, and we will be taking advice from boxing trainers. I don’t think it’s going to be a situation about adding a boxing coach, it’s about getting more thoughts from boxing trainers.
“I will be speaking to them and getting in the best advice. And if I feel it’s necessary we will bring them in. But besides boxing, even the wrestling, the judo, the grappling aspect of it — just approaching the fight in general, there will be a bit of things that we could add.”
