    Stumbled across this Gary Stretch produced Netflix documentary on Ronda Rousey last night. Often wondered where he ended up after the loss to Eubank Snr

    Good ole Gary Stretch the male model who dated glam celebs, got the Eubank fight on the strength of that really.

    Although he did knock out 85-0 George Collins in the amateurs in 30secs and a big thing was made of that.

    Went to the movies.

    Stretch....fgt about him. He made the right moves. I liked him as a fighter too although looking back I was probably influenced to a certain degree by the powers that be.

    Not sure if he still lives in Thailand but I heard a few stories about when he did.

    Apparently some years back he got into a fight with ex Judo legend Brian Jacks and he got absolutely splattered. Stretch isn't meant to be the nicest of blokes with a drink in him...

    Best part is that he never taught her how to move her head.

    Rousey was unfortunate to end up with such a ****ty coach. The dude is a fraud.

    i wouldn’t be too hard on the guy they ALL were victims getting too caught up in Ronda’s hype.. Ring magazine had put her on the cover and UFC fans were actually put out the idea that she could beat the males in the 135 division. Holly Holm crashed that hype but the way Amanda Nunes battered her I knew she wasn’t coming back for a while.

    Seems like he ruined quite a few fighters careers.

    This reminded me of Jirov vs Toney. Jirov was throwing 100 punches per round and all his corner could tell him is to throw more punches :boxing1:facepalm:
