    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    Rhonda Rousey trained at Jimmy Pedro's place when she was training for the Olympics. Judo is in her blood, her mom was a judoka as well.

    Met her briefly when she was in town, she's one kickass fighter. I'm psyched to see her fight MMA.

    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    I posted a thread on her a while back. She's making waves largely due to her very short fights, her looks and her self promotion. She kick ass, but is she good for the sport? I think so, but not everyone does.

    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    the clips i saw were very short because she isnt playing around, she goes for the takedown, and gets position for the arm bar and BAM fight over.

    I listened to her on the Joe Rogan podcast. She sounds legit.

    She has won all of her professional AND amateur fights by armbar, actually. Her longest fight was her title fight with Miesha Tate and it didn't last the full first round, and Tate's arm was destroyed. I'm really looking forward to seeing Rousey vs. Kaufman and then Rousey vs. Coenen (assuming they let her back into Strikeforce) because they are bound to be awesome!

    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    From what I have heard, people that don't like Rousey just think that she hadn't fought much to be given a title shot. And that because she is too new, it was too soon to start calling her the new face of women's MMA.

    I have not heard anything negative about her actual skills or personality.

    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    The kid has one hell of a pedigree. Mom was a World Judo Champion, Ronda is an Olympic Medalist in Judo, she's been training since she was in diapers, been arm barring people since she wore Garanimals, and she's an MMA World Bantamweight Champion. (Holy Cow!)

    Some don't like her because she's outspoken, some point out that's she's not a great striker, that she has weak competition, that she's never had a long fight. I find her so damn inspiring I can hardly stand it. I love watching this kid fight. I hope she has a long, great career.

    There was an odd moment on last Friday's The Ultimate Fighter TV show. The poor boys didn't quite know what to do with a pretty gal in their house that could whoop their butts. I found this pretty funny!

    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    Rhonda Rousey is definetely the real deal. If you saw her on The Ultimate Fighter Live, she nearly broke Dominick Cruz's ribs. An up and coming female mixed martial artist I would like to see fight again soon is Miesha Tate. I know she lost the title to Rousey, but she still has a lot of potential.

    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    One of my judo coaches was just telling me that he used to train at the same club with Rhonda Rousey, before she got involved in MMA. According to him "she's about 30 pounds lighter than I am, but about twice as strong as I am."

    Because she had muscles like a 15 year old boy? I dont think you have seen a roided up woman before. Try to run a picture search for female bodybuilder.

    Re: Rhonda Rousey?

    Compared to the other women in the sport, yes she's a man beast.

    She roided, test results confirmed that. It's not speculation like it was before her fight with Carano. Different goals of steroids in MMA than in bodybuilding and different training protocols as well. A roided bodybuilder is only going to train as much as possible for muscle hypertrohpy (size), whereas an MMA fighter is going to use them to get stronger and more cut without moving up a weight class. Doesn't change the advantage though.

    Dana White says that Rousey is in a league of her own.

    Also, gets a little into the reason why UFC won't have women's fights in the near future (short story not big enough talent pool yet).
