Ronda Rousey Tells It Like It Is
Rousey has successfully defended her UFC Bantamweight Belt Against Liz Carmouche in a spectacular arm bar Feb 23, 2013. More than her strength and skill her mind and honesty make her a real woman in my book.
During a recent interview with EsNews she shared her experience during the 2008 Olympics. She also talked about swimmer Michael Phelps segregating himself from other Olympic athletes. She contrasted Phelps to Kobe Bryant whom she described as nicer, “Michael Phelps needed his own private section of the club to be, like, private for him. These NBA players over here are a bigger deal than this guy, and they’re all hanging out with us. Hello, we’re your teammates. We’re not a bunch of groupies. Come hang out with us. Who the hell are you?”
During the 2012 ESPY Awards Ronda criticized Kim Kardashian as a poor example for younger girls, “You know what, I would beat the crap out of Kim Kardashian actually. Any girl who is famous and idolized because she made a sex video with some guy and that’s all that you’re known for, ‘Oh, I got my fame for sucking [expletive],’ I think it’s pretty stupid, sorry, but it’s true.”
Rousey summarized what media, TV networks and fans have been doing, “Why is everyone slipping it under the carpet now? She’s selling Sketchers to 13-year-olds,” Rousey added. “I don’t want some girl, whose entire fame is based on a sex video, to be selling Sketchers to my little sister. Girls like Kim Kardashian are being pushed in my little sister’s face, and it’s just not healthy. She shouldn’t need to have role models like this, and that’s why I’m doing stuff like ESPN Body because someone needs to do it.” Comments on the video have asked for an octagon fight between Rousey and Kim Kardashian’s partner Kanye West.
Rousey should be asked her thoughts on Floyd Mayweather Jr. getting convicted for battery domestic violence charge. ESPN.com reported, “The case stemmed from a hair-pulling, punching and arm-twisting argument with his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris while two of their children watched in September 2010.” It was Mayweather’s only conviction among many charges of domestic abuse from his past girl friends and other women with whom he’s fathered children.
I’m a huge boxing fan but MMA fighters are just far more versatile including kickboxing, wrestling, jiu jitsu and in Ronda’s case Olympic level Judo in their game. Realistically as decorated a boxer as he is Floyd Money Mayweather Jr. will just get torn apart by Ronda Rousey in the octagon. We’ve already seen the experiment where former Heavy Weight Champ James ‘Lights Out’ Toney got ground and pounded before UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture mercifully choked him out.
I can imagine Ronda getting a take down on the former WBC Welterweight Champion Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather in less than a minute. His right elbow would be twisted so badly beyond recognition. And then go for the ground on pound on his face. Rousey is one woman Mayweather will never mess with.
