I would simply state this: It never stopped Dana from riding his name to make a buck.
Clearly that's what he's attempting to do with Rousey.
Olympic Medal >>>>> any UFC belt
Hmm....but how does it compare to a bronze in ADCC?
Furthermore, wouldn't you agree that winning a PROFESSIONAL title is a greater accomplishment than winning an amatuer one?
BTW, I'm pretty sure Rousey finished 4th in the olympics but received a bronze because Judo offers 2 per class (check me if I'm wrong).
Now, this isn't a slam in any way on Rousey, just offering some perspective.
Both fighters came into their sport when there was a MAJOR talent disparity so comparing the competition meh to me.
I personally think guys like Tito, Randy, Kerr, Severn, Coleman, and Randleman changed the sport. They broke away from the submission game and showed that wrestlers with body control could stay in the guard and avoid submissions while delivering a beating to their opponents. When and if Ronda becomes transcendent in that way, I'll jump on board.
