UFC 148 Quote: Ronda Rousey Says Anderson Silva 'Is Going To Destroy' Chael Sonnen - Bloody Elbow (http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/7/7/3142983/ufc-148-quote-ronda-rousey-anderson-silva-vs-chael-sonnen)


Strikeforce women's champion and former Team USA Olympic Judoka Ronda Rousey is an admirer of UFC Middleweight Chael Sonnen's approach to hyping fights. Her admiration grew in part out of her frustration with the lack of drama in women's MMA.

Rousey talked to Bleacher Report about it:

"Before I came along it seemed like a Miss America pageant to me. Like 'oh yes, I want world peace and this girl is very nice and the other day we sat down and brushed each other's hair. We were going to watch the Fifth Element but Ronda took the DVD so we were forced to watch not a good movie.' It was just so boring,"

"So I looked at what all the guys were doing and what was working. Chael's a good example. The way that he fights is not the most exciting ever so he found a way to supplement that. If I can be an exciting fighter and do all these other things then everything is going to take off.

That doesn't mean she thinks Sonnen's approach to hyping tonight's UFC 148 bout against Anderson Silva is a wise approach:

"I think that Anderson Silva pissed off and healthy is going to destroy Chael...I think a lot of questions will be answered in this fight. I'm excited and so is everyone else."

surprised to hear her say that given the training history between sonnen and the cesar gracie gym.

indeed. though people don't usually say that about the folks that come to their camp. i hadn't been following it closely, did sonnen stop doing his occasional workouts with them?

Not sure, but Rousey is surprisingly savy for a relatively newcomer to the sport.
