    Rousey doesn't have competition there due to her being so much stronger than most women in her weight class. I wanted Julie to win, she looked like she could give Rousey some problems. Tate will just get subbed again.

    She executes out of necessity..She has to do so to get the arm bar..She wants no part of trading blows at all...If it always goes where she ''needs it'' she should be good..If/when it does not, we will see...
    She also treats it like a Judo match. She gets in, trips/throws, then arm bars. The reason she is so good at this arm bar is b/c in Judo, when you get an opponent to the ground, you basically have 3-5 seconds to get to mount, side control, or the sub (unlike bjj where you have more time to work). That is why it happens so quick.

    If ronda did fight cyborg, I see it going badly for her. Cyborg makes a lot of men look unathletic, in comparison.

    Rousey is a tough fighter, I think she has a legit shot at beating cyborg now, she executes without fear and with ruthless agression and precision. She wants it she gets it, pure and simple. I'm not sure cyborg's strength isn't something she deals with in the gym everyday either. It all depends on how hard she goes at it with her male training partners. I think most ladies in MMA probably gets pampered a bit by their male training partners. Rhonda seems like she could hang with hers and even tap a few of them out. So the cyborg fight might not be the "murder" people think it would be. But then again, Cyborg probably only trains with strong Brazillian fighters and does the same thing in the gym. I think it would be the super fight WMMA needs to break into the UFC or begin the process of the UFC aquiring the talent. Maybe the UFC buys Invicta, honestly I'd love to see a Strikeforce/Bellator Merger. With Bellator taking over production, no more murillo, pat, and frank announcing, ok keep frank or pat maybe....But right now Rhonda's biggest threats are fighting in Bellator. Rin Nakai is still in Japan, and I seriously doubt she can make 135, but if she could that would be a great fight as well, plus she's pretty hot in her own right........






    On a side note: Jacare Souza is a fucking beast! Ho Ly Shit! I want to see him fight for the title!

    Rhonda stated she didnt want to fight Cyborg just yet,that was two fights ago,so shes probably changed her tune. But at a time she knew she wasnt ready for that fight and admitted it.

    Cyborg set MMA back years because of her testing positive.

    Back to the fight, glad Rhonda won, big fan,and its best for the sport right now.

    Rousey moved down to Bantamweight to avoid fighting Cyborg. Whether you want to believe it or not, she was undefeated at Featherweight, and for some reason when she reaches the top of the pile, she switches to Bantam? I don't think she actually wants any part of Cyborg, and I don't blame her.

    Apparently she was asked to leave the Strikeforce event today, because she is still suspended. And since they did away with her weightclass, she wants to be released from her contract. Then she teased that she might show up at an Invicta Event instead.
