SHE GOT GAME
Which female athletes have shown an ability to play with the boys?
Ronda Rousey thinks she can beat UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
Not in a race.
Not at a surfing contest.
Not in a who-can-hit-the-most-armbars-in-one-minute competition.
Rousey thinks she can beat Velasquez — the baddest man on the planet — in a fight. At MMA.
“In any given moment, under the right circumstance, I think it is possible,” Rousey told the Spanish-language newspaper Hoy (translated by Yahoo). “You cannot tell me that it is physically impossible. It is possible that in any given moment that I could beat him. I simply believe in my possibilities.”
Let’s hope something got lost in translation.
Never mind that Rousey, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion, gives up around 100 pounds — or about one whole Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson — to Velasquez. Never mind that Velasquez is, you know, a trained fighter who is arguably the greatest UFC heavyweight of all time. Never mind that Rousey would have a difficult time beating any man who actually is her weight.
Ronda thinks she’s capable of anything. And maybe after the last year it’s hard to blame her. Since January, Rousey has debuted in the UFC, become one of the most popular fighters in the world, landed on the cover of ESPN The Magazine and been cast in two blockbuster movies — “Fast & Furious 7” and “The Expendables 3”.
Even before any of that, Rousey was undefeated without so much as a challenge. No woman has ever taken her past the first round. And prior to MMA, the 26-year-old was an Olympic bronze medalist in judo — the first woman from the U.S. to ever medal in the sport.
Ronda Rousey is one of the most incredible athletes on the face of the Earth — man or woman. But beating Velasquez? The guy who just ran roughshod over Junior dos Santos for almost five rounds? That’s a tough sell.
Unless of course Velasquez refuses to hit a woman. In which case, look for a first-round armbar finish.
First of all! What kind of crack is Ronda Rousey smoking? Whatever it is it seems like the writer of this article is smoking the same kind!
1. By no means is Cain the baddest man on the planet!
2. By no means is he arguably the greatest heavyweight champion of all time! He isn’t even in the running for that!
That still belongs to Fedor!
#1 – Fedor Emelianenko
Record: 31-4, 1 NC
Birthplace: Rubizhne, Ukraine
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Record: 33-6-1, 1 NC
That’s just to name a few!
What about Bas Rutten Cro Cop, Wanderlei Silva!
How can Cain 9-0 even be considered!
How bout Dan Severn! 101-19, 7 draws
Ok now back to Ronda’s crack dream!
First of all the fight would never happen because there is no Octagon big enough for Ronda & Cain and & Ronda’s ego for even saying this!
I hope Miesha tears her up and shuts her up!!
First off she’s using Cain as an example because he is the Current Heavyweight champ! What she is saying is of the planets align she can beat anyone!
The Current UFC Heavyweight Division tops out at 275lbs and Ronda’s division is 135lbs
Now lets say for example Cain can’t punch or kick Ronda because one full force shot will end her career and put her on life support!
Lets say for example they don’t grapple because one full force slam from a heavyweight with him landing on her will send her to the ICU and probably sever her spine!
Lets say for example they start on their knees!
Her wrestling an over 225lb fighter lets say she gets on top somehow because a 250lb fighter just lying on top of a 135lb girl is dead weight enough to immobilize her! Let alone him fighting back and applying grappling (Jiu Jitsu) techniques!
If she gets on top of him at 135lbs that’s like having a bare bones barbell on your chest! He will fling her halfway across the ring the second she gets on top!
The only way she will she can possibly win is: on the Fourth of July, between 3:55 and 4 PM during a hailstorm with a stampede of wild elephants running through his house with one baby zebra!
Ronda needs to keep fighting the little boys in the new baby divisions of the UFC and stop thinking she can hang with the big boys! Because its not going to happen!
Wait a min she can have Sex with Cain in the cowgirl position (she’s on top) and when he’s about to cum; sucker punch him with a pair of brass knuckles! There you Ronda wins!
Maybe that’s what she was talking about? If not she’s definitely smoking crack!!
WAKE UP! Give up your delusions and face your fear! Stop running from Cyborg! She will crush you! Ronda has fought in Cristiane Cyborg Justino’s featherweight division before! But she has lowered weight and entered the UFC to hide from Cyborg and refuses to fight her!
It’s amazing to me that Rhonda is talking about her beating Cain. Who’s a heavyweight man. But she won’t go to a weight where she has fought other fights at. And challenge the best female fighter in the world. Not being cocky. But I believe that this Being one athlete at the top And many agree. Yet she will put cains name in her mouth,and not mine. She is a actress after all. Talking about a fantasy fight. When there’s a super fight right in front of her. Yet she talks about fantasy.
Before I get my balls busted lets get something straight! I used to like Ronda before she started opening her mouth and her ego blew the fuck up!
I hope Miesha destroys her and puts her ego in check! Then I will probably like her again!
