Julia Budd vs. Ronda Rousey - Cuz Ronda, that's why
While I don't want to take away from another amazing show of takedown skill and athleticism, I think that we saw here that Ronda's entry is a little sloppy. She admitted that she got tagged more than she should, especially given how dominant she was once they did clinch up.
I don't mean to pick nits, as so far this has been the only chink in her armor, and one she easily overcame with a hard nose and a solid chin. But, against a 145er known for her knockout power, like the fantasy match we've all been talking up, it is a problem the Rowdy one will need to address.
I would have put that in the thread specifically about Miss Rousey but it got creepy in there by YMAS standards.
Yeah i kinda wish i could take my name off that. Hope video turns up soon.
Wow, that elbow didn't look good at the end.
Daaaaumn. Gene Lebell must be proud.
Omg that arm! Her striking does need major work, but holy **** that armbar! Damnit what a display of dominant grappling.
"Rousey by Armbar" will now become the dominant message board meme for ladies' MMA.
