    She's a real athlete. I wouldn't be surprised if the victim never fights again. What a mismatch.

    I think she could beat Cyborg with some experience, seasoning (and plenty of sauce).

    Ronda looked awesome.

    Another former Judo Olympian/current Jimmy Pedro/SYT student is doing well in MMA also: Rick Hawn.

    What the hell happened to that girl? Did she get KOed by the takedown or did she get her arm broken and pass out or what? She looked completely out when the ref broke them up.

    He does. 26 seconds in.

    YouTube- Ronda Rousey vs Brandon Sotomayor Wrestling practice at S.K. Golden Boys 2010.mov

    That gi she used to wear really doesn't do her justice. I wonder if she'd have become more famous by now if she'd made it as a wrestler instead of in judo.

    Judogi are rarely flattering for females. Ronda is set to be one of the most decorated female Judoka in the US if she keeps achieving the way she does. MMA will just be a great outlet for her and possibly a way to earn some extra cash to fund her Olympic runs. Dan Henderson did just that in Pride to chase his Olympic dream.

    Rick is quite possibly one of my favorite Judoka. A great guy with a great attitude and was a good Judoka. I hope he does well.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    In addition to her athletic achievements, she's a good looking young lady and seems to have a sparkling, telegenic personality. She could be a star.

    That video of her wrestling sucks, however. Someone needs to cool it with the editing and annoying music.

    Kyra Gracie is really good I have heard rumors about her entering the MMA fights as well, woman pick up these sports very quick and there technique becomes impressive faster then most men. I watched a 120 pound girl arm the **** out a 200 pound dude last thursday. I'm all for it
