Ronda will break Bethe's arm off and beat her to death with it. In less than 14 sec.

Bethe has no defense against judo, and can't fight on the ground was what I read. To me that says Ronda will immediately take her down and do her arm bar, making a pretty quick fight (in theory!).

Ronda was an Olympic judo bronze medalist. Her mom was the first person from the U.S. to win the World Judo Championship. The mom has a PhD from U.C. Riverside and comes across as an academic, to watch her speak.

He might be part of the publicity machine.

I think it's possible Ronda is set to become a cultural icon like Muhammad Ali, or even more so.

Fight from last weekend (bloodless version):

The truly best in the world:



I think Ronda is afraid of Cyborg.

You might be right. Ronda can fight at 145. Could be she got down to 135 for a reason. Ronda's public reason seems to be Cyborg can fight at 135 if she stops juicing and she wants a drug-free fight.

I saw this video of an open workout. Very good punching now in addition to her throws and ground fighting. Looks superhuman to me...

I read through some of that. I noticed that instead of just saying she could whip Mayweather, she said she could whip anybody in the World in a no-rules fight. I saw some network talk show on Youtube where she and Mike Tyson were on together. On there, Tyson said he went into the ring thinking of himself as a Greek god, just superhuman and undefeatable. I think that delusional or somewhat delusional confidence is part of it. I think 90% of fights are won before they start. It's hard to picture Rousey ever losing, because of her tenaciousness, skills being equal. Vs. Mayfield, if he got in a punch, he would win. If she was able to take him down without getting hit, she would win. I would pay to watch them fight every night
