Reporter Antagonizes Ronda Rousey, Gets Slammed

Aaron Tru, a reporter who interviews MMA fighters and is specifically notorious for “pissing off” women in the sport, recently got taken down by THE woman, Ronda Rousey.

“I don’t think you have as much strength and can compete with a man,” Tru said, right before getting his ribcage busted and wincing in pain.

It was definitely set-up, along with the time he got choked out by Cyborg (below), but it’s still amazing to see a big guy like him easily thrown by someone much smaller than him.

I’m not of the opinion that Tru is a chauvinist. He’s 100% in on the joke…

Like MMA’s own Steve-O, putting himself through hell for our enjoyment.  Continue reading “Reporter Antagonizes Ronda Rousey, Gets Slammed”

No Armbar Needed: Ronda Rousey DECIMATES Alexis Davis in 16 Seconds for Tenth Straight Win … Can Anyone Beat Her?

Ronda Rousey Alexis Davis fight gif UFC 175Ronda Rousey is a powerhouse, a beast and arguably the most exciting fighter to watch in either men or women’s MMA. She’s also so far ahead of her competition that only one of her ten fights has ever gone past the first round. Her latest bout against #2 seed Alexis Davis was surprisingly short, even for a Rousey fight.

The punishment she doled out was already too much for the refs to stomach, and it was over.

I’m starting to think the only way to make the fights fair is if Ronda’s opponents are on steroids, or if Ronda herself is horribly injured or plastered out of her mind. Seriously, I’d put $1000 on drunk Ronda over sober whoever on steroids. It still wouldn’t be a contest.

So far, only Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche have come even remotely close to defeating Ronda. People still think early women’s MMA trailblazer-turned actress Gina Carano could pull a win out of the bag against her, but I’m a firm believer that the only woman who stands a chance is the one who brutally defeated Carano in 2009.  Continue reading “No Armbar Needed: Ronda Rousey DECIMATES Alexis Davis in 16 Seconds for Tenth Straight Win … Can Anyone Beat Her?”

Video: Aimee Mann – “Charmer” Feat. Laura Linney

Aimee Mann has been making music for at least 29 years, before I was born, perhaps before you were born as well. Her latest video for the single “Charmer” focuses on a topic that was relevant in 1982 and still is now – robots!

Academy Award-nominated Laura Linney plays a mail-order cyborg version of Mann, all bespeckled and stiff-armed. Learning chords never looked so fun.  Continue reading “Video: Aimee Mann – “Charmer” Feat. Laura Linney”
