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”

Ronda Rousey Expresses Interest in Fighting Holly Holm After Submitting Zingano

Holly Holm vs Ronda Rousey“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey (add about a million y’s to that for a solid Bruce Buffer impersonation) told Joe Rogen in her post-fight interview that she is interested in taking on UFC newbie Holly Holm.

“Holly Holm is a world champion boxer and I always want to test myself against that level of striking,” Rousey said.

Holm, 33, showed impressive striking and kickboxing technique in her debut earlier tonight against Raquel Pennington, who lost despite having considerably more experience with big-name fighters like Cat Zingano.   Continue reading “Ronda Rousey Expresses Interest in Fighting Holly Holm After Submitting Zingano”

Ronda Rousey Dated a Guy Who Repeatedly Banged His Teeth Into Hers

Ronda Rousey teethAfter being approached by one of TMZ’s professional celebrity-harassers, MMA legend Ronda Rousey explained what she’s looking for in a man. (Self-confidence, Zzz.)

She also launched into a very interesting story about a seemingly perfect guy who she called “catalog man” who turned her off with his unconventional kissing habits.

He would bite my teeth. Like, his teeth would hit my teeth when we kissed. It’s the worst! At first I was like, “Oh, it’s an accident” but then it started happening over and over and over. … He was absolutely perfect in every way except for that but that was just a dealbreaker. You can’t hit your teeth on my teeth!

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. After a mere 16 seconds, she flipped a seemingly lifeless Davis on her back and popped her in the face about 7 times. 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?”

Ronda Rousey Testing Acting Waters With ‘Expendables’ and ‘Fast & Furious’ Franchises

Ronda Rousey showtime fight posePowerhouse judo expert Ronda Rousey has a confirmed, reportedly NOT-small role in The Expendables 3 and another possible job in Fast and Furious 7, but has no plans to slow down her training for filming.

“I’m leaving soon, and I’m very fortunate that there’s going to be Victor Ortiz and Randy Couture and other fighter-type people there, and I’m going to be able to have my camp come and do everything, so I’m not going to break training for it at all,” Rousey told MMAjunkie.

The women’s UFC champ (7-0), scheduled to defend her title from fellow The Ultimate Fighter coach Miesha Tate in late December, joins the likes of wrestlers and MMA fighters turned-actors like “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Randy Couture, Oleg Taktarov and Gina Carano, who appeared in the prior Fast & Furious installment.

How do you think she’ll do? (It’s not her fault that both franchises are unoriginal piles of caca.)

Video: Ronda Rousey Tears Reporter a New Hole Over Inappropriate Question

Can we can agree that best-current-female-MMA-fighter Ronda Rousey is a tough ass badass no nonsense bitch? Like whether that personally translates to you as a good or bad thing, you have to recognize that she could kick your ass while making a latte and checking her Twitter and not break a sweat.

Here she is telling off a reporter for asking her how many times she bangs before a fight. It’s a variation of a question she gets asked all the time. Now, he may have asked because she has, in various interviews, described how sex is a great way to let off steam prior to a match, but that still doesn’t make it “okay.”

Overall he just sounds like a pervert who really needed to be put in his place and she was obliged to help him with that. Hey guy, you’re a far cry from Bob Costas or Bryant Gumbel. STFU.

Brittney Griner To Model Gender-Neutral Nike Clothing

Brittney Griner nikeIn case you were living under a rock on Mars for the past year, Brittney Griner is this incredibly tall awesome woman basketball player who dates other women and wears bow ties. (Check out this ESPN profile of her for more on that.)

She’s the Ronda Rousey of orange leather balls. Or Bill Nye, except instead of teaching science, she’s breaking barriers in sports and changing views on gender roles.

Like Rousey – who convinced MMA president Dana White to allow women in the UFC and is on her way to becoming the sport’s first female millionaire – Griner is very good at what she does and is about to make major bank on her it factor combo of individuality and talent.

Nude Athletes That You’ve Mostly Never Heard Of, It’s The 2012 ESPN Body Issue!

This year’s batch of naked ESPN Body Issue athletes are no different than previous years. They have weird names that are either laughable (Destinee Hooker?) or impossible to pronounce (oh, another “ova” tennis player?) and they’re naked but not naked enough to get anyone lacking imagination off.

You can’t just put a basketball over your Tinie Tempah or turn your legs to the side and call yourself a magician. I know that trick.  Continue reading “Nude Athletes That You’ve Mostly Never Heard Of, It’s The 2012 ESPN Body Issue!”
