Holly Holm’s upset at UFC 193 wasn’t just a win, it was a wrecking of Ronda Rousey’s world. It was the equivalent of throwing a cold glass of water on the shared superstar dreams of Rousey and UFC president Dana White.
Fighters suffer big losses on a fairly regular basis in the UFC; it happens and the good ones always bounce back. But this time was different.Read More DIGG THIS

Ronda Rousey needed to get knocked out, to put it bluntly. She had let all the hype go to her head and was recently acting like a cross between a brat and a bully.
Enter Holly Holm. She came into this fight as a 14-1 underdog and the No. 7 fighter in the division – and she annihilated Rousey from the opening bell until her lights-out kick.
Holm beat Rousey so ridiculously bad that Dana White was in full defensive mode in the post fight press conference. His cash cow didn’t just get caught with a lucky punch, she got torn apart in the ring to the point she literally looked like a drunk throwing punches. That’s not good for business.Read More DIGG THIS

Nobody gave Holly Holm much of a chance. She came into the fight as much as a 20-to-1 underdog. And then, she took less than six minutes to shock the world as she landed a second-round head kick knockout over Ronda Rousey to cap off UFC 193.

Stop me if you’ve heard this song and dance before: Ronda Rousey has an upcoming pay-per-view match and her opponent is hyped up to be her toughest challenge ever. However, a few seconds into the fight, Rousey wins an uncompetitive mismatch.
That exact scenario is going to happen again at UFC 193. The Ronda Rousey problem for Dana White is simple: there’s not a 135-pound woman in the world that can beat her or even give her a serious fight.Read More DIGG THIS

At the risk of incurring her wrath myself, I will say that I’ve always found AnnMaria De Mars’ relationship with the MMA media, her daughter, and her daughter’s opponents to be a little…strange. I’m not saying she craves the attention, necessarily, but she certainly doesn’t seem to deflect it. She’s intense, is I guess the best way to put it.
Regardless, it would appear that De Mars maintains a closer eye on her cub than most parents would, especially when said cub is a 28-year-old uber badass and one of the most popular feminist icons on the planet. In fact, the only person in Rousey’s life who you could argue might have more say in her decision making process than her mother is Edmond Tarverdyan, Ronda’s longtime coach and another person who I personally find to be a bit grating.
So when Mama Rousey was recently asked to give her opinion on Tarverdyan, you would probably expect there to be a little bit of tension between them, to put it simply. What you probably wouldn’t expect is for De Mars to unleash the mother of all rants (no pun intended) on the Glendale Fighting Club owner, questioning everything from his abilities as a coach to the quality of his character.

Ronda Rousey, you familiar with her? The armbars, the hip tosses, the Olympic medals and all that stuff? Well, if you’re one of the three people on this planet who is not familiar with the women’s bantamweight champion by now, the UFC would like to offer you a 90-second recap of her life via this new promo for UFC 193.
Starring none other than the champ’s little sister, Julia De Mars, as 17-year-old, judo-tossing Ronda and her mother, AnnMaria, as well, her mother, “Revolution” would easily the most poignant UFC ad of all time if it wasn’t for that Nick Diaz-Office Space mashup some genius fanboy created for UFC 143. And hey, the promo even manages to squeeze in a few frames of Rousey’s UFC 193 opponent, Holly Holm! Good for you, Holly!
UFC 193: The Legend of Ronda Rousey premieres on November 15, 2015 at the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.Read More DIGG THIS

Despite our bitter, heated, and third adjective protests, it appears that studio executives will be steamrolling ahead with a remake of the beloved 1989 classic, Roadhouse, with women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey starring in the titular role of “Dalton Roadhouse” (don’t fact-check that) originally played by Patrick Swayze.
But with only one key role filled, we figured we might as well do our part to ensure that this movie sucks as little as possible — what with us being the pulse of the MMA-movie world and all all. You know what this means: It’s dream-casting time.Read More DIGG THIS
