The Ronda Rousey Problem: Why the Breaking Point is Near

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.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Is Not A Fan of Edmond Tarverdyan [VIDEO]


(“Good…goooood….let the hate flow through you.” via Getty)

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.

This New Ronda Rousey Promo Is So Ronda Rousey It’s Not Even Ronda (Rousey)

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.

Dream-Casting the Upcoming, Female-Centric Road House Reboot, Starring Ronda Rousey

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.

FilmPotato: Ronda Rousey to Star in Gender-Swapped Reboot of Road House


(For some reason I don’t see this scene carrying as much dramatic weight with a cast of all women.)

It appears that Ronda Rousey‘s Hollywood aspirations know no limits, Nation. In addition to her recent roles in Entourage, Fast and Furious 7, The Expendables 3, and a starring role in an upcoming biopic based on her autobiography, it appears that Rousey has also landed the lead in a gender-swapped remake of the Patrick Swayze classic, Roadhouse.

Variety has the scoop:

Sources say MGM is currently meeting with writers to pen the script with with no shortage of scribes getting in line for the opportunity to do so. Production set to begin in 2016.

Rousey thought the idea of starring in a remake was a great idea but wanted to be respectful when pursuing the project. Sources say Rousey recently reached out to Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi, to ask for her blessing to star in the remake, which insiders say Niemi gladly gave.

And with all due respect to Ms. Rousey, this is f*cking tragic.

Interview: UFC Champ TJ Dillashaw “Could Absolutely Take Ronda Rousey”


(via Getty.)

Team Alpha Male’s TJ Dillashaw has had perhaps one of the quickest and most unexpected rises to greatness in the sport’s history. In just over a year, he has gone from the guy that P4P king Renan Barao was going to eat for lunch to the UFC’s reigning bantamweight champion and a top pound-for-pounder in his own right. On the heels of a vicious shellacking of Barao in their UFC on FOX 16 rematch, there’s really only one challenge left for Dillashaw to face: Women’s Bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey.

Yep, we’re talking man vs. woman fights again, it seems.

Dillashaw recently sat down with our partners at MadeMan for a lengthy interview, dishing on everything from how to get six-pack abs how he would take down a heavyweight in a street fight. Of course, with Ronda Rousey being the talk of the town these days, Dillashaw was eventually asked how he’d see himself fairing in a hypothetical fight against “Rowdy.” His answer was about as good as you could hope for.

It wouldn’t be much of a fight?
Umm… of course. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt. But it’s one of those things where I’m going to be the bad guy no matter what if it happens. You know? I’d be an asshole for knocking her out or I’d be looked down upon for losing. So it’s a lose-lose situation, but yeah, I mean, I definitely see myself winning that fight very, in my mind, easily.

Yeah, but could he do it while sporting an evening gown and six inch heels? These are the kind of questions we should really be devoting numerous articles to, Nation.

Head over to MadeMan for the entire interview.

The First SFW Trailer for Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded Has Arrived

Having just finished watching the first trailer for Burning Angel’s much talked-about Ronda Rousey porn parody, Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded, I am irate, Nation. Not because it contains absolutely zero nudity, and not because of any personal bias I have against star Kleio Valentien since she slapped that restraining order on me, but because my long and detailed list of spot-on casting suggestions for the project was completely, inexplicably ignored.

It’s as if ArouseMe director Joanna Angel didn’t appreciate or even take notice of the countless hours I clearly spent researching and drafting up that list, requiring no less than three recuperative naps in the process. Did they think I was only after a few extra clicks on a once mid-tier MMA blog, and not auditioning for a position in the multi-billion dollar industry that is porn casting? This was supposed to be *my* moment, god dammit! This was my chance to be a somebody!! (*kicks can*)

All that said, I’m sure there are a handful of you who’d still like to see the trailer for Ronda ArouseMe regardless of the fact that it took a steaming dump on my dreams, so check it out after the jump.

Ronda Rousey Announces on Good Morning America That She Will Be Fighting Holly Holm Next at UFC 195

For a while there, it seemed as if we were all but destined to see Ronda Rousey take on her arch-rival not named Cyborg for a third time following their respective wins over Bethe Correia and Jessica Eye, but today brings word of a fight many of us probably didn’t see coming.

During an appearance on Good Morning America earlier today, Rousey herself made the announcement that her next title defense won’t be against Miesha Tate, nor will it be against Cyborg, but against former pro boxer/kickboxer turned undefeated MMA fighter Holly Holm, at UFC 195. Or to put it another way: The lamb has passed through the gate. It has come to the killing floor. Its blind eyes see nothing of the horrors to come.
