Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Is Ronda Rousey the New ‘New Face of Women’s MMA’?

(Props: mmasavvy)

As a competitive judoka, Cali-bred Ronda Rousey earned a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics and a gold medal at the 2007 Pan Am Games. As a budding MMA fighter, she has won all five of her fights (2 pro, 3 amateur) by submission, all in less than a minute. Now training with Team Hayastan in Santa Monica, Rousey makes her Strikeforce debut tomorrow night at Strikeforce Challengers: Gurgel vs. Duarte in Las Vegas, where she’ll face Sarah D’Alelio. So yeah, it’s time for you to start paying attention to this woman.

As she explains in the above video, women’s MMA needs another visible competitor to fill the vacuum left by Gina Carano. (Uh, hello?) Even though people haven’t seen her standup yet, she feels she’s better than D’Alelio on the feet, and if their fight lasts more than a minute, hey, that’s cool too. Is another women’s MMA star about to be born? After the jump, a glimpse of the kind of ferocious ground-work that Ronda could be showing off tomorrow…

(Ronda Rousey vs. Taylor Stratford, 1/7/11)

Holy shit a female with a personality that isn't "Look at my sex appeal"

that, in and of itself, is hot.
XENOPHON- August 11, 2011 at 10:22 am
It's got to be running, wrestling, or getting laid.

She could use a pair of bolt-on's, but besides that this little unit's built for speed.

As for the modeling pics, few. For "professional flexibility" she passed my test.

There isn't really a "Hayastan" in Santa Monica. She's training here with Antoni Hardonk and Henry Akins

Stak >> She's a 145er. And yeah, personailty is important, or everyone would love Jon Fitch.

Here's your Ronda Rousey modeling pics. Just make sure you have "safe search" turned off to get the full effect. Enjoy!

She's no Cyborg, but I'd take her to the ground.

You love fuckn everybody! Here you go with that personality bullshit. This chick looks like she could be pretty sick, nuff said. Oh and how much does she weigh? It said middleweight so she must be like 4 feet cuz her upper body looks pretty big.

ReX13- August 11, 2011 at 8:26 am
really digging rousey -- i think more personality is on display in this video than we've seen from the women's division since .... ever?
kochersam- August 11, 2011 at 8:20 am
