Just like Rousey, she's got big arms for her sex and size, so what? Now she's gonna gas because she's built like a wrestler?
1.- LOL at none of her mass ill gotten, im guessing that lifting weights also makes your chin grow and your voice to get deeper right? sport BJJ is crowded with PEDs its not even hidden, up until the last worlds there was no testing, and testing right now is just a single event. Look at her history, look at her early interviews, she had a female jawline and a female voice, when she was starting, she was always big, but she was not always muscular.
2.-I have been doing Judo for over 10 years and BJJ for over 3 years, im also bigger than Gabi, VO2 max does not changes linearly with body mass, more muscle doesnt means that your lungs and your blood can carry proportionally more oxygen. HWs do have worse cardio for the simple fact that we move more weight.
3.- You are dellusional if you think that BJJ is as tiring as judo or wrestling which are around 2:1 and 1:2 respectively when it comes to anaerobic and aerobic periods respectively, since BJJ is not a recognized sport in any major amateur organization studies are more narrow, but action is always slower, since there are not stalling calls and actions is on the floor. People who get overly tired in BJJ are the white and blue belts who cant hold a position so they have pretty dynamic and sloppy matches that score tons of points. Blackbelts have matches that are decided by one score or advantages.
4.- Gabi, despite her huge advantage has been swept and THROWN more than once in BJJ matches, and we are talking about MMA which Ronda is a veteran and Gabi is not. She is good, but anyone with 2 eyes can see that Gabi wouldnt be as succcesful in BJJ without that huge advantage, women that she outweights by tons of muscle manage to sweep and throw her.
We would also assume Ronda doesnt cuts any weight and that Gabi will be off the needle for sometime since it will be tested by a decent athletic comission.
