I don't spend every waking moment on this forum either and I've still
seen this exact topic way too many times. To the point where when I saw the topic title I thought it was a bump of a topic from like a month ago that had an almost identical topic title.
Maybe it's just the fact that this is so utterly stupid that seeing it so many times annoys me more than a different topic would. You have to think about more than their hatred for each other before you go theorizing that she'll hold an armbar after the ref breaks it up. People are still just trying to criminalize the UFC's cut of Palhares, who had a history of doing this exact thing and was almost shunned from not just the UFC but all major MMA organizations (until WSOF flipped their stance on him) because of that fact.
To answer your question though, despite how stupid the idea that she'd actually do it is, it would completely depend on her post fight explanation. If she apologized and said she didn't feel the ref breaking it up or was "in the heat of the moment" or something stupid like that she'd probably get a suspension (which is what Palhares got for his first time doing it in the UFC). Fair enough, but it's stupid on her part and would make her look really bad. If she went the Babalu route and said she did it on purpose, yes they would absolutely cut her. Champion or not, Ronda Rousey or not, that's the worst kind of publicity the UFC could get and they wouldn't risk it for anybody. They cut Babalu within a week for it so they'd certainly cut anybody else. It's just not something they can allow to go unpunished.
