I can understand why people think Rousey is a one trick pony. But lets be honest fighters cant stop gsp's takedowns. As Hioki said after the guida fight: it was my fault I couldnt stop the takedowns.
I am not impressed by rouseys armbars as much as I am impressed by her transitions when setting up the armbar. Her opponents know its coming but she is always gaining a position advantage and going for the submission at the same time.
People also seem to forget how intense Rouseys training was for the Olympics. This gave her a huge edge when starting in MMA. Similar to why wrestlers make an easier transition to Mma then any other martial arts.
