Just not for me and i think given the likes of so many great fighters like anderson i think its so sad that she gets so much undeserved attention.
On a serious note, why is it that you dont think what Rousey does is amazing? She demonstrates Judo and submissions at a higher level than we've ever seen in the UFC before. You can call it a "one trick pony" but no one has stopped that one trick even though they knew it was coming and trained specifically to stop it. I find that kind of dominance enthralling regardless of gender. It seems like you let your personal dislike of her perceived attitude cloud your ability to appreciate how skilled and exciting she it. But to each their own right?
Additionally, how do you feel its undeserved? Out of all the competitors to ever fight in the UFC, she is one of the VERY few who have dedicated such a massive percentage of their life to their martial art. People like Lyoto, Rousey, and McMann are rare breeds in the landscape of mediocre wrestlers/thai boxers who "just bang" for the fun of it and an easy paycheck. I guess i like to consider the context of how each fighter earned their prominence, rather than arbitrarily decide who "deserves" stardom and who doesnt.
