Meisha wants to talk about fighting for breadcrumbs and for the love of the sport etc... She's talking about an olympic medal winning Judoka which means Ronda trained all her life and fought for fucking free.

So she's getting to cash in on her lifetime of hard work; Boo fucking hoo. Ronda has earned everything she has. Meisha is just pissed that Ronda is better than her and she knows it.

Glad you mentioned that, being an Olympian is probably one of the toughest and unrewarding sports out there, unless you go beyond the sport (like Phelps, Bolt etc). Even gold medallists are barely making what a normal job does (in fact, with all their expenses, they probably make substantially less). Ronda has MORE than paid her dues.

Interestingly, on that note, how many male professionals bitched about Lesnar? I don't remember that many, I know some said they'd put him in his place, and that he was going to get what's coming to him, but any upcomer gets that treatment anyway. I certainly don't think a single person resented him being fast-tracked, because they recognized what he brought to the company, and by association- them. Tate and the rest of WMMA should seriously appreciate Rousey bringing WMMA into the limelight, because whatever anyone says- she's the one who's done it. Not Dana. She forced his hand by being that much damn better than everyone else.

The only ones I remember talking shit about it were Herring and Mir who coincidentally both got the crap kicked out of them by Brock. Moral of the story? probably not a bright idea to taunt a 290lb monster you are about to get into the cage with...

Taunting an armbaring monster is even more dangerous.

The UFC only has WMMA because Ronda Rousey has the Olympic credentials. Simple as that.

May be they will help her get that Carano fight she wants so bad. You know, purely for the justice of the BW division that is.
