    Another person who is interested actually very interested in making the jump to MMA. She even believes she has the athletic tools to make a run at the top. Kaillie Humphries is a big fan of the UFC and has been one for sometime. She has a gold medal in the bobsled but she also has other athletic pursuits.

    Not completely sure she hinted at doing something? She is rather unimpressed "GSP joke here" at Ronda's competition.

    Sure why not? At this rate, the UFC will soon have to pulling women bums off the street to continue feeding Ronda's appetite for thirty-second destructions, so it might as well find some bobsled medalist to feed her.

    I can hear Rogan now: "Dana, is this the highest caliber Olympic face-off in the UFC? Have we ever had a gold medalist going to war against a bronze medalist? Should Ronda be worried at this step up in her competition?"

    This is what WMMA needs...more high level athletes like Ronda participating.

    So what is "athlete" ranking according to the experts here on Sherdog?

    Are only football players, soccer players, basketball players "A-level"?

    Or does bobsledding count as "A-level" too?

    That's the perfect photo for WMMA. You can hold a UFC belt and not even have a fight under your own belt.

    Nothing against her or her accomplishments,but i don't know how sitting in a snowwagon helps her in anything related to mma.Do they even train?

    I mean,do you have to be explosive to sit in a vehicle and let it slide?

  17. She can't look any worse than anyone else who has faced Ronda. They could probably throw her in the cage with Ronda tomorrow and the casual fans wouldn't know if she was a legit fighter or not. The UFC could rank her at #4 and push her as an Olympic Gold medalist who is Ronda's biggest challenge to date.

    Bobsledding is pure power...speed and strength make those explosive sprinting starts before the sliding begins. Not sure if the co-ordination needs to be as high in that sport as the others you just mentioned, but pure raw physical ability to be a bobsledder for a competitive country at the olympic level has to be extremely high.

    Hahaha ! Ain't it the truth. Ronda's fan base doesn't care. Give a woman a gold medal from a Wheaties box and it's all the same. Thirty seconds later they'll be wanting her to take on Fedor.
