    Top it off I bet she would be a load for Ronda to take down. Its not like this girl has not been training all her life. I am willing to bet she has been working out behind the scenes for longer then people think in MMA? This sounds like something she is not doing completely out of nothing. Who knows she may have has a past history in Martial Arts we only know her for the bobsled who knows she may have studied a martial art at one time or another?

    At 30 I can see her career panning out similar to DC. She'll run through competition, probably without losing a round, and then lose to Ronda Rousey.

    She'd be more explosive than 98% of the WBW div.

    Are you trolling? You realize the race starts with them pushing the sled and this is where the race is won or lost. They just have to not screw up in the steering. All about the explosive burst.

    I was just looking at that she is an inch taller then Ronda and she carries a lot more muscle. It would be interesting to see how she could cut that much weight she is training with for sure.

    No doubt she's seen what passes for a contender in WMMA and figures she can fight at least that well.

    That body issue photo of her is pretty complimentary.

    It's hard to be accepted in to teh training program. YOu have to have sets of strength, I'm not sure for women, but for men they needs to power clean or clean almost two times body weight. Squat more then 2.5 bodyweight, and also have a 30m time below 3.7 seconds. It is more for fast twitch explosive athletes.

    Which leads me to think she would be okay, but the biggest things against her is the psychology of fighting, being in that element, most importantly the ability to take a punch and not panic. Second is Cardio, because the nature of her sport is not cardio specific, so she will sacrifice her current high level strength and power to get that cardio up and be competitive.

    Her diving skills should help her against Ronda.

    Hopefully some high level female golfer's make the transition to fight Ronda soon. So we can watch the beautiful technical exchanges that is female mma.

    to make it fair i think the female golfer should be allowed to bring a golf club in the cage with her

    It's WMMA. All she has to do is beat one fighter with a losing record and she'll probably be ranked in the top 10. Two and she's in title contention.
