    Do you remember when Ronda considered herself, and wanted others to call her "THE Bantamweight Champion of the world" NOT "The women's Bantamweight champion of the world" ? I remember Dana even mentioning it back when the hype was all on Ronda, and I think Rogan was all into that as well if I can recall properly.

    Did that mean she was to fight male bantamweights? Or the UFC just decided to forget there was a male bantamweight champion and ronda wanted to be known as the only bantamweight champ of the world? I never understood that. It just seemed like pure arrogance to me. Was she honestly that arrogant?? Would like to know if anyone else remembers this.

    I think she truly believed that she could beat men in her weight class. She was very, very wrong.

    When you talk shit so much, you better not lose because this is what happen, look at the Connor and Rockhold gifs in every post. For fuck sake people in his camp were saying Ronda could beat top guys in the ufc

    It just amazes me after all this time, I laugh at it and enjoy it as much as I did seeing it live. It's a timeless work of art. Holly bless.

    I know you're joking but could you just imagine.
    I mean Caraway would murder her, TJ would like erase her from the space-time continuum.

    I remember when she said she would beat the whole division with one arm tied behind her back. Then she got her head kicked off.

    Because it's the best KO in mma history. How else do you explain a gif that gets posted on a daily basis for nearly a year....and it's almost as delicious as the first time.

    How do you know?

    Just because she lost to Holly Holm doesn't mean that she would have lost to Dominic the Donkey.

    So? She still exposed Ronda and humiliated her. None of her other opponents did that, regardless of Holly's record.

    Well, he did blow out his knee getting thrown around by Ronda, according to Faber anyways.

    You should draw a distinction between both divisions. Men's and women's.

    There are so many reasons to dislike Rousey but you choose something perfectly reasonable.

    I would have loved to see her try.

    Also she said (seemingly seriously) that she could beat Cain, she was on another planet in terms of arrogance.

    And will go down in MMA history as one of the greatest and most celebrated finishes of all time.
