    Im not a Ronda fan, but I'm always on the lookout for the next big thing. Saw Mckenzie Dern fight live against Kenia Rosas(2-1 Amateur, 0-1 Pro) and win a dominant UD. Now, I will admit that I am not a Rousey fan, but I am also not diluted to the facts. Such as:

    First 10 wins (7 PRO, 3 AMMY) via 1st round Armbar.
    Only 1 of 12 wins made it out of 1st round.
    Never went to decision.
    Was the pioneer of WMMA in the UFC and all but legitimized the ladies to the casual and mainstream fans.
    Judoka Olympian turned MMA fighter turned into crossover star with worldwide fame and fan appeal.
    Also simultaneously one of the most beloved and despised personalities in all the sport.

    Now I'm not psychic, but considering that Dern's first fight was a 3 rd. decision, I'd say if she wanted to one up Rousey, she is off to a poor start. Also, do you think Ben is right with his assessment or is he just a Dern lip swinger?

    Bendo doesn't sound too bright with this prediction.

    Yeah, that dude is pretty hot. I like his hair. Would.

    Also, there's only one Henderson in mma. Bendo said this.

    It's absolutely possible.

    Note that, booth Cyborg and Jonna Violence has the potential to become big international stars (maybe not as big as Rousey) but big nonetheless.

    She has a real good future but has a long way to go if she wants to hang with the top SW on the feet.

    Oh yea, and she's the number 1 rated women's grappler in the world, is young pretty with a great smile, so it's not like she won't get a chance.

    She has a few interesting advantages. - She is very good looking
    - She is american, but speaks fluent (native speaker level) portuguese and is the daughter of a brazilian who is also an important name in BJJ. She will probably have good support in both countries.

    Her disadvantage is not having Rousey's throws.

    I think she will have a good career, but it's soon to tell how big of a star.

    The only thing I will give her is she is definitely more attractive than Rousey.
