    She even states that there were moments where she asked herself "could I."

    I say yes.

    In addition to kickboxing and boxing, she has a blue belt in Japanese jiu jitsu

    All around awesome!

    Is she signed to the UFC?

    No?

    Then go have fun in the Wasteland among all the Floyd threads.

    She only said she trained with Rousey before and entertained the idea of MMA, but imo her limited Judo and Jujutsu experience is laughable at best compared to Rousey's resume(only McMann even come close in grappling achievements).
    In a kickboxing/boxing match, she is still untouchable and packs quite alot of power.

    too bad she's up there as far as age goes otherwise she would have undoubtedly dabbled into MMA and eventually find success

    Blue belt in "Japanese" jujutus? You realize that that could mean nothing right?
    Blue belt BJJ taps black belt in Japanese jujutsu/Judo all the time.

    If you can't defend a takedown, you can't accomplish much in mma. And not
    every one can just train and become good at grappling.

    Not to mention that a blue belt is only the second highest rank..

    When will you guys realise that boxing isn't MMA?
    Rousey haters are really delusional.

    No, she won't beat a top male MMA fighter, but stop acting like she can't beat boxers.

    I saw some tvshow about sportscience where they tested Lucia ( i'm guessing about45 years old) against a 25 year old male olympic boxer and she still punched a lot ( really a lot) harder then the guy.
    But let's be honest, she would have to be at least 20 years younger to even think about trying MMA. To bad she isn't though.

    Rijker in her prime would be a scary scary girl/woman. Now? Come on, be realistic.
    And yes, she could be signed by the UFC, the other 3 horses Ronda hangs around with would probably get wrecked by Lucia

    Lucia Rijker would still beat the tar out of most male MMA fighters in a striking match.

    Eherm, cheap move TS cheap move..

    What she ACTUALLY said was (paraphrasing): I trained with Ronda many years ago, and there were times when I thought that MAYBE I could have hanged with her. Not now though, I couldn't beat MMA fighters today

    She's good (on paper) but only 1 pro MMA fight. Wouldn't bet my house on her yet
