    If Ronda wasn't pretty and a chick, she'd be unknown.

    Agree with Rousey somewhat. He's the biggest draw but his fights aren't that great. Canadians are ridiculously nationalistic.

    If GSP wasn't the best WW fighter of all time then he would be unknown, I doubt his looks or being Canadian is the reason he's the best.

    while being canadian and good looking certainly has a major impact on gsp's marketability, to say that those are the only reasons for his success is kinda far-fetched

    in many ways she is right. if gsp was ugly and not from canada, then he would simply be an ugly fighter who has a boring/unentertaining style.....nothing special there.

    Ronda is completely wrong on this one. If GSP didnt have any looks and was American, he'd still be popular with his record.

    Why does GSP average twice as many ppv buys as Anderson Silva when Anderson is more exciting and has had a more dominant run?

    I think Rousey may want a piece of that Canadian bacon.

    ...In the meantime...

    Cyborg is on a diet cutting weight, and will destroy Ronda...

    ...Then what?

    I agree that point fighting sucks but GSP has taken it to another level. Point fighters usually end up losing but GSP's skills are just on another level. He might not be able to finish but he has excellent technique.

    And yes she is Nick's friend...
