Ronda Rousey Sucumbs To UFC Failure As She Signs Full-Time Deal With The WWE

Submitted by: fancylad 3 months ago in Sports


After the women's Royal Rumble match, Rousey shocked the audience at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA by making her first appearance since Wrestlemania 31 in 2015, where she had a confrontation with Stephanie McMahon. She stepped into the ring and stood next to the winner of the women's Rumble match as well as both Smackdown and Raw women's champions. 

She then pointed at the Wrestlemania sign hanging in the arena, making her intentions known to throw down at WWE's biggest event of the year, taking place on April 8 later this year. She has signed a full-time contract which is something she should've done in the first place. She had no business being in the UFC.

kalron27 Nude puss-puss works for me, but in this case, the puss-puss is so meek and understated it kind of needs some fur just to get its spirits up. Maybe a petite triangle or landing strip would help. C'mon, little puss-puss: Life isn't so bad!

I think this is a much more practical move.

She isn't getting any younger and the competition in the UFC is getting tougher.

Better to take fake hits to the head than real ones.

She lost the Eye of the Tiger.  Got her ass kicked hard by her equivalent of Clubber Lang.  Unfortunately she doesn't have an Apollo Creed to get those gloves on and back in that ring.  

Instead...she has a Vince McMahon...

No, that's a false equivalency; Ronda was the designated UFC 'it' girl after Gina Carano got her butt whooped. She was - in attitude, at least - Clubber Lang.
Rousey is undoubtedly very good at Judo, but that's all she's good at. She demonstrated the over and over again, until the talent pool of female fighters surpassed her.
She was disdainful in victory and a crybaby in defeat.
WWE is where she belongs, and no doubt even that will be a short lived romance.

captkangaroo I disagree.  She got her face punched in hardcore, mostly because she didn't properly prepare for the fight, her trainers even said so.  She was too high on being that "it" girl.  That is definitely an equivalent to Rocky III.  I'm not talking attitude, I'm talking the Eye of the Tiger...and she lost it.

In addition, she was never and will never be a Clubber Lang in attitude either

She never had 'the eye of the tiger', she never had to have it.
She was fed a steady diet of inferior fighters - none of whom did much against opponents besides Rousey - while all the while Rousey refused to shake hands with opponents, indulged in a lot of one sided smack talk - especially after beating an opponent. 
Rousey is not, cannot ever be, a striker, and that is exactly what she would have needed to beat Holm. Being trained for so long in only traditional Judo, Rousey's stance, footwork, timing and instincts are all wrong for hand and/or footstrikes(Other than leg kicks). It would take months upon months to unlearn some skills, then learn new skills, which would have meant time away from competition. Can't do that without forfeiting the belt.
Rousey helped to usher in and raise support for female MMA fighters, there is no doubt, and i give her that. She attempted the 'anti-hero' persona for the ring, but it just came across - imo - as scornful, disrespectful and petty.

captkangaroo Again, I disagree.  She did have the "Eye of the Tiger", she had confidence, she had skills, hell I wouldn't want to get in the ring with her in her prime.  But nothing you said adds to the conversation.  Rousey's pompous ass got pounded by a better fighter because she was lured by fame and let her training lax.  If she stuck to it and listened to her trainers, she could have added pure boxing to her tool belt but instead danced around the ring like a showboat and got knocked the fuck out.

Just like Rocky in III.

And now, where we agree, Vince McMahon has his claws in her...

Her training was not lax, that would imply she was training against strikers - and learning to strike all along. Even she says this was not the case.
Eye of the tiger is not confidence and skills, it's hunger. To win. To be the best. Rousey never really had that, as i said, because she was fed inferior fighters - the first time she got in the ring with a more experienced and well rounded opponent, she lost. Lost badly. Making the holes in her training very apparent.
Her next loss, against another striker, shattered the hype she'd been fed, that she'd bought into, and she crumbled, she pretty much fell apart.
