Ronda Rousey is more than just a pretty face. She is a mixed-martial artist with a focus on judo. She won the bronze medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. She then moved into MMA fighting at the beginning of 2011. She currently holds an undefeated record of 6-0.
She is the first female fighter in the UFC. UFC President Dana White recently awarded her the Bantamweight Championship. She is due to face Liz Carmouche at UFC 157. The fight shares top billing with Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida. Rousey has defeated every opponent in the first round, so please time out your bathroom breaks accordingly.

“The Ultimate Fighter” could be getting…hotter?! A rumor that’s floating around is that the competition could be getting its first ever women’s season of TUF. The rumored coaches are Miesha Tate and current Strikeforce bantamweight champion Ronda Rousy. Rousey beat Tate to win the title back in March.
Miesha Tate is a Gina Carano-esque beauty who could kick your ass. Don’t let her nickname of “Cupcake” fool you, she’s an excellent mixed-martial artist. Tate is 12-3 and has a fight tonight with Julie Kedzie (16-10).
She’s my current Sports Crush and you can follow her on Twitter at @MieshaTate.
If you’re on the fence about watching Strikeforce tonight on Showtime and Showtime Extreme, let me help you make up your mind by showing you a photo gallery of Miesha Tate. Continue reading →
