Bret Hart has the Sharpshooter
Ric Flair's got the figure 4
Rousey's got the Arm Bar

her transitions are insane. she just rolls and rolls. i'm gonna need to see a gracie breakdown of this. kaufman actually defended it well for a while but rousey is just on another level with that arm bar

looks like rousey added improved striking to set up her nasty-ass armbar. jesus. but it was probably only a matter of time with the beefy arms that she has.

and i did like her post-fight interview, where she went right after cyborg yet overall seemed like a decent person for the first time in a while...

but this thing about cyborg needing to come down to 135... i'm not convinced that really needs to happen. rousey herself has fought higher than that many times in judo, and more importantly, she is running out of viable challengers at this point. nobody should have any real reason to complain at a catch-weight of 140.

It's funny UFC says they wont let women in because they don't draw. But honestly I think Rousey is a top 5 draw in MMA right now.

Silva
Jones
GSP

Now that Lesnar's gone who else is really a bigger mainstream attention draw than she is? They might as well try it and see how the sales do. I think her and Cyborg in the main event of a PPV would pull much better numbers than some of the bullshit they're asking us to pay $50 for. I'd pay for that before I'd pay to see Wanderlei vs. Rich Franklin or Faber vs. Barao.

This is random but... I love the feeling when you watch a fight live and once the referee signals the fighters to begin...it's like an adrenaline rush and you just don't know what to expect...thats why i love watching mma/ufc fights

That Jacare KO was sweet!

And that guy OSP (can't spell his name) looks mad powerful.

and thus a hell raising, limb breaking super solider was spawned

Guys can not believe this fight will happen. My class has no more. I'm waiting for my liberation from the UFC...

and uhh, what does that mean? looking at the rest of her recent tweets, it doesn't look like she wants to go down to 135 so she might be headed elsewhere.

man, if only sara mcmann was a better striker with her kicks...think she could pose a challenge for ronda

i think she's saying that the 145lb division in SF is dead, so that her only choice is to jump to invicta or something.

but technically, she's correct. SF has not run a single 145lb fight since cyborg's suspension IIRC. so it's true that there is literally nobody competing with her anymore. so cyborg can technically come back to 145 anytime she wants to and recollect her belt whenever she wants to, with nobody of any importance available to slow her down.

anyway, who is sara mcmann?
