In a sea of roided up rug munchers, Ronda Rousey was a Cinderella. The girl you wanted to see win. Many of her competitors looked like their bulges were tucks. Most having cornrows and piles of muscles didn't help their case in convincing the crowd it said female on their birth certificates either. Still UFC ringleader Dana White has been pretty open about his displeasure with Rousey.
As for a comeback a year or years down the road, White didn't sound particularly interested in that either."I don't know if I'd want her to," he said. "The way she came in, the way everything went? It was perfect. I've never been one of those promoters that looks at, 'Oh, imagine how much money I can make if Ronda Rousey comes back' or the Chuck Liddells, all those guys. I'm actually the guy who, when somebody even hints at retiring, says, 'I think you should retire.'"
To be finished in 48 seconds would make any woman angry. But luckily a guy isn't responsible this time when it comes to the upset. Her career was quickie just like the fight that ended it. Claiming the transition to the WWE is an evolutionary career step up is everything short of the truth.
It's just a matter of time before Ronda Rousey officially signs with Vince McMahon -- so says WWE legend, Jim Ross, who says it's a "match made in heaven." "Oh, she's gonna be a big star," ... "It's inevitable. I see her in a WrestleMania someday."
Will horny guys still watch and support your efforts? Of course. Only this time when you win the feeling will feel more fraudulent than that breakaway chair on your back. There's still money to be made Ronda. And the money is what matters. Floyd Mayweather was about to sell his legacy on eBay to pay 2015's tax if the McGregor fight didn't get scheduled. Don't feel bad, champ. At least it's not Mexican wrestling. No one wants a Rakishi to the face while feeling the wrath of frijole laced farts.
