Actually, reading about the accounts(if completely true) this guy should be doing some hard time. Harassing, pursuing and battering the woman. The poo they were supposedly saying too...Jesus. He pretty much did everything short of rape the girl and I am not sure that wouldn't have happened if the other girl didn't call the cops. Now this guy is truly a POS.
Rousey is definitely good but she is also a big media attraction, so the UFC has every reason in the world to protect her. Almost all of her opponents have had extremely low chances against her. We have still yet to see her against a very good striker (which Cyborg definitely is).
I think as the women's MMA pool gets deeper and evolves more, Rousey will end up being surpassed by much more well rounded fighters.
I lose most of my respect for her because she ducks Cyborg so much. She is scared of her, there is no question in my mind(and with good reason). Plus, as good as she appears to be in the women's division, I don't think she would fare well against the men. It isn't skill or strength, it is class of opponent. The men's division at 135 is much, much, much deeper than the women's division at 135. Those guys face a much higher caliber of opponent on a nightly basis and that is a big edge, IMO.
No, she is ducking her. She said she would fight Mayweather(stupid and pointless) or Carano at higher weights but she won't for Cyborg? GTFO. At minimum it should be a catchweight at 140, which is reasonable for both.
Words are never an excuse for violence, IMO.
I'm 5-6, 165 so I have zero size advantage which means the ground game is essentially out for me. Stand up it has to be and that really revolves solely around the ability to remaining standing against a world class judo practitioner. Haymaker is really the only option, the way I see it. Training is extremely minimal, BTW.
At 185, I would definitely agree ground and pound is an option but you also have to considering that if you get it to the ground you are really in her world. The submission game will really swing that weight advantage back in her favor. At your size I would want it to stay on the feet too, unless you are confident have the strength to fight through an armbar. Most untrained or lightly trained guys that are bigger than her would probably be better served to keep it standing, IMO.
Yeah but will the ball be tight enough to avoid a limb being wrenched out? I am not sure I trust my grip strength that much. Choke is always an option but I would have to think that if she is charging me that bad intentions are meant and that is really mercy.
It's the only shot I have! Probably can't outrun her, DEFINITELY not going clinch with her, kicking would be an even worse idea....miracle haymaker is the only legit option. She has a very untested chin as well, so it gives me that 0.1% chance.
