Ronda Rousey Meets Ric Flair At WWE SummerSlam 2014

by

What happens when arguably the greatest pro wrestler of all-time meets his female counterpart in the MMA world? Ric Flair and Ronda Rousey met for the first time at WWE SummerSlam and Middle Easy cameras captured that magic moment for all of us to see.

This is a very cool video as Middle Easy took video of Rousey and her friends throughout the night at SummerSlam. What makes the meeting between Rousey and Flair so special is that Rousey and her friends travel in a group known as the 4 Horsewomen with Rousey of course known as the Ric Flair of her group.

I am not a big Ronda Rousey fan but I did come away with a more favorable opinion of her after watching this video. Rousey is a big WWE fan and it was great to see her having fun as a “person in the crowd” at SummerSlam, cheering her ..click here to read more , , ,

Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier Delayed Until UFC 182

by

UFC fans will have to wait for the biggest fight of the year. An injury to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has delayed his upcoming grudge match with Daniel Cormier until January 2015 and take place at UFC 182.

News broke on Tuesday of the delay which comes a week after some pundits predicted blockbuster numbers for the fight coming off of a press conference brawl and a couple of verbal scraps on television. Tensions boiled over last week when Jones and Cormier got into it at a presser. A satellite feed of ESPN’s interview with the two showed a side of Jones none of us had ever seen where he mocked Cormier and called him “p*ssy” several times. By week’s end interest in this fight had grown to levels not seen since Sonnen vs. Silva 2.

Jones is pulling out of the first due to an injury ..click here to read more , , , ,

UFC 175 Weidman vs. Machida: Five Lessons Learned

by

4th of July weekend means the UFC is in Las Vegas for International Fight Week. Two titles were up for grabs when Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman took on Lyoto Machida, who had the opportunity to become just the third fighter in UFC history to hold belts in two weight classes.  In the other title fight, Women’s Bantamweight Ronda Rousey put her title on the line against Alexis Davis.  In what was a great night of fights, here are my lessons learned from UFC 175.

Lesson 1: Still Champion

I never questioned the skill or toughness of Chris Weidman but there seemed to be a lot of chatter before the fight that he hasn’t truly earned the respect he deserves as champion.  Some believe that both wins against Anderson Silva were flukes.  I wasn’t one of them.  He did what no one else was able to do in the first fight, and he ..click here to read more , , , ,

Gina Carano Vs. Ronda Rousey UFC Rumors Continue To Swirl

by

What does the UFC do when they have run out of opponents for their superstar? Well they go back in time and bring back a star from the past of course. According to reports Ronda Rousey may be in for a big payday and an easy fight.

Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer newsletter and MMAFighting.com reports that the UFC and Gina Carano are talking. The reports indicate that both sides are talking about a potential mega fight between Rousey and Carano this summer. The fight is not signed nor is there any indication that it is a done deal.

Rumors started heating up after UFC color commentator Joe Rogan teased a big announcement regarding Rousey’s next fight a few weeks back.

“You might actually know, but I can’t tell you. I can say no more than I’ve already said. I will tell you this, and this ..click here to read more ,

Cyborg Santos Challenges UFC Champ Ronda Rousey To 135 Fight

by

Ronda Rousey’s nightmare is not going away. Cris Cyborg Santos may be fighting in Invicta but she still has her eyes set on Rousey and the UFC. Dana White has said numerous times he’d consider the fight if Santos dropped weight. Well it’s time to start the negotiating.

Santos left the UFC last year after failing to secure a fight with Ronda Rousey. It amazed me then and it amazes me today that the UFC let that fight get away but they did. Rousey went to Invicta yet the war of words between Rousey and Santos haven’t stopped. Rousey has always said that Santos needs to drop to 135 to fight her. Santos has finally said she’d do it.

Santos released a statement to Inside MMA where she proclaims that she will drop to 135 for three fights. Santos wants one fight against Invicta’s 135 pound champion this summer ..click here to read more ,

Big UFC Fights Missing In 2014

by

With Anderson Silva and GSP on the sidelines, the UFC will need to count on new stars to fill those big fight slots this year. Unfortunately an early look at 2014 exposes a dull year and one of the most turbulent periods of the Zuffa era.

While the UFC has become a watered down product over the last couple of years, there have always been a couple of big fights to get excited about. A 2014 doesn’t show much promise when it comes to these big fights. I looked up and down the list of scheduled fights and potential fights and there is absolutely nothing for a casual fan to get excited about.

Dana White has had a lucky run the last few years. His two biggest stars, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre continued to carry the company while cards became watered down and stars became harder to make. Now White is ..click here to read more , , ,

UFC 168: Weidman Vs. Silva 2 Results: Weidman Wins, Silva Breaks Leg

by

If you were expecting the questions surrounding Chris Weidman’s KO win over Anderson Silva to be answered at UFC 168, well think again. Another controversial ending leaves doubts yet it is Weidman again who leaves the octagon as champion.

Silva and Weidman met at UFC 168 in what the most anticipated UFC championship rematch since Sonnen vs. Silva 2. Weidman’s win in the first fight brought more questions than answers. Was it a fluke? Has Silva regressed? Unfortunately it looks as if several of those remaining questions about Weidman’s win will remain in doubt thanks to one of the most bizarre finishes in a big fight that I can remember.

Weidman dominated the first round against Silva. Weidman rocked Silva hard with a punch while the two were clinching and wound up on top of the former champion. The replay actually showed Silva’s eyes closing for a moment. Weidman proceeded to smother ..click here to read more , , , ,

UFC 168 Weidman Vs. Silva 2 Predictions and Preview

by

When it comes to the numerous UFC events held during the 2013 year; it’ll be 31 by the time this card rolls around, the promotion is definitely saving one of the best for last. To cap a highly active and highly entertaining 20th anniversary year of UFC action, the UFC has a card featuring two massive title fight rematches. In the main event of the evening the legendary Anderson “The Spider” Silva looks to reclaim his place at the top of the Middleweight division when he battles undefeated incumbent champion Chris Weidman. The co-main event of the evening features a long brewing grudge match between the two coaches from the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter as Miesha Tate challenges “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey for her Women’s Bantamweight title.

From the fight capital of the world UFC 168 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 28, 2013. With ..click here to read more , , , ,

The Unraveling Of Ronda Rousey On UFC TUF 18

by

The Ultimate Fighter season 18 is underway and it has started off with a bang. The coaching rivalry is delivering and the fights have been fantastic. Yet it is Ronda Rousey who is by far the most compelling dynamic of the show.

I have been off The Ultimate Fighter bandwagon for awhile. The last season that kept me hooked from beginning to end was the Chuck vs. Tito season. The UFC ran out of undiscovered gems and the coaching rivalries have greatly disappointed (although I was hooked on the Faber vs. Cruz rivalry before Cruz got hurt.) The addition of women fighters and women coaches was a gutsy yet brilliant move on behalf of Fox and the UFC.

When Dana White compared the Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate coaching rivalry to Ken Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz he wasn’t overselling it. It is almost identical to that great season. Shamrock was the ..click here to read more , ,

UFC TUF 18: Rousey Vs. Tate Trailer Doesn’t Live Up To The Hype

by

The first trailer has hit YouTube for the UFC’s upcoming The Ultimate Fighter season. The Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate preview is pretty good but doesn’t come anywhere close to living up the hype and you can thank Dana White for that.

I watched the trailer and while it wasn’t a bad trailer, but I couldn’t help but think that it is hardly representative of the season currently being hyped by the UFC president. Dana White has called the season crazy and said that Miesha vs. Ronda was the best coaching rivalry in TUF history. Maybe it is but you’d never know from the trailer.

Dana White is the biggest problem with The Ultimate Fighter. Every season he comes out and talks about how great the season is, how much the coaches hate each other, the chaos, etc, etc and of the 17 seasons I can only remember two that actually lived ..click here to read more , ,

UFC Challengers Odds Of Beating Champions By Division

by

Although there isn’t really much of a formula these days for deciding who gets title shots in the UFC, the promotion is in a somewhat strange place where there is a clear-cut number one contender in almost every division. With many of these matches prepared to go down in the coming months, let’s take a look at the challengers who have the best chance of upsetting the respective champions in their division.

Women’s Bantamweight Championship – Challenger: Miesha Tate vs. Champion: Ronda Rousey

Upset Odds: +500

Despite the fact that everyone is laughing at the excuse that Tate won the first two rounds of her fight against Cat Zingano as reason enough to have her getting a title shot, it remains true. It’s probably also true that she’ll be a tougher test for champion Rousey come fight time. In the end, that’s likely going to mean very little as neither one stands a ..click here to read more , , , ,

Ronda Rousey Stars In New Insureon Commerical (Video)

by

The Ronda Rousey train keeps on moving forward and there appears to be no end in sight. The UFC champion stars in a brand new Insureon Protector Tech Store trailer as America’s protector of small businesses everywhere.

This is a really fun ad and one that has the potential of going viral. The rise of Rousey in 2013 is one of the greatest stories of MMA success in history. I can’t recall anyone becoming this big of a star in the sport as quickly as she has. With commercials like this it wouldn’t surprise me to see Rousey take a bigger role on screen in the near future.

There is also a small connection to this story which is interesting. Rousey is portrayed as the protector to the small business owner. The twist here is that Rousey’s mom put three kids through college running a small consulting business during the day. This ..click here to read more
