UFC Champ Ronda Rousey Talks Putting on Gi, Competing in Jiu-Jitsu — 18 Comments

  1. I know she’s hot, fellas but, I just wanted to point out that she still seems really approachable and down to earth. What an awesome lady/athlete/champion!

  2. Maybe she threw them and was able to pin them the whole time but i’m positive Ronda is NOT black belt level. That’s laughable.

  3. WHO WERE THE BLACK BELTS??? LET HER GO AGAINST A HIGH LEVEL WORLD CLASS BLACK BELT IN AN OPEN DIVISION…GABI WOULD MAUL HER FUCKING ASS!

  4. Ben is awesome, but let’s be fair to Ronda. Ronda is doing a *** load more marketing and TV and shows than Ben, especially now with the TUF series filming. Another aspect of things is that Ronda is an elite grappler who needs to work on her striking. On the ground, she is heads and shoulders above her current competition. Physically, she is a beast, but her striking needs work. If she concentrates on improving her striking, preparing for grappling tournaments is a distraction

  5. But the UFC is not sending him all over the world with tours or doing a reality tv show, doing magazine shoots, filming a movie and all this other stuff.

  6. Ronda is in way more popular demand than ben right now, tv show appearances, now staring in blockbuster expendables 3, etc etc ben doesn’t have the tight schedule that ronda has, everybody is interested in her riseing stardom right now.

  7. why? in the vid she stated she already competed in BJJ tourney and beat all the black belt women. Clearly her BJJ skills are at a black belt level

  8. With all due respect to Ben, She is more famous than he is. I am sure she makes more money thru endorsements and side projects too. Thats why she is too busy to be hitting the BJJ circuit like Ben

  9. People who hate on her are losers!!! She obviously has the highest level grappling in hands down! No female grapplers can touch her. So why disrespect her skills? She stated in the vid that before she was famous she competed in a BJJ tourney and beat all the black belt BBJ females so clearly she is on the black belt level in BJJ. Haters gonna hate. She is the truth!!

  10. LOL, she’d absolutely murder everyone at blue belt. Maybe they should bump people with BB in judo with really good newaza up to purple?

  11. LOL, judging from one of her answers, she’s been watching the gracie breakdown videos.

  12. Benson probably doesn’t have as many obligations with the media & other extracurriculars (movies + photo shoots + interviews + sponsors).
