Let them get their faces punched in
|What follows is even stupider than this|
UFC women’s bantamweight champion and all-around American badass Ronda Rousey said on ESPN’s Sportscenter Thursday that she believes she could beat “100 percent” of the UFC male fighters in her weight class.
“UFC announcer Joe Rogan has stated that he thinks you might be able to beat 50 percent of UFC male bantamweight fighters,” Sportscenter anchor Matt Barrie said. “So now this debate has started. Ronda, what do you think of about Rogan’s comment?”
"I never say that I'm incapable of beating anybody, because I don't believe in putting limits on myself," Rousey replied. "So I mean, I would have to say if you're just talking about what's in the realm of possibility of what's possible of who I could beat, well, I could beat 100 percent of them. But, um, you can't tell me that there's a zero percent chance that I can beat anyone on the planet, so I'm never gonna say that."
Rousey was the star of the American sports scene last Saturday night when she beat Cat Zingano in just 14 seconds to retain her title, pushing her overall record to 11-0. Afterward, Rogan said he believed Rousey could beat half the men in her weight class.
"There's a lot of guys her size she could beat," Rogan said on The Dan Lebatard Show. "I mean, a lot. If you took the roster of the UFC's bantamweights, 135 pounds, and you paired them up against Ronda Rousey, she might be able to beat 50 percent of them. That's not a joke."
At a height of 5ft 5ins and weighing 115lb (8st 2lb), at first glance pretty Alexa Grasso doesn't look like she packs a punch.
But the 21-year-old, who lives in Mexico, has proved she's a force to be reckoned with in the ring as she remains undefeated as a professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter.
The strawweight (her weight category) is said to have knockout power that few women possess as she has already achieved four knockout wins in her professional career - which only began in 2012.
She first decided to make a living as a fighter when she attended an event with her uncle, who is now her coach.
Alexa says that seeing women like herself in the ring made her realise that you don't have to be super macho to be strong.
