Everyone was disappointed today when Ronda Rousey said she was never going to fight a man. It\u2019s not a reality. They\u2019re not gonna do anything like that. Fights are chaotic. Anything can happen. And there\u2019s no setting in which we should condone a man hitting a woman.\u201d \u201cI really just don\u2019t think that any athletic commission on Earth would ever condone something like that. Fights are going to go both ways. You\u2019re going to see both people hitting each other. I don\u2019t think we should celebrate a man hitting a woman in any kind of setting\u201d But it isn\u2019t a new revelation. Last October, Ronda Rousey explained the same sentiment to a Fox reporter, saying, \u201cI don\u2019t think it\u2019s realistically a good idea at all.\u00a0 Because MMA is already fighting to be accepted, especially with all the Ray Rice and all these things going on.\u00a0 It\u2019s never going to be a good thing to have a man hitting a woman on television or ever in any circumstance unless it\u2019s the gym where I\u2019m about to go train right now after this.\u201d Thanks, Ray Rice. Thanks a lot, man. Because a couple years ago, Rousey said she would \u201clove to beat the sh*t out of Bryan Caraway, but apparently it\u2019s not legal. And he seems like the kind of b*tch that would sue me.\u201d Caraway, best known as the boyfriend of Miesha Tate, had called Ronda an \u201cunintelligent bimbo,\u201d offering to \u201cknock her teeth dwn her throat and break her arm.\u201d Joe Rogan even supported the idea last October, saying, \u201cI think if Ronda Rousey and Bryan Caraway talked enough sh*t and they decided to go at it, I don\u2019t have any problem with that if they both agree to it.\u201d But that was the same month Ronda was out talking about Ray Rice to a conservative news network. Of course, the obvious solution is choosing an opponent who would be unlikely to hit her: someone like Kalib Starnes, who refuses to engage, riding his backwards bicycle until they clinch up tidily and roll into some oddly-angled armbar.\u00a0 But that doesn\u2019t make for much of a fight.\u00a0 And so, the gender-themed question heard round gym water coolers after every Rousey event will probably never be answered.\u00a0 But perhaps someone at Metamoris is having a lightbulb moment today, and the world could at least get a tasteful introduction to co-ed combat, without all the punching.
