Well except Charmaine Tweet. Still, Ronda Rousey’s MMA career was a masterclass in violent finishes. From 2010 to 2015, Ronda Rousey subbed or TKO’d 15 straight fighters in her amateur and pro career.
Only one fighter made it out of the second round versus Rousey during that span.
For fans who just caught onto the MMA train due to Conor McGregor, you missed most of the Rousey Era. It was fun times and thanks to to this new video we can relive it all.
Two years after she captured the bronze medal in Judo for Team USA, an unassuming Rousey took her first amateur fight. Rousey’s first amateur fight lasted all of 23 seconds and the 23-year-old fighter was on her way to make MMA history.
Does the UFC adopt four brand new women’s weight classes without Ronda Rousey? Eventually, sure but not as quickly and with much as a marketing push behind it. Rousey took the MMA world by storm and then left as soon she was done with it. On to the next challenge in her life.
Those five years were some of the best MMA has ever seen. We still miss Strikeforce and we miss watching Rousey win fights that fit on a Vine (R.I.P Vines).
With apologies to Hayden Munoz, Autumn Richardson, Taylor Stratford, Ediane Gomes, Charmaine Tweet, Sarah D’Alelio, Julia Budd, Miesha Tate, Sarah Kaufman, Liz Carmouche, Miesha Tate (hi again), Sara McMann, Alexis Davis, Cat Zingano and Bethe Correia, this video is not for you.
