Imagine the amount of malpractice lawsuits Ronda Rousey would accumulate if she was a chiropractor. Ronda fights like she spent her entire childhood angrily ripping off the limbs of every G.I. Joe action figure she’s owned. That’s right, G.I. Joes because I can’t imagine a young Rousey playing the role of caretaker to a miniature plastic female. I’m fairly certain that’s not her style. According to this Miesha Tate interview, she knows Ronda Rousey more than I do. So much in fact that she believes Rousey isn’t an MMA fan and that she’s only in the sport to propel her career to Hollywood.
While I find it interesting that this was really the first time the producers showed Ronda flipping me off, I really think the viewers are getting to see the real Ronda this season – and it’s not pretty. She’s got a great skillset and as an athlete she’s awesome. But she’s not interested in building female MMA, she’s interested in building Ronda MMA and then leaving for movies or something else.
She isn’t an MMA fan at heart. Shayna was the only fighter out of the 16 women who fought to get in the house that Ronda had heard of. The other girls, Ronda had no clue who they were, what they had done, where they had fought, nothing.
Here’s a heads up, Ronda. If you want to get to Hollywood from Venice, you can take Santa Monica boulevard all the way up. You don’t have to ditch the entire MMA thing, just read those directions and you’re good.
