I’m never shaking Ronda Rousey’s hand. I never want to put my arms at a risk from evacuating from my torso. My arms are valuable to me. Without them, I would no longer be able to wave at passing cars if I were ever stuck on the side of the road. My urban survival skill level will automatically drop to zero if Ronda Rousey steals my arms.
In San Jose, ZUFFA announced they would have a ‘Strikeforce viewing party’ at a local bar. We went there, and the owner of the place told us he didn’t have Showtime. We were all stranded in the middle of San Jose, surrounded by $3 Well Drinks. Some time passed and I received a text message on my phone from Jason Nawara with the words ‘OMG’ and ‘Ronda Rousey’ in the same sentence. I stopped everyone’s conversation at the table and said something alone the lines of ‘Something crazy just happened tonight.’ For all everyone knew, the moon must have fell off its axis. That would have been crazy. I forgot to finish off my statement with ‘…in Strikeforce’ so people started to panic and call their loved ones. I reassured everyone that it had to do with Ronda Rousey’s fight in Strikeforce Challengers, then Jason called me up to give me a quick summary of the bout. As he told me, my mouth continued to drop. By the time the call ended, everyone at the table wanted to know exactly what happened in the fight. The only thing I could say (with the limited amount of brain cells that were operating at the time) was ‘Ronda Rousey Shinya Aokied Julia Budd!’
Immediately after the bout, LayzieTheSavage caught up with Ronda to see what super power she activated during the bout in this post-fight interview. Props to Esther Lin for the picture.
