Rocking Ronda Rousey truly is the next big thing in MMA. In fact, she already is the current big thing in MMA. Need further proof?
Check out her spread in the latest edition of the highly popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. She combines her incredible in cage talent with a smoking hot look and overall presence that makes men want to be with her, and woman want to be her.
She is great on the microphone as well and can hype a fight as good if not better than any male fighter. Some fans and media have compared her to the early days of Mike Tyson. A fighter that no one can even come close to beating, let alone not getting knocked out cold in one round, or in Rouseys case, tapped out.
She is so much more than hype and her crossover appeal into SI, television and movies can only be good for the sport. With huge superstars such as GSP in retirement, Anderson Silva testing positive for PED’s and Jon Bones Jones failing a drug test for cocaine, the UFC badly needs fresh superstars and Rousey fit the role perfectly.
All signs point to Rousey, Chris Weidman and Connor McGregor becoming the new faces of the MMA world. She is more than just a look, more than just a talent in the cage, Rousey is the total package and shows no signs of slowing down!
The UFC and Dana White would be smart to plaster her face on as many promo items and products to sell as possible.
Rousey has what it takes to become a dominant force in the entire sports landscape for a very long time to come, and if you need a reminder as to why, just tune in to her next fight at UFC 184 on February 28 on pay per view, or simply drop by your local newsstand and pick up a copy of SI.
Either way, you won’t be disappointed! Until next time fight fans,
No Blood : No Foul
