If anyone can get her past the first round I think Ronda gasses.

The CSAC seems to always make available fighter salary. I'm REALLY curious Ronda's pay.

He'd be more upset than when Brock lost to Cain.

Female MMA fights really mirror female real life fights. Flailing limbs everywhere.

With about 10 seconds to go in the round. Sucks for Liz.

Good fight. Liz put Rousey in more trouble than any of her other opponents did.

Well done to Rhonda. Got out of a scary situation and threw in that arm bar. 7-0 7 first round arm bar finishes. Don't matter who you are. That is impressive.

After how hard the UFC worked to build Rousey up it would have been hilarious to see her get subbed in the first.

What? No they don't. They numbers they disclose are nowhere near what the main eventers get.

Rousey probably got a decent deal and a good PPV cut.

I meant base salary obviously. No state gives out that full pay info but the CSAC does give out show/win money and that's what I was interested in.

Yeah, it's a thinner division than the heavyweight division, and that's saying something.

Entertaining fight, and I think in general the division can be entertaining. Won't ever be very technical at this stage (there are just not enough good fighters) unless they bring in a decent number of fighters experienced in other disciplines.

The arm bar's effective, but it's kind of a gimmick. It shows just how weak the division is when she's running through people with one main threat.

He is. This was a bad match up for him. Rashad vs. Hendo. Make it happen.

I hope cat zingano beats Tate, I think she would give Ronda a better fight.

I understand that the UFC wants to ride the wave with Rousey, but what happens when a far less attractive woman wins the belt? They're going to have a tough time when that happens, imo.

I wonder how hard Dana is going to push for Carano vs Rousey. He'll probably offer Gina a massive pile of cash for her to return to MMA. Wonder if she'd accept though.
