“People got upset when I said that I think she could beat a lot of men in her weight class,” Rogan said on his podcast. “They don’t know. They’ve never rolled with a girl who is really good.
“Technique is paramount and her technique is so laser sharp. If she got in there with a guy who doesn’t have that good of technique, just because he’s a man, the physical strength, the benefits of being a male, whatever advantages he may have, aren’t necessarily going to counter the technique that she has when they’re the same weight.”
“She competes at 135 pounds, if you deal with her versus a guy at 170 like Johny Hendricks, Jesus, of course that’s a mismatch. Johny Hendricks is a powerful, big strong man and he’d most likely beat her up.”
“But talking about a guy who is her weight and then even if he’s physically stronger than her, maybe he can hit harder, but how much of a technical advantage does she have on the ground? She could easily catch you in something in a scramble. Easily. She’s one, two, three, four steps ahead of you.
Rogan isn’t wrong with any of the claims he made above, obviously Hendricks is a former champion with a size advantage and obviously has great technique which you think would lead him to beating Rousey. Technique does beat size when size has no understanding in most cases, but the bantamweight division of the UFC are professionals, they have to be proficient in all areas of MMA and they have a strength advantage. This would lean you towards Rousey losing to these men, but give her 100 fights she will obviously win a percentage of them, she is a world champion and an Olympic bronze medalist after all.
