Ronda Rousey- “The fight with Cyborg is about the money, not her weight”

Published

on

Ronda Rousey has delivered by participating in a Reddit pastime; the Ask Me Anything “AMA”.

For those who are unaware of what an “AMA” is “The interviewee begins the process by starting a post, describing who they are and what they do. Then, commenters leave questions and can vote on other questions according to which they would like to see answered. The interviewee then goes through and responds to any questions that he/she would like, and in any way that he/she prefers”.

One of the popular subjects of this “AMA” was the much anticipated title fight between Ronda Rousey and Christina “Cyborg” Santos. The two have had an ongoing feud for as long as anyone can remember; Ronda Rousey has continuously been outspoken on the topic.

“What is your sincere opinion about Cyborg?”

“Sincere opinion about Cyborg: she’s just waiting to be offered enough money to get her ass kicked (‘cuz she knows she’ll get her ass kicked). I know for a fact she can make the weight. She consulted with Mike Dolce (my current nutritionist) before I ever started working with him and after consulting with her he said he could get her in “the best shape of her life” at 135. She then started being represented by Tito Ortiz and all talk stopped. The delay is all about money, not her weight. She made 145 pumped full of steroids. She can healthily make 135 without them. Her shows that she headlines lose thousands of dollars, and the majority of the tickets are given away because no one will buy them. She needs me. So pretty much we’re waiting for her to realize that she needs to fight me before I retire or she’ll never have enough money to retire. I would like me kicking her ass be my retirement fight but whether she steps up or not I’ll walk away undefeated and happily ever after regardless.”- Ronda Rousey

The feud between these two will continue until the day they throw down in the cage; and probably long after that. The two have been rumored to face of January of 2016, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.

Speaking of highly anticipated UFC debuts, Fedor Emelianenko is rumored to be in negotiations with the UFC. Fedor has never thought highly of women’s MMA and Ronda Rousey weighed in with her thoughts of Fedor.

“How do you think Fedor Emelianenko will do in the octagon after all these years of absence?”

“Ring rust is a real serious thing that is hard to overcome and of course I wish Fedor the best but that much of a lay off would affect anyone’s performance, which is why I fight so often.”- Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey has 25 minutes of total fight time and she would not have it any other way.

“Do you sometimes wish your fights would last a little longer than just a few seconds?”

“No because the shorter my fights are, the more fights I can have. I only have a finite amount of fight time, and I’d like to fight as long as possible.”- Ronda Rousey

Aside from the topics that pertain to Rousey’s career in the octagon; she can eat 60 chicken wings in a sitting, plays World of Warcraft, is a Pokémon Master, and she is a movie star; making a case for Ronda Rousey to be the most interesting woman on the planet.

As her walkout song suggests; Ronda simply “Doesn’t care bout’ her bad reputation.”

“I accept that I have NO control over my image already. So, I try not to let the state of my perception have any effect on my happiness. You can never truly know anyone through only media anyway. If anything I just try to keep in mind that I’m an entertainer and not a politician or Miss America.”-Ronda Rousey

Exclusive: Derek Brunson: “Anderson was definitely a little lubed up”

Published

on

Derek Brunson fought Anderson Silva back in February of this year, at UFC 208. Brunson would go on to lose the fight by controversial unanimous decision. However, the controversies didn’t stop at the questionable decision, Brunson also claims Silva was greasing during the fight. The Wilmington, North Carolina native, posted about it on Twitter a few days ago:

Speaking with MMA Latest, Brunson explained why he believes Silva was greasing during the fight. “Anderson was definitely a little lubed up. Every time I grabbed him he was just slipping out of everything, and his takedown defense was really good that night. I was definitely curious to know why he was very slippery, which I definitely think he had some kind of substance on his body. He knows I’m a wrestler obviously, he’s an old, savvy veteran, so he was definitely trying to play all the rules and be very strategic, and make it harder for a wrestler to grab him.”

Brunson is set to face Lyoto Machida come October 28, when asked about whether he was worried about Machida greasing, considering Gegard Mousasi accused him of doing so in their fight, Brunson admitted he wasn’t too worried.

Well I’m not too worried, but like I said, I put it out there because I know they’re friends and I know, obviously, that’s kind of what the guys do when they know they’re fighting a wrestler. They want to lube their body up really good to make it hard to grab hold, Anderson did a great job defending my takedowns. It’s because he was all greased up so he was able to stop a lot of them. When I grab guys in the clinch, it’s very tough for them to get away and I’m pretty good with my Greco takedown. He was pretty much pulling through my clinch when I had a tight grip on him and if you have some kind of substance on your body it’s easy to pull them.”

Neither Silva nor his management have commented on the greasing allegations. Anderson Silva makes his return against Kelvin Gastelum later this year, in China. While Brunson makes his return to the Octagon on October 28th, in Brazil, where he looks to add Lyoto Machida’s name to his impressive list of victories.

Ovince Saint Preux Steps in to Face Corey Anderson at UFC 217

Published

on

UFC 217 just got even more interesting. Earlier this week, Patrick Cummins pulled out of his light heavyweight matchup with Corey Anderson due to a Staph infection. Corey “Overtime” Anderson was not happy with his opponents decision, even calling out his opponent on Instagram asking how Cummins could, “call it quits so far from fight night”.

The UFC left Anderson on the card, and he found an opponent through the magic of Twitter. Ovince Saint Preux tweeted out directly to Anderson stating:

It didn’t take long for Anderson to respond agreeing to the fight, tagging Mick Maynard and Dana White in his response.

Only a few short hours later, the fight announcement came from the official UFC twitter account.

 

This top 10 Light Heavyweight matchup should add to an already amazing card coming in November at Madison Square Garden. Saint Preux is coming off of back to back wins both due to the very rare von flue choke, he finds himself ranked #7th in the latest edition of the 205-pound rankings. Corey “Overtime” Anderson is 4-2 in his last 6 fights, but is coming off a brutal first round knockout loss to Jimi Manuwa in March.

With such a exciting fight added to this card, what do you see happening November 4th?  Will Corey Anderson bounce back and look to jump into the top 5 of the rankings, or will Ovince Saint Preux go for a third straight von flue choke? Let us know.
