Completely disregard the fact that I am in love with Ronda Rousey (I mean look at her, who wouldn’t be) for just a few moments.
Last night at UFC 184, she faced off against arguably the second greatest Women’s Mixed Martial Artist in the world right now: Cat Zingano. It should have been a slog for both competitors, it should probably have gone for the full 5 rounds but instead Rousey asserted her dominance, not only in the first round but in the first 14 seconds. A 14 second victory, in a championship fight against the person who is as close to your equal as possible? That’s impressive. Last year her TKO of Alexis Davis in 16 seconds showed just how dominant she is in the octagon but for anyone who doubted that assertion, last night is sure to put those doubts to rest.
Both competitors went into last nights fight with undefeated streaks and ultimately only one was going to leave with that streak still in tact. An arm-bar followed a great transition from a counter take down to have Zingano tapping out almost instantly.
Personally, at this moment in time I don’t see anyone walking out with a win over Rousey, at least not in the near future. Last night Holly Holm looked impressive in her UFC debut so pitting her against Rousey is definitely something I’d like to see in the future.
Overall last nights UFC was a fairly decent event. Coscheck foaming at the mouth after a fight in which he looked dazed for the majority was a highlight. For me though, Rousey just stole the show again.
I wonder if she’d accept my marriage proposal? I can definitely promise her that I last longer in bed than her matches do.
