RE: Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
I'm just disappointed that all of these young, truth seeking ladies couldn't have a better role model. It's hard enough for the men to have only superCalo and Dan Henderson to help them see the light. Then you take away a wholesome lady from the position Role Model and it's so sad.

Carano didn't get forced out. She left to eat twinkies and do b-level action flicks with acting talent that made Mannequin Skywalker look like DeNiro.

The more you cry, the less I care.

^ Problem with Carano was that she got utterly destroyed by Cyborg. She lost her confidence after that and had a good escape route in Hollywood. If Cyborg was busted for roids back then instead of now, the landscape of WMMA would be very different.

Also UFC has much more advertising power than Strikeforce did back then.

Gina saw the writing on the wall, how womans mMa was going to expolitation of womans sexuality, a peep show for perverts rather than the honourable sport she had been participating in, she followed her morals and went to Hollywood where she was accepted as a person rather than a object.

When Dana sported a t-shirt featuring Rousey's picture from the ESPN Magazine Body Issue it made me pause for a second. While Dana has supported other fighters by wearing their gear (Ex: Korean Zombie), it just didn't sit right with me in this situation. If it was a simple t-shirt with a logo and her name it would be one thing, but in this picture Rhonda is sort of on display. To me, Dana wearing it almost symbolizes his wanting to have sexual relations with her. I mean really, what man would wear a picture of a woman that he didn't find attractive. He's even said that he thinks she's hot on several occasions. This moment probably didn't seem like a bit deal to a lot of people, but as Rhonda's boss, I thought Dana should've exercised some professional restraint.

The whole sexualization of women's MMA definitely started with Gina, but Rhonda has taken the torch and run with it. While I don't personally find her attractive, she has an army of people that think she's amazing, so as long as she keeps winning we'll continue to be shoved down our throats. The fact that she likes to run her mouth whenever a mic or camera is in front of her just makes her oversaturation even more evident. If she ever loses it'll be interesting to see how how much her coverage changes.

Well for the UG's part, it's gotten pretty whorish/TMZ, and Rousey's legion of haters is sure to make every overexposed quote go a few pages of "Ugh, she's still talking!". For Dana's part, I think he's just capitalizing on the media culture, striking while the iron's hot. It's not like he can just get any fighter all the mainstream appearances he wishes, those outlets (HBO Real Sports, ESPN Body Issue/SportsNation/etc.) are eating up the Ronda story and I think he's just maximizing it as he'd like to maximize any of his fighters getting mainstream attention. I'm a big fan of Ronda, and while, as a role model, she could do without the "I like to have sex as much as possible with a fight coming up.", she's the perfect female fighter for marketing, as she's attractive, legitimately the best (save the Roidborg claims), and performs in an exciting manner...not to mention her story of growing up is tailor made for media outlets who love having something personal to dramatize for their own attention.

I will say I am sold. It is not because it is some circus novelty. She has shown the true power of and brought great honor to the great martial art of Judo. I do not like how is the promotion of trash-culture in modern UFC style MMA, it has not class, but I also will recognize and respect a great and an impressive martial ability. Ronda Rousey is onna-bugeisha who would have not problem to defeat the average OG super-Alpha.

Hard to believe that a middle aged man (other than a registered sex offender) would wear the shirt pictured below.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe we have just located Trayvon Martin's CREEPY ASS CRACKER!!!

Lisa, if the Bible has taught us nothing else -- and it hasn't -- it's that girls should stick to girl's sports, such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing and such and such.

Dana pushing Rousey as hard as he can. It's plain to see.
