Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
Every other day on the UG it seems that she is headlining the main news section saying something totally ridiculous.

Dana also said he will push her harder than any UFC male fighter.

very strange.

I guess this is in line with the feminist agenda.

RE: Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
This is a push to the mainstream, Dana White has not really understood that sex sells, the scanty clad octagon girls are merely copies of the boxing model, but he has seen the sales of the playboy magazines these women are involved in and seen the potential new audiences and revenue streams.
I am not sure if they are looking at a soft porn type tv channel or production company based on this but pushing someone like Rhonda Rousey into the mainstream as much as possible is his big leap forward into the sexual exploitation of his contractors.
I believe contary to popular belief he was encouraged to do this by Frank Jnr rather than Lorenzo, Frank Jnr having more experience and influence in the Las Vegas and California porn industry.
I'm not saying this will be full on pornography by any means, but its a slippery slope, and there is more revenue in having "famous" women being semi naked doing lewd acts rather than common place porn stars where the industry is domminated by illegal downloading, something zuffa wants to avoid.

They want to push the women angle as being sexy and violent, that women are violent and strong, to get certain types of people excited over this and willing to fork out large sums of money to furfill their fantasys, how the revenue streams will flow from this I am uncertain, I am sure they have detailed blueprints for how this will happen.
Station hotels / zuffa gambling, drinking, fighting, sex is the next logical extension, in the casino business this has long been used, high rollers or whales being provided by casino management with whores on the house, this is where Frank Jnrs influence will have undoubtably come in.

RE: Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
Thanks for the insight.

the push is so artificial it makes me cringe. I don't even think most people are interested in women's MMA.

the thing is they should've done something like this with gina carano..

Unfortunatly for zuffa, and I believe they may have sounded her out at some point, Gina has morals, her Italian heritage and unwillingness to embrass her family meant she would have refused such overtures.
Rhonda Rousey has no such moral barriers and is perfectly willing to put her sexuality into the limelight be that ESPN photo shoots of her naked or whatever else zuffa requires of her as it enables her to quest for fame, attention, and money.

I agree.

Carano seemed like a decent girl.

Rousey seems like a total attention drama queen.

I just never got why EVERY thing she says has to be a news item on the UG.

RE: Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
You have perhaps hit the nail on the head, everything she says is a news item on the uG
why is that ?

Its often not news at all, in fact 95% of the time its not.

yet its reported as such, who is pushing this agenda ?

the general mMa fans are not interested in it, yet its being pushed towards a certain demographic.

One can only thing instructions or money is involved to some degree, perhaps a tit for tat arrangement of some kind.

RE: Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
Ronda's got the streets yo. She's trained with the best, from Judo Gene to the Diaz Bros. She's got mad skills yo! She's training with Lucia Rjiker. She's working on her defense, and she's developed a MEAN jab. She's gonna double or triple that jab up, get inside on Lizbo, ragdoll her to the ground, take an arm and win again. Under 3 minutes, mark my words.

Dana never got Fedor, so now he wants what he can sell as the next best thing. Is Ronda Fedor, No!, But will the skill level discrepancy between her and anyone else in WMMA make her look like it? You goddamn right it will. As long as she doesn't fall in love with her boxing, she's gunna have that shiny belt until she gets some shitty movie deal with Sodomberg. 209 Bitch!

Don't be scared, homie!

RE: Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
I think Ronda has like 30 lbs of the likes of Megumi Fuji, at least I think that was her name. And as much as I hate to say it, NDNH has a point. Everyone loves The Destroyer. A couple more 1st round armbars, and Ronda will enter the arena with a Tysonesque aura. She will literally have fights won before she steps in the cage. Liz, Meisha, Roxy, LaRosa, whoever the UFC feeds to her will be in there watching her walk to the cage with tears running down their face, and piss streaming down their leg.

The more you cry, the less I care.

RE: Why is Ronda Rousey being pushed so hard artificially?
It's partly because Ronda actually finishes her fights in spectacular fashion. 9 fights in 10 minutes, all by armbar. Provided that WMMA has a much shallower talent pool, it's still an impressive feat for any fighter. Also helps that she's slightly attractive and talks a lot of crap.

What annoys me more is the way the news outlets pushes anything about her to the front page. Everytime she writes a tweet or does something it gets posted to the UG and guys either (1) talk shit about her or (2) talk about how much they want to fuck her. It's fucking pathetic how much these guys care about her day-to-day.

Is it any wonder that Dana says never in the UFC and then turns 180 and gives her a belt? This is comical. A wholesome, perfect poster girl for good, Catholic values was already in place with Gina. Why did Mr. White have to push out the right girl and force his S&M girl on us?

yep. they had Carano.. and could've put more effort into pushing her.

She seems like a nice girl that would act as a healthy role model relatively.
