RE: Sports illustrated: Ronda Rousey most dominant athlete on the planet
zero logic.

women's MMA doesn't field that many athletes and has a shallow talent pool.

the most dominant athlete on the planet is the best athlete in the SPORT WITH THE DEEPEST TALENT POOL.

the most dominant athlete would probably be somebody in soccer.

men's MMA is also much deeper than women's MMA so the p4p champ in men's MMA is a better athlete than Ronda Rousey

You could argue the other way;

if you define 'dominant' literally, the statement may be true. What other athlete is SO much better than all the others in a specific field?

The level of competition is indeed a big reason, but on the surface the claim might actually be true

^ decent perspective, but I still think it gives people impression that she is the best athlete in the world.

i also bet they don't talk about how shallow women's MMA is.

it's far worse than even shit like curling.

She's ducking Santos, though.

I think you guys are just having a knee-jerk reaction to the shitty MMA Media and UFC Marketing. If you look on forums, everyone hates Ronda. If you tune into the MMA Media, they grovel at her feet. This is about celebrity status, not skill.

Don't let the media spectacle cloud your judgement.

Watch Ronda train. She has power, agility, control and an incredible determination and intensity. Her No-Gi Judo is just phenomenal, she has far surpassed Karo in technical ability.





If any of the other chicks in the division could even do the kind of pad-work Ronda does, people would be shitting themselves.

Ronda is p4p the best female fighter in the world.

Even the most deluded feminist knows what would happen if Ronda fought somebody like Urijah Faber, let alone somebody currently at the top of that weight class.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

Everything about the UFC is artifice. It's like watching people with Down's syndrome do mma.

RE: Sports illustrated: Ronda Rousey most dominant athlete on the planet
I don't really agree with it either, but there are arguments to be made in her favor. An mma fighter can display dominance better than someone in a team sport who relies on other players to help them win. Also, Ronda has won almost every single fight she's been in by first round submission, which is obviously the definition of dominance. However, the wmma talent pool is very shallow and the skill level in that pool isn't very high yet.

This was most likely a business decision by SI more than anything else.

RE: Sports illustrated: Ronda Rousey most dominant athlete on the planet
Show me someone who can throw like her in the UFC.

Look at her insanely fast innovative solution to Zingano in just a few seconds.

Level of competition aside, she is really really good at what she does. Few men have Olympic qualifications under their belt, and few are likely to train any harder/smarter than she does.

Respect where respect is due.

I am a huge fan

That's what I'm saying too Masato. I don't care if she could beat Barao or Faber (though I'd put my money on her over McCall). Her skill level is off the charts. Her work ethic is elite. She has fire and charisma. The results are stunning. Her competition isn't top notch but she's aggressively destroyed every challenger in the first round.

She's right up there with Fedor.

Where else have you seen such high quality Judo without the GI? Like I said, she's far surpassed Karo and is more innovative than Akiyama.



Id kill for those skills. I know of very few men or women who are in that level without the GI. Camarillo, Jacare, Fedor, Akiyama. Who else?
