“I never wanted to beat someone so badly in my life.” – Rowdy Ronda Rousey.
Pure Dominance. That is the only way to describe what Ronda Rousey continuously does in the octagon, her last four fights have only lasted a combined 130 seconds and her perfect 12-0 record doesn’t hurt. Approaching UFC 190 versus Beth Correia, Rousey called this her “most personal fight” as she had to relive the loss of her father and more recently long time wrestling fan favorite Rowdy Roddy Piper (who gave her permission personally to carry on the “Rowdy” nickname).
Correia made comments early Rousey “not to commit suicide after she lost” which sent Ronda into rage mode months before they were set to square of. For those unaware, Rousey lost her father in that manner at a very young age. Why those comments were made, we will never know. What we do know is that Correia ate a few vicious punches for the remarks landing on the canvas :34 seconds into Round 1 of the UFC 190 Main Event.
Nothing in us believes that even without the extra motivation the result would’ve been any different, which inevitably leads us to the question: Who can possibly beat her? One fighter has a suggestion.
Good fight for Honda.My next fight is140lbs,then I hope we get a chance to give fans the WMMA fight the most violent fight in the history!

While they have been outside of each other’s reach for awhile now, it appears the gap may be closing thanks to Cris Cyborg wanting a piece of the action with Rousey. But, will it happen? If so, how soon? It is definitely something to keep an eye on and although Cyborg would be her toughest opponent to date with incredible knockout power, this is not boxing – it is MMA.
The prediction from this end is that the fight would be incredibly intense prior to and during but would end by submission in favor of Rowdy Ronda Rousey. Of course, nothing is to say the fight will ever happen but in the world of sports just like in music – the speculation is always fun.
