The next time Ronda Rousey defends her Strikeforce bantamweight title, she may have developed a new way to mean mug her opponent.

Following a brief vacation that she earned by submitting Miesha Tate in early March, Rousey is already getting back into the gym, and she’s adding some new training partners to her routine.

Rousey will be heading to Stockton, Calif., to work with Nick and Nate Diaz as well as the team at Cesar Gracie jiu-jitsu as she starts preparing for her next title defense.

“Yeah, I’m going up there from the 3rd to the 16th (of April) and it’s going to be the first time ever since I started doing MMA that I’m going to be training for an actual extended period of time away from my core camp, who I’ve always been with,” Rousey told MMAWeekly Radio recently.

Good move on her part. She seems to fit in well with them. They'll help clean up her stand up as well.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Eventhough all these fighters are good, this has to be the most annoying camp of all time. Especially with Chael visiting from time to time. Rousey's proof that if you talk smack like eveything your saying is a fact, no one will check for themselves that she's wrong.

I must have missed some comments she made, busy week. What did she say that people will check on what she said and find out she's wrong?

They can help her with her striking and she can teach them (more so Nate for his upcoming fight) some Judo. Win-win all the way around

Was this before or after she added their attitudes in her routine?

Nick began training Sambo before he ever started with BJJ under a Bulgarian National Sambo champion and still trains with him to this day as Val Ignatov is the Sambo coach for Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy. He talks about it in his half hour interview pre-UFC 143. A ton of Sambo's roots are in Judo, so I think with a dozen years experience, she'll get her game more well-rounded in striking and jitz, but Nick can give her more of a run for her money in Judo than some may think.

if she can get her striking half as good as her arm-locks and judo i see her keeping the belt for a long time. i think she is making a good move by training with cesar's guys, beyond the obvious shit talking skills, they should really help her round out her game.
