Rousey by far imo. everyone knows thats what she wants to finish it with.


the others i dont think in their brains are specifically going for either knees or elbows. feel like they will take the knockout or sub however they get it.


rousey WANTS that armbar

Jones and Silva don't always go for elbows and knees specifically. Henderson usually goes for the H-Bomb but doesn't always land it. Rousey on the other hand loves the armbar, doesn't try to hide it, and always gets it so she wins.

Best has to be Rousey. Most feared, that is another question. It's tough, because I don't think fighters "fear" getting put into an arm bar. Granted, nobody has been able to escape it yet, so maybe a person knows it's over if Ronda locks up the arm bar.

Having your nose rearranged via Silva knees, or Hendo landing an H bomb, would be a scary thought. You're guaranteed pain, and a headache with either. Also, your face may never look the same again, in the case of Rich Franklin.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

i went with rousey. id rather get KTFO than get my shit broken. i think a guy like rousimar palhares is the scariest finisher. that dude loves to tear ACL's. a guy like that can ruin a career.

I would be most frightened of those hellbows, but as others said, Rousey *always* goes for that armbar yet still gets it. Tough to argue with that kind of success.

Tate's arm, and Vera, Franklin, and Bisping's faces are images that I will never forget. I still haven't voted yet.
