'Best female fighter ever'? Rolling Stone says it's Strikeforce champ Ronda Rousey   [View Full Version]

Ronda Rousey can add Rolling Stone magazine to her ever-growing mass media resume.

Rousey, the unbeaten Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion, makes an appearance in the magazine's most recent issue in a short piece 33 pages in – next to a fellow Olympian in recent U.S. swimming sensation Ryan Lochte.

And Rolling Stone cut right to the chase with the all-caps headline: "The best female fighter ever."

Rousey (6-0 MMA, 4-0 SF) is coming off yet another dominant victory, defending her Strikeforce title for the first time with a 54-second armbar win over former champ Sarah Kaufman this past month in San Diego.

That win came on the heels of her title fight win over Miesha Tate in March, which took what for Rousey has become an almost crazy-by-comparison 4:27 to pull off.

The math is what makes that 4:27 crazy, of course. Rousey's three amateur opponents and five professional opponents outside of Tate lasted a combined 4:56 – an average of 37 seconds each. And as is well-known, all tapped to Rousey's signature armbar...

Well if Rolling Stone said it, then it is completely accurate. Let's give it some more time, she's been champ for just a handfull of months.

Foolish! She has to beat Cyborg or Gina for that matter to claim that title.

She has to beat Cyborg, imo.

Also, I would say that there have been some very skilled female boxers. Are we only talking about MMA?

I don't know about you guys, but Rolling Stone is #1 for me for MMA info. And that's not a shot at you for posting it grappler.

It says fighter, so I didn't consider it MMA-only. I haven't read it so I don't know, but 'ever' kind of shoots down the credibility if it isn't MMA-only, as far as I'm concerned. Ann Wolfe, anybody?

I really wish Ann Wolfe and Laila Ali had fought.

Its cyborg brah, give Rousey Marloes Coenen before you start talking her up to number 1.

tcunningham » Posted 9/30/09 9:33:00PM

if she beats Marloes Coenen and cyborg then yes, but like you guys already said, not yet.

like they said on InsideMMA, Rousey vs Cris Cyborg needs to happen..and it would be fireworks to make it the first female match in the UFC history too..

Anyone listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast? He rants on Rolling Stone all the time. Nothing about them is credible. Saying Rousey is the greatest female fighter of all time is pretty much heresy. She could potentially get there, but she certainly isn't yet.

Chael_Sonnen » Posted 5/25/10 12:40:00PM

The answer is Jon Jones......oops, I mean Sara McMann

I'm not sure if your realise Airkema's sarcasm. If you did, and were just being sarcastic back, then all good, my bad.
