UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey returns at UFC 193 this weekend, and she’s been warming up on this poor guy…
It’s a big weekend for the UFC in Melbourne, Australia, as the promotion heads to the Etihad Stadium to attempt a record breaking show. UFC 193 is headlined by Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm for the promotion’s women’s bantamweight title.
‘Rowdy’ is being hailed as
the second coming of Christ the most dominant athlete on the planet, and whether you like her or not, her recent performances have seriously solidified that moniker.
Her last fight was at UFC 190, where she absolutely destroyed and knocked out Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds.
So the undisputed 135-pound queen of the UFC continues her quest for all-time legendary status, but she faces a serious threat in the ex-boxing champion Holly Holm. ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ has some serious chops in the striking department, a danger that ‘Rowdy’ really hasn’t come across yet in the UFC octagon.
Many fans and pundits have been discussing the boxing of Rousey in recent times, and Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya says he has big plans for Rousey as a future professional boxer.
So how is the striking of Ronda Rousey shaping up? Well, much like her Judo skills, the boxing prowess of the champ is on full display during the UFC 193 open workouts.
Watch ‘Rowdy’ toss this poor dude around like he was a kid, and blast the pads for the fans in Australia. Video courtesy of MMADigest:
Wow. The former Olympic bronze medallist in Judo has some serious skills, and it will be interesting to see if Holm’s perceived striking advantage does translate in the title fight with Rousey.
