Fighter’s Intrigue

Why does anyone still talk about Ronda Rousey? She was unbeatable until she just got knocked the fuck out. Now she’s just an ordinary fighter. Perhaps she could beat up a lot of dudes, but that’s not saying much.

She’s gotta have other redeeming qualities. Her acting skills sure don’t count (not that the Entourage movie in its entirely wasn’t terrible), and she was never really attractive. So what’s she got going on that people care about?

It’s more about who beat her than the fact that she lost. Rousey lost to Holly Holm and no one saw it coming. Now no one is going to see a fight for the foreseeable future because Dana White is off trying to come up with some scheme to keep people interested.

Short of watching her fight Chuck Liddell or someone past their prime (but still a man), there’s really no reason to pay much attention to Ronda Rousey. It might come off dismissive because she’s a woman but that’s how things work right now.
