How Sara McMann Will Defend Against Ronda Rousy’s Armbar

Ronda Rousey has won all 8 of her professional MMA matches via armbar. Today we look at how Ronda does her favourite armbar and how to defend against it.

Ronda Rousey’s Juji-Squish Armbar

Defense to the juji-squish

Travis Steven’s, Ronda’s US Olympic teammate and the US Olympic judo coach Jimmy Pedro teach you how to stuff Ronda’s juji gatame. This is done by trapping the leg on your stomach between your own legs and forcing the roll.

Some of the YouTube commenters are convinced that Travis and Jimmy are selling out their teammate. Others are more sensible saying, “I’m pretty sure Meisha was taught and drilled this 1000 times in her training camp (she brought in a high level judo coach). It doesn’t matter, Rousey will get the armbar or transition to something else.”

Will Sara McMann get armbarred like all of Ronda’s past opponents?

Or will the Olympic wrestling silver medalists’ grappling overcome Rousey’s judo based groundwork?

  1. On the one hand, you don’t have to worry about tons of different combinations but on the other if you are
    trying to do a particular move you can end up doing several
    other ones you didn’t want to. Follow this up along with
    something like “Have you ever noticed how the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 is an automatic chronograph. Naruto: The Broken Bond directly follows where the story of Naruto: Rise of a Ninja ended.

  2. Your shoes might not be the first matter you think of afterward
    you start learning to drive, but wearing the incorrect footwear though driving can not lonely create it harder, but
    it can after that be dangerous. Driving instructors tell learners should wear something subsequent to a flat but skinny sole, because you desire to be competent to tone
    the car respond to what youre doing.
