The UFC’s hype videos leading up to UFC 184 -Rousey Vs. Zingano will have you believe that it will be a tough contest for the dominant champion, and I hope it will be – but watching Ronda tool most of her other competitors in a matter of seconds makes me doubtful.
Mind you, my MMAth says that Cat Zingano defeated Tate, Ronda’s only opponent who made it out of the first round, so perhaps the Vegas oddsmakers are off with there -1100 to +800 odds (Rousey favoured). Again, I doubt it, but you never know.
Before we get to the best of Ronda, let’s have a look at the best breakdown videos around. BJJ Scout analyzes hours of footage and breaks down MMA fighters games like no one else.

UFC 168 Rousey vs Tate ko uchi gari – foot sweep
Rousey clinches up with her usual headlock control and left wrist. She taps the close foot with a de ashi barai to judge Tate’s distance, fakes an uchi mata to get a backwards reaction following the movement with a ko uchi gari foot sweep.

Renato Laranja hitting on Honda Housey
Too funny because this is before she knew who Renato was. Renato questions her motives on training with Edgy Bravo (because he’s all about the heefer).
