Ronda Rousey crushed Cat Zingano in 14 seconds (new record) like she crushes hot wings after her fights.
Not totally unexpected considering the fights question to be answered was: what happens when the daughter of a world champion judoka who got woken up in the middle of the night by her mothers armbars as a child grows up, trains all her life, wins bronze at the Olympics and then trains MMA with the worlds best trainers (***big breath***) fights someone who essentially started out training mma in 2008 as a hobby and as a way to keep in shape?
Well here’s the entire paragraph-question distilled in a 14 second GIF.
-Cat charges with a flying knee
-Ronda sidesteps and gets the head and arm clinch
-Cat uses her momentum to throw Ronda with the underhook with a sort of o goshi
-Ronda’s judo muscle memory kicks in and cartwheels out of the throw to avoid landing on her back (landing on your back is a lost match in judo)
-Ronda uses the momentum to get to side control
-Cat quickly gets to her knees but Ronda steps over
-Cat tries to shuck Ronda off her back and in doing so leaves her arm behind undefended
-Ronda laces her arm over Cat’s, steps the other leg over Cat’s head and secures a very tight straight arm lock
Of course the Gracie’s do a very detailed and technical breakdown
I like watching Ronda fight but I need to stop buying these pay per views. At $50 per 14 seconds I’ve essentially paid the equivalent of $12,857 per hour.
$50/14 sec = $3.57/sec.
$3.57/sec * 3600 sec/hour = $12,857/hour
What did you think of the fight? Should Ronda start fighting men??
