Is Ronda Rousey a bitch?

I know, I know. Girls get called bitches all the time, for lots of non-bitchy shit. It seems like a woman can’t disagree or be opinionated or put their foot down about something without the B word getting tossed around like Nate Diaz when he fought Rory MacDonald (relevant). But my textbook definition of ‘bitch’ is someone who treats people like shit for no good reason at all. Let’s look at some quotes from Ronda Rousey’s latest interview to see if they apply:

God, did you see Miesha hitting mits with her pet boyfriend? It was like I was embarrassed watching it to be in the same category of professional sports as her. That’s the least professional thing I’ve seen in my life, is like hitting mits with your professional boyfriend who’s never done anything in his life but date you.

And regarding Cris Cyborg:

This is legit chicks and legit competition. Not some roided up cheater against some truck stop waitress I’ve never heard of. That chick – I thought I recognized her from serving me french toast in Montana once. But I must be wrong.

Yeah, we know Ronda hates Miesha Tate and Bryan Caraway. But that truck stop waitress never did Ronda no wrong. She just agreed to step up and face Cyborg after her original opponent was injured. Was it a squash match? Sure. But why be a bitch to someone who’s just trying to carve out their own little piece of the MMA dream, no different than Ronda herself?

It’s just the latest in a series of somewhat off-putting statements from Ronda. I didn’t like shit like that when I heard it in high school and I still don’t enjoy it much now. Fortunately, Miesha Tate isn’t gonna be coaching in the TUF house so that saves us from having to watch Ronda go full Mean Girls on her. But will that stop Rousey from revealing her true self over the course of the season?

    It’s okay because she was teased in high school…

  • Ronda Fan

    She just doesn’t give a fuck and I think it’s kinda cool for a change.

  • Crucial

    So glad someone´s finally saying this. Ronda has done a great job talking her way to the top, and I can´t deny the fact that she´s extremely talented, but yeah I am way sick of her crap and I am happy to see that I´m not the only one who´s over it. Btw, this site is hilarious and awesome and just gets better by the day!

    muck. you’re raking it.

  • SHORT_BUS

    If Ronda looks like Sarah Kaufman are we still talking about her and posting stories every time she speaks? Enough with this chick already. Until she fights Cyborg, I have no sue for her.

    Bitch here.

    While I appreciate the Arm Collector, I’ve always been a bit put off by Rousey. Maybe she’s frontin’, maybe the attitude’s for real, but I kind of cringe that the emissary of WMMA in the UFC won’t give credit where credit is due.

    Maybe I’m a softie, but I enjoyed Zingano’s speech after the brawl where she admitted she’s always looked up to Miesha and was fucking scared of her… but bashed in Tate’s face anyway.

    That being said, Rousey has a helluva staredown bitchface.

    I would love to see Ronda put in her place

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Ronda’s in the same court as most fighters/athletes – I don’t care about your opinions any more than care about your actions when they leave the realm of what you’re good at.

    When Honda fights I’ll be there to watch, otherwise stay the fuck out of my feed reader.

    i thought she was cute until that mic appeared. now she gross. i’m so vain. thanks for making me understand myself better, ronda and fightlinker.

  • Reverend Clint

    in my experience most people who are high level for a long time get a little weird plus she is a woman which only adds to it

  • Bass

    I think it’s hilarious that shit articles like this are cool (mocking a fighter’s personality and name calling), but Subo can’t issue a strongly worded criticism of a journalist’s work ethic without being censored. You goofy fucks.

  • Higgz

    Clint, I’m just curious, what kind of experience do you have with high level people getting weird? You gotta expand your circle of friends, dude! haha

  • Doogie Howser, M.D.

    I believe Ronda’s about 90% less clever than she thinks she is, which doesn’t help much. She says stupid stuff because she’s stupid.

    She’s always struck me as someone who doesn’t have much to say as there is not much intelligent brain activity going on behind those glassy, soul-less eyes, but opens her mouth and says stuff anyway. Because dicks keep thrusting microphones in front of her.

    ^^Doogz is on the money.

    Rousy is such garbage, I never knew.
