Ronda Rousey is Either High or Crazy. Or Both.

Ronda Rousey is Either High or Crazy. Or Both.

It’s been a great year for women’s MMA thanks to the efforts and star power of Ronda Rousey, who’s parlayed a judo background, a penchant for armbars and a healthy dose of attitude to become the UFC’s first female bantamweight champ and, in the process, elevate the sport as a whole.

But damn, she’s either high on crack, suffering from delusions, or both. Why do I say this? Here’s Yahoo! catching her in the act of spewing gobbledygook:

“In any given moment, under the right circumstance, I think it is possible,” Rousey said of beating [Cain] Velasquez when asked if she thought she could.

“You cannot tell me that it is physically impossible. It is possible that in any given moment that I could beat him. I simply believe in my possibilities.”


Just to make sure we’re all on the same page, this is the UFC 135-pound female champ claiming that, if the stars aligned, she could defeat the UFC’s reigning heavyweight champ, a man who just finished Junior dos Santos and is nearly twice her weight.

Our friends Miriam and Webster define “insanity” as “a deranged state of mind usually occurring as a specific disorder”; “extreme folly or unreasonableness”; “something utterly foolish or unreasonable”. Yeah, that pretty much describes Rousey and her outlandish statements.

Here’s an exhaustive list of circumstances where it is possible for Rousey to defeat Velasquez:

  1. Never.

Any white knights out there want to defend Rousey’s mania?

    I disagree. Here is a list of circumstances in which Rousey might prevail:

    1) Rousey discovers a supplement that adds 130 pounds and turns you into a violent Mexican man
    2) UFC introduces tag-team rules and Rousey is paired with a T-1000 while Cain is paired with Tina Fey
    3) Cain begins smoking crack immediately and doesn’t stop, ever

    Although the symptoms of both of those things are often used to intellectualize just being an asshole in general.

    (And ugly too.)

    dude I could beat rousey up violenty, the trick to beating girls is not to hit them in the face becauser most of them have pretty good chins, you need to wrestle them down and keep them there and they really feel powerless once you do and stop struggling

    Perhaps the mind of a champion requires unrealistic expectations.

    Dude, you’ve got to be joking. She’s an Olympic judo medalist, she would savage you on the ground. And the only way you would end up on the ground in the first place would be after she turned you into a crater.

    I think, unless your just an effortless natural,
    you have to be a bit of an asshole to be good at ass whooping.

    Most normal people just dont walk around with enough fury.
