The UFC will never pair a man vs. a woman, but there is a member of the current roster that believes UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey could hang with men.
In fact, Jake Ellenberger actually believes that “Rowdy” could defeat male members of the bantamweight division.
“She is freakishly strong,” said Ellenberger, during a recent interview with MMA Sentinel. “People thought I was crazy when I said she would beat a lot of guys in her weight class, but she is really extremely strong.
“She’s one of those people that works really hard. I didn’t realize that until I had spent more time around her in the gym.”
Rousey’s accomplishments are pretty well known by now, as she is a perfect 9-0 inside the cage. She finished fellow Olympic medalist Sara McMann this past February in the first round, earning her first victory by something other than armbar.
