Lady Violence 2011: Ronda Rousey
What better day than Christmas to name the inaugural hov-mma Lady Violence and King of Violence.
Ronda Rousey opened up her 2011 by submitting her third straight amateur opponent in under a minute via armbar. Come March it was time for Rousey to compete on the professional level. Four fights and four more victims later you are now looking at one of the most dangerous players in WMMA.
Just like in her amateur bouts, Rousey finished all four of her pro bouts in under a minute via armbar submission. She's also stayed busy outside of competition by throwing her name into the mix for a shot against current Women's Strikeforce Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate. The girl the kids are calling "Rowdy" is also very much on the radar of Featherweight Champ Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos.
So is Rousey a one trick pony arm collector or a legit future champion? Maybe all the one time 17 year old World Judo Junior Champion needs is your arm, and less than a minute to work to get the hardware she needs. We are likely to find out in 2012.
