"Dear Ronda Rousey..."

Sweet smile, A facade?
I thought Saturday nights performance by women's champ Ronda Rousey was nothing short of outstanding!  An absolutely beautiful display of Judo by an ex-Olympian that enabled her to retain the title, all the while showcasing no fewer than half a dozen different throws.  But keen eyed observers noted a slight of sportsmanship that I was going to address, but then my friend Georgette Oden turned me onto MAMA: Martial Arts Mommy Archives and her EXCELLENT article, "Dear Ronda Rousey."  We all enjoy a good fight and I am totally down with rivalry and a bit of shit talk, but at the end of the day we are all one.  We are all martial artists...or at least we are supposed to be.  Check out Jenn's great letter to Ronda:

"I get it, you don't like the girl. She said some pretty insulting things about your training staff, people whom you consider family. I am not asking you to buy her a beer after the fight. But couldn't you have at least shown some professionalism during that one moment? You just won, after all. And no matter how justified you are to hate her, not shaking Miesha Tate's hand just looks, well bitchy."

  1. Like I said, she is the champion but she is no martial artist. there are a lot of punks out there who can fight, but it dose not make them martial artist. Ronda Rousey is a lousy sports woman.

  2. All this Rousey dissing sounds like loser talk. Champ gets to act she wants, cuz she's the champ. That's it.
