    MSN's flavor of the month as to who might beat Ronda is Holly Holm. They're insane.

    Rousey after knocking out Correia: 'Don't cry...'

    I guess that's what Correia was telling Ronda at the weigh ins/promos.

    She's just much better than everyone she's faced. She works harder, fights harder.

    She's really the one paving the way for the person that will beat her. If she doesn't hang them up before her successor has the chance.

    Buy rates wise... Monthly UFC PPV is just too much IMO.

    Brock Lesnar is still the unmatched king for UFC PPV drawing power.
    If CM Punk can do anything in MMA then he will help their buy rate.
    His first fight might set records for them, if he wins then he will be a huge draw.
    They def need guys to string along some dominant wins. As far as popularity, I always do the mom test. If my mom knows who you are, you're a real crossover star. My mom knows who Ronda rousey is.

I've heard plenty of names over the years, but none seem to stay on top (or are interesting enough) to be a cross over star. Partially, this is unavoidable due to a lack of history and trying to create a foothold in a really crowded market, but for the good of mma, I think people should want rousey to mow through a few more chicks before she's really challenged. Her popularity and notoriety continue to grow. Let her reach legendary status before someone cuts her down. When it comes to these sorts of sports, people like greatness.

    Bingo!

    The only good thing unlike boxing you do get 5 to 6 other fights for the money. But this was weak card and should have been on Fox.

    I don't get the appeal of paying $50 to watch the main eventer win in less than a minute. It's a waste of money. Rousey has a long amateur background while her opponents don't. That's why she dominates, because she doesn't have any experienced opponents. It's dull. I guess it's good for Dana White that she's around since the male fighters have begun fighting boring, risk averse fights the last few years. UFC is in trouble once Rousey loses or retires.

    You sound like the hooker I tried to pick up the other night.

    Bethe sealed her fate when she made the comment about suicide a few months ago.
    I was stunned Rousey didn't just torture for a round and then knock her out.

    People need to learn to stop talking before fighting Rousey.
