She is not just an Olympic judo medalist, she has become a submission specialist and now throw in she has learned how to throw heavy leather at her opponents. What more does she have to do to win over the neigh sayers?

    Like her or not, she is the best female MMA fighter in the world today, No question.
    Who doesn't like watching her? I think the gripe is that the division is so weak that she has no competition. 34 seconds for $60? No thanks. And her next fight will be against someone she has destroyed twice? No thanks.

    I'd rather pay to watch her in a 36 sec knockout than watching one guy chase another around the ring for 12 rounds.

    The scary thing is she's only going to get better and better with her hands and her ground game is just insane I don't see anyone who can beat her

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.
    It's simple. She is utterly dominant and you will watch for two reasons. To see her continue her domination or to see the first time she is defeated and to watch that history being made.

    Most of the women Rousey has fought have a pretty long professional and amateur background in fighting. Rousey has Olympic experience in judo but she had to fully round out her game to become great.

    She has adapted her style from strictly submission and being averse to standing up and striking to being able to take her opponents greatest attribute and beat them while utilizing it.

    If the card isn't stronger people will stop buying Rousey fights. Rousey is incredible, helluva fighter but her division stinks and that sucks for her and the UFC. I for one wasn't interested in watching two old Nogs, Bigfoot or Struve fight. I haven't bought any Rousey cards since Rousey vs. Tate II and I only got that card mainly for Silva vs Weidman. Hopefully they'll throw another title fight on her next card.

    That is absolutely a bunch of BS. The UFC has been gaining fans over the years, and growing quite fast, even before Ronda came along, and will keep growing long after she's gone. It's just much more entertaining then boxing is. I for one, used to love watching boxing matches all the time, and not just the heavy weights. But now that I've been watching MMA for a good 10 years now, I can barely watch 2 rounds of boxing before I'm channel hopping. What Ronda is doing is obviously great for the UFC, but I honestly think women's MMA is getting more and more popular because guys like to watch chicks fight. It's kinda cool. Rousey or no Rousey, I love when the ladies get after it.
    I couln't agree more, but I would say Rousey does have extra appeal beyond just being female fighter. She is special. She is like watching Tyson in his prime. She's all business, pounces and destroys in seconds. Who would have thought a few years ago the most compelling fighter in and ring would be a women, but she is.

    Several of the undercards were really good if its any consolation for pay per view. Thing is, I want to see her destroy her opponent and so of I pay, I get what I want for my money. Tyson biting off Holyfield's ear and Mayweather and Paq would be times I would have felt ripped off if I had purchased pay per view.

    The card better be stacked or people will stop buying her fights. Rousey vs Tate III isn't a good main event. Unless it's with Cyborg, Rousey fights need to be a co-main event at best.
