    If you do not like watching a fighting technician such as Ronda Rousey fight, you know little about fighting and what she has put into her training to become the machine that she has become. 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.

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

        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.

            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.

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.
                The biggest draw is going to be Conor McGregor. And the great thing about the UFC there are always new comers that will show up and shine

                  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.

                    That all depends on if he beats Aldo. If he beats him then he will be a mega watt draw. If he loses it will stop his momentum a bit.

                      As someone who is a big sports fan, but not an mma fan, the only interesting person in the sport is rousey. 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.

                        The shot to the ear put her the efff out.

                              You had Bones Jones rising to that level until he refused to fight Sonnen as a replacement and UFC had to cancel an event. Once that happened his appeal was nerfed. GSP, Spider Silva before he got knocked loopy by Weidman and Jones before he went WWE heel on UFC fans were top draws.

                              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.
