Rousey tries to emulate Fedor when she fights


Ronda Rousey is a perfect 7-0 in professional MMA, and overall 9-0 in her career, with nine first round submissions by armbar. Seven of those armbars have been before the first minute of the first round. The feat is unrivaled in mixed martial arts.

Fedor Emelianenko was at one-time considered the best heavyweight on the planet, winning 28 bouts in a row over eight years. Emelianenko was an inspiration to Rousey, who tries to do her best to emulate him in her fights:

“My favorite fighter to watch ever I would say is Fedor Emelianenko,” Rousey said during a Facebook chat sponsored by Metro PCS on Wednesday.

“He’s always going to be my favorite.  It was the first highlight reel I ever saw of MMA.  I loved his style and how he came from a Judo-Sambo background, and I really try to emulate his style every time that I fight,” said Rousey.

I see her more like a female Royce Gracie , coming in and representing an almost pure single martial art. Being so good at it that she forces people into that game and destroys them with it.
