McMann: Rousey not 'unstoppable'


In less than two years as a professional, Ronda Rousey has won all seven of her bouts by arm bar in the first round. She has looked almost unstoppable against all of her opponents, but fellow women's fighter Sara McMann thinks she might not be as unstoppable as people think.

So, what makes McMann’s pedigree that much more threatening than those of Tate and Zingano? Simple—her wrestling.

Tate may have been a state wrestling champion in high school, but McMann’s accomplishments dwarf that blurb on Tate’s resume. To start, McMann was a national champion in high school and earned a silver medal in the 2004 Olympic Games. She’s also racked up a litany of other accomplishments including gold medals at the Pan American Games as well as medals in submission grappling events.

In other words, her resume in wrestling is very similar to Rousey’s in judo, which would make her, at least on paper, the best opponent for Rousey.

So what does the Underground think? Does McMann's Olmypic level athleticism and skill set make her the one with the best chance of taking down Ronda Rousey?

She has said she like a few more fights, but she wasn't directly offered the fight.She's right IMO.

McMann refuted that and said she never was offered a fight with Rousey.

I thought McMann had already turned down a fight with Rousey saying she wasn't ready??

Dana is going to be so pissed if McMann holds Rousey down for 5 full rounds and wins.

Kayla Harrison fights in judo at -78KG. That's 171 pounds. She's not a small girl but do you think she can get down to 135?
