White: Rousey is a finisher (like Tyson)

Thursday, January 24, 2013

According to White, much like former boxing Hall of Fame champion and all-around intimidator, Mike Tyson, Rousey is the type of fighter who 90 perecent of the combat sports community want to see perform because they know that someone is going to be “executed.”

His words:

“There are grinders. We got guys like Roy Nelson who say that all that matters is winning; doesn’t matter how you win, just as long as you win. [But] I would say me and 90% of the fight community like people who are finishers. We were just talking before this interview about who? Mike Tyson. Why did everybody like Mike Tyson? Because he had fantastic boxing skills and loved to go the distance? No, because when you watched a Mike Tyson fight, you knew somebody was about to be executed. When Tyson would walk into an arena you would get goose bumps. As a fight fan those are the kind of fighters you like. And trust me when I tell you, Ronda Rousey is that person.”
