It's funny how quickly Ronda Rousey went from being the impatient line-jumper of women's MMA to its superstar messiah.

Remember where she was this time last year? Remember back when Miesha Tate was the Strikeforce women's 135-pound champ and UFC President Dana White seemed pretty certain that women would never fight inside the octagon? Back then the story was how Rousey, who'd logged only 138 seconds of cage time as a professional, had talked her way into a title fight that she didn't deserve, a fight that was "pretty ridiculous," according to former Strikeforce champ Sarah Kaufman.

Even Tate, who stood to gain a lot from the rivalry Rousey had intentionally drummed up with her, bristled at the way the trash-talking judoka had gone about grabbing such a share of the spotlight.

Can you guys give it a rest for a while now?  The fight is over.


I'd say if you're looking to avoid hearing about Ronda Rousey.. you'll probably just want to stay off of MMA sites for at least the next week. Or deal with it.
