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.

Fedor has to be considered the greatest heavyweight of all time hands down. Possibly the GOAT as well.

She will never get there but it's good to see her pay respect to the greats in our sport.

^She might be emulating him even if it comes out different. She might also be emulating his entrance, his demeanor, and philosophy.

Oh ffs. What next? She emulates his skin and eye and gi colors? She clearly meant his fighting, stop making excuses for her ridiculous self-aggrandizing

Yeah Fedor showed no-emotion entering a fight, Rhonda has this angry look on her face like she just convinced herself her opponent is evil.

Yes, technically ronda is years superior. Again, grading on a curve. Fedor was never that good, just got lucky with punches a lot. Phone Post

MMA Lives Here -  I fail to see how she emulates Fedor. She doesn't strike. She throws a few arm punches to close the distance and that's it. I don't see her fencing on the feet, judging distance and leaping in with devastating Russian hooks. I don't see her counter striking or throwing leg kicks. I don't understand how she makes that comment without feeling like an ass Phone Post

She says she TRIES to emulate Fedor. I'm not sure what's wrong with that besides the fact people are sick of her on the UG.

She seems to be doing pretty well in MMA utilizing her skill set much like the man she TRIES to emulate.

You really have to be nitpicking to have a big problem with this one.

Jesus you guys are Rough. The girl says her favorite fighter is Fedor and tries to fight like him. No shit her striking is not up to the same level.

I think its great that she does what she can to emulate his style of fighting.

Haters gonna hate.
