Ronda Rousey breaks reporter’s ribs (and nuts)
Aaron Tru, host of a MMA Prime web show, tries to trash talk UFC champ Ronda Rousey a little bit. Rousey then executes a perfect judo flip and breaks his ribs.
Not exactly sure what he thought was going to happen.
Pro tip: Don’t tell Ronda Rousey she can’t do something. The UFC superstar was being interviewed by Aaron Tru — host of a MMA Prime web show — recently when the reporter uttered presumably the most regrettable words of his life.
Ronda Rousey breaks reporter’s ribs
“I’m gonna be honest, I don’t think you have enough strength and could compete with a man,” Tru said. Four broken ribs later, we’re guessing Tru is singing a different tune. Rousey laughed off his sentiment before executing a judo flip and leaving him in a world of pain.
In August 2008, Rousey competed at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. She lost her quarterfinal to the Dutch ex-world champion Edith Bosch but qualified for a Bronze medal match through the repechage bracket. Rousey defeated Annett Boehm by Yuko to win a bronze medal. With the victory, Rousey became the first American to win an Olympic medal in women’s judo since its inception as an Olympic sport in 1992.
Rousey began Judo with her mother at the age of 11. Rousey trained with her mother until she was 13 after accidentally breaking her mother’s wrist. At 17, Rousey qualified for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, becoming the youngest judoka in the entire Games.
Rousey retired from judo at 21 after the Olympics. After winning her Olympic medal, Rousey shared a studio apartment with a roommate in Venice Beach, California and worked three jobs as a bartender and cocktail waitress to support herself and her dog.
