Jake Ellenberger: ‘Ronda is freakishly strong, she would beat a lot of guys’


“She’s one of those people that works really, really hard. I guess I didn’t really realize that until I had spent more time around her in the gym. I could even say she probably works harder than the majority of the people in this sport.

She is freakishly strong. People thought I was crazy when I said she would beat a lot of guys in her weight class, but she really is extremely strong. It’s functional strength, too. It’s not just a typical kind of strength, there’s so much functional strength in her hips from judo. It’s not that ‘bro/brah’ strength from the biceps and triceps you see in So-Cal. You know, those guys that look good but have zero skills. All show, no go.”

In a recent interview with MMA Sentinel, UFC welterweight, Jake Ellenberger discussed his relationship with female bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey.

Think she could hang with the fellas at 135?
