Fedor’s Not Impressed — Rousey Misses Too Many Punches, Women Shouldn’t Be Fighting

August 7, 2015 1:11 pm by BJPENN.COM News


UFC’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is a star, simple as that. Bedsides perhaps Conor McGregor, there isn’t anyone in MMA that can match her star power and global reach.

However, one MMA legend isn’t much of a fan and actually thinks Rousey shouldn’t even be fighting, because she’s a girl.

Fedor Emelianenko is not a fan of WMMA and has been outspoken in the past about it. Recently at a youth forum, he was asked a question about the champ and had this to say:

“To date, [Rousey] stands out as number one in the world rankings. But I do not like that she misses a lot of punches, which leads to painful reception. I do not advocate such tactics, especially for women.”
