Now Ranked, Rousey Hopes To Increase Pound-For-Pound Status

December 18, 2013 11:00 am by BJPENN.COM News

“I was actually really surprised [to be added to the UFC’s pound-for-pound rankings]– a friend of mine told me yesterday and I wasn’t really expecting it. I thought that they wouldn’t include me on the top pound one until after I beat Miesha — kinda cool that I got on there a little early it’ll be nice to see if it changes at all after this fight and I move up on it even more.”

GSP’s exodus from the sport of Mixed Martial Arts left a void in the UFC’s official pound-for-pound rankings.

That void was filled by UFC bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, who recently debut on the rankings as the 10th ranked pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world.

We recently put up a poll about the matter and fans are split down the middle in regards to her legitimacy as a pound-for-pound great. You can view the results and cast your own vote HERE.
