Ronda Rousey Wins PNG

“Absolutely, I like that fight. I love that fight. Ronda knows that. I spoke to Ronda and I said, ‘Ronda you will knock Cyborg out. Ronda knocks out ‘Cyborg.’ Even if she fights he with one hand, she beats her. That’s what I believe. That’s an exciting fight. I would love that fight. It’s a great fight, yes. Cyborg is a swinger, she’s tough and she’ll let her hands go and she’ll get into a fight with Ronda and that’s exciting. But I believe in my fighters, they’re the best in the world and I would love to see that fight and if they can make it happen, let her get off that what she’s doing, make it fair and square, come down and they know where Ronda is. I think fans want to see that fight. They want to see an insane striker go up against a polished, precise striker.”

Ronda Rousey’s head-coach, and renowned striking expert, Edmond Tarverdyan wants his star athlete to fight her career nemesis, Cris Cyborg.

And as seen in the quote above, he told ‘The MMA Hour’ yesterday that he believes the UFC champ can best her with one-hand tied behind her back.


Promotional lines and a 10-pound differential are to blame for this bouts failed materialization, but what if… What it?!
