Ronda Rousey ‘Concerned’ About UFC 170 PPV Buys

 
Ronda Rousey is concerned.
 
Sure, she’s the biggest thing to hit the UFC since Kimbo Slice’d bread.  Sure, the fans love to love her, or love to hate her. But too much of a good thing isn’t always a good thing.
 
I get concerned,” Rousey said during the open workouts for UFC 170, which will take place this Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada. “I do have my concerns about this pay-per-view (PPV). It’s a really quick turnaround, which means that I didn’t really give people a chance to miss me. It’s coming after two huge PPVs, the Super Bowl card and the New Year’s [Eve] card. And when I’m the headliner, all the pressure really does fall on me to deliver.”
 
Boy does it ever.
 
You see, at one point in time, Ronda had a co-main event to fall back on: Rashad Evans taking on the new-to-light heavyweight Daniel “it’s alright to cry” Cormier. But once Rashad had to pull out due to a knee injury, the UFC saw fit to replace him with a coffee shop barista. A coffee shop barista that will have 9 days to prepare for a fight with an undefeated UFC powerhouse like Cormier. Although, if you believe the UFC’s marketing department, you would think that Cummins is some kind of long-lost juggernaut villain from Cormier’s past, and that Cormier is ready to exact his terrible revenge on the man who once – gasp – made him emotionally upset about losing the imaginary Olympics.
 
If I were Ronda, I would be worried too. Sure, the women’s bantamweight champion squaring off against fellow Olympic medalist Sara McMann is sure to pull in viewers. And watching Cormier move down to the light heavyweight division is going to be interesting to watch, no matter who he’s facing. But if the UFC continues to stress out their number one PPV draw with quick turnarounds and almost-unknown co-main event fighters (which will truly tell us if she’s as big of a draw as the UFC thinks), one of these times she’s going to take a trip to Hollywood and never come back.
 
Maybe Batroc the Leaper could use an evil henchman.

    Yeah you’re just saying what we all know; you aren’t that big a draw and you don’t have Anderson or any other big stars to bail you out this time.

  2. magoo says:

    Lmao, it was a quick turn around and you didn’t give people a chance to miss you wtf?…
    Nothing like loving yourself, but hey you have the best stand up in mma you said so,and let’s not forget your the biggest star the ufc has ever had… not to mention you think that you could beat Cain Valasquez…lol.. I’m sure your star power and fat fat head headlining 170 will get you 750,000 ppvs (yea right), your Brock,Anderson and GSP all rolled up into one! Hope you fall on your face twice Sat night, once from a McMann beating, and once from one of the worse ppv#s in history, PS your the greatest Ronda Lousey. Smh!

I don’t agree with everything she does but that doesn’t have anything to With her being a beast in the cage… She can scrap.. she’s ran through everybody she’s fought ..

        • Sasquatch says:

          She’s going to run into a wall if she ever fights Cyborg, but we all know her sugar daddy Dana will NEVER let that happen.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        Hell Yah, I’m buying……and Everybody I know is too!! This will be a great card. A lot of game on here. You posters will be sad you didn’t!!

        Now, to TittyDaddy: Hey punk, you fuckin sanctimonious hypocrite. You fry magoo for his harshness and then you go around slinging it yourself you little shitwad. Quit cryin’ and name calling and debate it asshole. Is all you got are insults? Did your mommy breast feed you until you were 8? Little puke… By the way, I have no sheep and Sasquatch hates me more than magoo…maybe!!….lmao…

        • Sasquatch says:

And you bastards, kick out men and women’s ass outta the Hockey Olympics…Shit, now to think about it I fuckin’ hate Canadians..at least Canadian badass hockey players…lol.

  3. Steven Thurman says:

    Does this”journalist ” not like DC?

  4. WalnutCreekScott says:

    She has reason to be worried. People are finally getting tired of her and her opinions on everything including herself.

  5. Snowy Jones says:

    UFC complain about piracy yet think people wanna pay $60 to watch a nobody in the co-main event and somehow think rousey is a star,she is a boring egotistical **** with no personality or class and they think people actually wanna c her in a main event,theyre gonna come crashing to earth this weekend coz if u feed people garbage they’re not gonna pay for it!!

  6. Nick says:

    am i the only one that thinks the Rousey pay per view draw isnt anywhere ner as big as DW seems to make it out to be. I dont think Ive ever talked to anyone about a UFC card about what fight they were looking forward to the most and Rouseys name came out of their mouth…

  7. swaxbagga says:

    I must admit when womens mma hit the ufc, I thought it was gonna be terrible. Give credit to where it is due, there have been some pretty dam good fights, but headling $55 pay per views with no undercard pffff laughable. When a damian maia fight should be the right full headliner, than the ufc had better go back to the drawing bord. The most interesting thing about this card at this point is what will the pay per view buys be?

  8. scott k says:

    Ronda rocks…. and you don’t… haha
