Rousey: ‘I’m also the best striker’

“My MMA striking is the best in the game. It definitely is a challenge. With judo I spent so many years with a certain posture that the hardest thing was adjusting it. I’ve reached a certain level of competition where what’s required out of striking to come into the clinch to grapple is a lot more complicated than at the lower levels. It requires much more high-level footwork and striking to be able to use grappling at all… It’s a younger side of the sport that’s still developing. It’s going to need a little more time before we can reach the same standard the guys are at because they had a big head start.”

In a recent interview with USA Today (Courtesy MMAJunkie.com), UFC bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey proclaimed herself as the best female striker in the business.

Rousey has finished all her fights via submission. Have we yet to see the best of the champ?

    i totally understand the necessity to have the utmost confidence in yourself in mma, but she is delusional if she truly thinks she can strike better than all the other female mma fighters in the world.

  2. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    She is the best looking striker in mma..

  3. muscleman says:

    good lord

    Ummmm…Ronda, ANYONE looks good SHADOW BOXING. Shadows and heavy bags don’t hit back. You were out-striked by Miesha Tate in your last fight. She had you scrambling and ducking the stand up game when she tagged you with combos. You are NOT better than Sarah Kaufman, Cat Zingano, Alexis Davis, Cyborg, or Miesha Tate when it comes to striking. At least when they get hit, they don’t run and duck for cover.

      She is the Brock Lesnar of women’s MMA.

    • Daniel Lostinmymind Kimble says:

      Actually, anyone tries to move when someone tries to hit them. It does not take skill to be a punching bag. As for those that say Tate outstruck her in the last fight, tates face was pretty beat up after the fight. Rousey looked much better. SHe is def not the best striker, or even in the top 20 best strikers, but she is the champion, and she beats the strikers every time.

    I’ve seen bums on the street show better striking technique than her. What a delusional idiot.
