    Oh boy, Ronda better be ready, I saw this girl fight in Hawaii and she is a beast.

  2. Artemis Entreri says:

    I hope she knows how to tap quick.

  3. scotty says:

    Olympian vs. Olympian, great marketing tool for Strikeforce and it would get more people to watch! She might get the next shot at Ronda if she gets the win in Nov. I dont think there is anyone really lined up for Ronda at this point besides talk of Cyborg when she is back in Dec. but that prolly wont happen!

  4. hanibal says:

    for those who don’t know sara, she’s not just a great wrestler but a great submission grappler as well and in mma great wrestlers do much better than great judokas
    so expect her to give rousey her toughest fight as you can bet she’ll be the one who determines where the fight goes
    but unfortunately at times she can be as boring as any wrestler!!
