Ronda Rousey is, without a doubt, the biggest star the Ultimate Fighting Championship has to offer. However, it wasn’t long ago that the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion was relatively unknown with only a cult following in Strikeforce. “Rowdy” made her transition into the octagon and became the first woman champion in company history and soon, all eyes were on her.
Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos believes she can take some credit for helping boost Rousey out of obscurity before she made the transition to the UFC, though. “Cyborg” believes that Rousey likes to talk trash about fighters just to make it to the next level of fame, much like she is doing with Floyd Mayweather’s name now.
“I think she speaks too much, and doesn’t think before she speaks. Sometimes when she speaks, it don’t make sense,” Cyborg told Mayweather Boxing Channel. “She says ‘I can beat Mayweather’ but if she fought Mayweather, she cannot touch him… She likes to talk. Before she talked bad about me when people don’t know her. Now, she’s using Mayweather for the same thing,” she explained. “It’s her style. She likes to do this, but it’s not my style.”
Do you think Ronda Rousey is using Mayweather’s fame, or was it her hard work in the octagon mixed with her unique personality that got her where she is today? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
