Jake Ellenberger: ‘Ronda is freakishly strong, she would beat a lot of guys’


“She’s one of those people that works really, really hard. I guess I didn’t really realize that until I had spent more time around her in the gym. I could even say she probably works harder than the majority of the people in this sport.
