Also Gina Carano already kind of did this same thing a few years ago so its not some historical fight.
you gotta admit what ronda is doing is on another level than what gina did. before gina got tooled by cyborg she was 7-0 with 4 stopages and 3 decisions. ronda is now 7-0 with 7 first round arm bars.
She seems to be a great fighter, albeit a one move fighter, but it really works well for her. Doesn't make it a historical fight though. Also the fighter Rousey beat tonight is now 2-3 in her last 5, so not as if she beat some great fighter. Gina did get beat but Cyborg was a juicer and got banned for a year, so really wasn't a fair fight.
