She smiles often, squinting so tightly that her eyes disappear. She cries easily, a girlhood habit she never outgrew. And before each fight she glares at her opponent as if she were getting ready to put a permanent end to a lifelong feud. After the fight, she is all smiles again, and usually unblemished.

The knockout was just brutal, and a stark contrast to the photos of Rousey in Vogue or her promotional pics for The Expendables 3.

UFC Champ Ronda Rousey Sounds Off Before Her UFC Fight

Plus, blood lust seems unseemly to me at this point in my life. But I do feel strongly that as long as even mediocre male athletes make millions of dollars, women ought to be able to do the same.

First, Rousey got called out for going straight to the hospital and skipping the post-fight presser. Selfish, I know.

Or she ends up in jail with a Maori-inspired face tattoo? Blue chip companies that were willing to make the risky crossover to MMA through Rousey might now stay away … Rousey is supposed to star in the Road House remake, which is set to start shooting in early , but projections for the movie likely took a virtual dip.

  • Conor McGregor didn't do so badly, either. Mayweather figured out a 50th opponent Saturday night, letting McGregor have the early rounds before stalking him late and leaving the mixed martial artist defenseless and exhausted on the ropes in the 10th round.

  • But two complicating factors are getting in the way of my wholehearted recommendation: the allegations of terrible work practices at the studio , and the casting of one Ronda Rousey as Sonya Blade.

The expectation that an athlete never lose — never lose! Outside of tennis, I can only think of two marquee female athletes playing today: Brittney Griner, who can freaking dunk and still the details of her personal life top her Google search results ; and Carli Lloyd, who scored three goals in 16 minutes in a World Cup championship.

Because the bar for renown, for lucre, for women, is nearly impossibly high.

Why Kayla Harrison won't suffer the same downfall as Ronda Rousey

I find the unreasonable expectations of Rousey and Greiner, and Lloyd, et. The fighter herself was already talking about taking a break to nurture her budding Hollywood career.
