So, after throwing out an open challenge, and having it answered by many BJJ practitioners who were willing to step up and defend their art - among them, the monster Gabi Garcia (pictured above,) Ronda Rousey is recently quoted as saying:

Quote :
If people want to pay me as much as what I get paid in the UFC to go roll with them, I’d go do that too! But I’ve got movies, I’ve got fights, and I just don’t have the time to put in a grappling training camp. They’re only upset because they think they can beat me, so why shouldn’t I be just as upset at their opinion thinking they could beat me? Why are they so much more entitled to their opinion than mine?

Sorry, Ronda - I'm still a fan, but I can't help but see this as a cop out. As far as entitlement to an opinion, that can't be argued. Then again, none of those women (including Gabi) issued a blanket statement saying they thought they could defeat any woman Judoka, Gi or No Gi.

The way I see it, Ronda shot her mouth off, and when called upon to back those words up, she failed to toe the line.

I got the same feeling when I read that quote from Ronda... but man, I still don't think when Ronda said she could beat any BJJ woman practitioner that she meant ANY woman period.

I took it to mean any woman in her weight class... but any does mean all, doesn't it.

I mean how could a woman of 135 lbs go up against a woman well over 200 lbs... and I don't know exactly what Gabi Garcia weighs, but she's got to be north of 220 lbs.

With all of that said... the reply from Ronda does sound like a cop-out.

As far as her weight goes, her competition weight was recently listed as 236 - but I've seen pics where it looked like she was well over 250.
Right now, I'd guess she is probably in the 220-ish range, because she's supposed to be cutting down to 205 for a fight later this year, and in the pics she's put up on Instagram lately, she looks very lean and ripped.
