What's next for MMA superstar Rousey?


September 24, 2014

    Ever since entering the MMA scene, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey has dominated each of her opponents with some of the best judo the sport has seen since the days of Fedor Emelianenko, with impressive jiujitsu to cap it off. She’s won all of her fights with an armbar submission except for her last two, which ended in TKO and KO. Miesha “Cupcake” Tate was Rousey's only competitor to take her out of the first round.
    Ronda only seems to be getting better every time she fights. After blowing up in the MMA community she’s gone on to Hollywood to make a few movies, so she doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
    So what’s next for the women’s MMA superstar? She seems to be eyeing two options at the moment. Bethe Correia has defeated two of Rousey’s training partners — a group known as “The Four Horsewomen” — and holds a 9-0 fight record. Correia has expressed her interest in taking out Rousey and Rousey has returned the notion. This fight could happen in Correia’s home turf of Brazil, which Rousey welcomes, saying she “think[s] it would be an amazing event and would love to be a part of it.”
       Rousey’s second option right now is participating in Metamoris, a Brazilian jiujitsu promotion where athletes compete in 20-minute submission-only matches. She says she would love to compete in the next Metamoris, but only if they would pay her the same amount she makes for a UFC fight.
    In addition, the UFC have their own plans in mind. They’re looking to sign Gina Carano, former Strikeforce Women’s Lightweight Champion turned Hollywood actress, for an immediate title shot against Rousey, which I would absolutely love to see — not to mention the huge amount of money the UFC could make off such an event.
    Whichever way Ronda Rousey decides to go, I look forward to watching her compete in any arena because she always puts on a show. Who would you like to see her fight next?
