Highlights! Ronda Rousey Loses At WrestleMania 35

Check out highlights from Ronda Rousey’s WrestleMania 35 main event with Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.

Ronda Rousey may have been the catalyst for the first all women’s WrestleMania main event, but that didn’t stop the WWE from picking “The Man” Becky Lynch for the winner. Five hours into WrestleMania 35 (seven if you count the kickoff portion), Rousey took on Lynch and Charlotte Flair in a winner take all fatal three way. For 20 minutes the three women battered each other in the ring, but in the end it was Lynch pinning Rousey for the win and both WWE women’s titles.

Take a look at some of the highlights:

What’s next for Ronda Rousey is unclear. Rumors that she would be leaving the WWE following WrestleMania 35 have followed the former UFC champ for months, with Rousey not exactly denying them outright.

”I really don’t feel like I should have to respond to that kind of thing,” she told ESPN at the end of January. “It’s my vagina, my life, keep the speculations to yourself. Leave me and my reproductive organs alone.”

”I’ve not kept it a secret that I would definitely want to start a family,” Rousey continued. “But how do you go about doing that? I love this way more than I thought that I would. So do you just keep going until you just happen to get pregnant? Or should you stop and go try and get pregnant? Or is going and trying to get pregnant putting yourself on the spot and then you’re less likely to get pregnant? I’ve never had a baby before, I don’t know these kinds of things.

”There’s a lot of things up in the air. A lot of decisions that we’ve gotta make as a family. I’m trying to figure it out as I go along.”

With Rousey dropping her belt, she’s now free to go off and make that family bigger. Keep your eyes peeled for more on her fake fighting future.

Amanda Nunes: Bout vs. Cyborg ‘Definitely Bigger Than the Ronda Rousey Fight’

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes has seen her share of high-profile bouts.

Watch Ronda Rousey Win A WWE Belt At Summerslam

Rousey becomes just the third person in history to hold both a WWE and UFC title.

Much like her early matches in MMA, Ronda Rousey just tore through her opposition quick to take a championship belt. This time it was the WWE’s RAW Women’s Championship title, which she took off Alexa Bliss in a five minute squash match that ended with (what else?) an armbar.

The whole affair was a bit anti-climactic. Bliss offered no real offense and took three or four bumps before Rousey mangled her arm and forced a tap. The ending had shades of Rousey’s first fight against Miesha Tate, where Ronda snapped Miesha’s arm backwards. We’ll have to get back to you on the time, but I think the celebration actually lasted longer than the match itself.

With the victory, Ronda Rousey joins Ken Shamrock and Brock Lesnar as they only athletes to win titles in both the WWE and UFC.

Ronda Rousey Steals The Show At WWE “Money In The Bank”

Former UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey entered the WWE with mixed reviews.

However, just months into her pro wrestling career, the former Olympian has propelled herself to the top of the list in terms of must-see TV.

On Sunday night, Rousey took on champion Nia Jax at the “Money in the Bank” event from just outside Chicago. And while she was unable to secure the title, Rousey earned raving reviews for her work:

Watch Ronda Rousey Get Ragdolled By Nia Jax

Ronda Rousey just got a shot at the RAW women’s championship. Here’s how that went.

Ronda Rousey had her second full match in the WWE this Sunday at Money In The Bank, and it was another strong showing for the former UFC champion.

Rousey faced off against RAW women’s champion Nia Jax in a back and forth match that ended with Ronda seconds away from winning the belt with an armbar, only to have Alexa Bliss show up and smack her in the head with a briefcase to steal the win. Pro wrestling!

Rousey continues to impress for a greenhorn that’s new to the wrestling game. This was the first time she’s wrestled a full match sans tag partner, and she looked like she belonged in the co-main of a WWE pay-per-view. Nia Jax spent a good amount of the match beating on Ronda, and Rousey ragdolled realistically across her new stage, taking some huge bumps and selling them well.

Another highlight of the match featured Rousey tossing Jax with a legit judo throw. More of this please thank you!

But any MMA fan is going to have a hard time overlooking the ridiculous armbars Rousey was using through the match. For some reason the WWE has decided to cartoonify the submission, resulting in several eye rolling moments during the bout. Why they wouldn’t just do it, like, for realsies, I have no idea. But they don’t, and it is awful.

Ronda Rousey Reacts To UFC Hall Of Fame Induction

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, may have been chased from the 135-pound division by Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes, but there would be no Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes if not for the trail blazed by “Rowdy.”

Others came before her, like ex-Strikeforce headliner Gina Carano, as well as Japanese sensation Megumii Fuji and regional powerhouse Tara LaRosa, but Rousey was able to bring women’s mixed martial arts (MMA) to the Octagon, where it currently thrives across four different weight classes.

Not surprisingly, the promotion will induct her into the UFC Hall of Fame in July.

“This is an immense honor, to not only take part in bringing women to the forefront of this sport, but now the Hall of Fame,” Rousey wrote on social media. “May I be the first of many.”

After hanging up the gloves in 2017 — which we are not allowed to refer to as “retirement” — Rousey (12-2) crossed over to the world of professional wrestling, inking a longterm deal with WWE and making her WrestleMania debut back in April.

Maybe she can complete the second of these three goals by the end of the year.

Ronda Rousey to Be Inducted Into UFC Hall of Fame

Regardless of whether you loved her or hated her, you can’t deny that Ronda Rousey changed the face of the sport.

When Dana White declared that the UFC would never let women into the Octagon, Rousey broke down the cage door with a superstar persona and an unstoppable armbar. And when the UFC needed stars to light the way as old heroes faded, she assumed the role like she was meant for it.

So of course Rousey is going to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. She deserves it. More so than most, she deserves it.

Here’s the UFC’s official release:

“ROWDY” RONDA ROUSEY MAKES HISTORY
AS FIRST WOMAN SELECTED FOR INDUCTION INTO UFC® HALL OF FAME

Las Vegas – UFC® today announced that former UFC and Strikeforce® women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame’s ‘Modern Wing’ as a member of the class of 2018. The 2018 UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Thursday, July 5, at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The event will be streamed live and exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS® starting at 7 p.m. PT.

“There would be no women in UFC without Ronda Rousey,” UFC President Dana White said. “Ronda is an absolute pioneer who helped me personally, and a lot of other people, look at women in combat sports differently. She accomplished everything she set out to do with UFC and became a global icon and role model in the process. Today, the women’s divisions are packed with incredibly talented fighters and they produce some of the best fights you’ll ever see. We’re proud to announce Ronda as the first woman to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.”

“This is an immense honor, to not only take part in bringing women to the forefront of this sport, but now the UFC Hall of Fame,” Rousey said. “May I be the first of many.”

Behold the Greatness That is Amanda Nunes Crushing Ronda Rousey

UFC female bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes is headlining UFC 224 this weekend. And though she’ll be facing Raquel Pennington, and the bout takes place in her home-country of Brazil, the only storyline that matters – will ever matter – is that Nunes once beat the crap out of Ronda Rousey.

Seriously, Nunes could retire tomorrow, and still those highlight reels will show her crushing Rousey like an annoying bug.

Let’s set the scene, shall we?

When Nunes faced Rousey at UFC 207, the former was the champ and the latter the challenger, because Holly Holm had head-kicked the belt away from Rousey, then Miesha Tate choked Holm, and Nunes pounded out Tate. But despite her challenger status, Rousey was far and away the star of the show. She was, after all, the reason there were females fighting in the Octagon.

Unfortunately, the pressures of fame bore down heavily on the judo Olympian, and with every eye and lens upon her, Rousey was all frowns.

She was also all bluster and no training – as evidenced by the complete destruction Nunes inflicted upon her via her fists. Rousey was TKO’d in a whole 48 seconds.

So here’s the fight. Watch and enjoy.
