Ronda Rousey: “If I wanted to see a man run for 25 minutes I’d go to a track meet.”

One of the 10,000+ people packing the seats last night at UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit was unbeaten Strikeforce bantamweight Ronda Rousey, a vicious grappler with a tendency to share her opinion on subjects regardless of how the public may react to them. Her honesty and sharp tongue have endeared her to many fans and ostracized her from others, both factors playing into the 25-year old’s surging popularity as the new face of women’s MMA and immediate title-contender despite only having four professional fights under her belt.

As might be expected, Rousey had an opinion on the result in last night’s main event where she, like many, felt the judges took a lead from this weekend’s Super Bowl and “fumbled the ball” as it were.

“If I wanted to see a man run for 25 minutes I’d go to a track meet,” wrote the riled up Rousey on her Twitter account. “Diaz is the real champ, what a bullsh*t fight.”

Octagon control should count for way more than it does,” she continued in a later post. The judges shouldn’t encourage point fighters.”

In terms of how she scored things, Rousey explained she had the first, second, and fifth round for Diaz and felt there was a fairly convincing case for all in comparison to that for Condit taking any of the frames.

Needless to say Rousey will no doubt be more motivated than ever to finish Strikeforce 135-pound champion Miesha Tate when the two face off on March 3 in Columbus, Ohio on a stacked Strikeforce card.

    I like Rhonda as a fighter, but she should watch her mouth. When she has any where near the number of wins and the caliber of competition that Condit has, maybe she can say something. Shooting your mouth off may get you attention, but you still should think before you speak to avoid looking stupid.

    And she’s still wicked hot. :)

    Fuk off guys. Shes 100% right for me. I think you should be rewarded for pushing the fight rather than running. At the mo you can win a fight by running, avoiding a contest and negative tactics. She doesnt like that idea and says so. WTF is wrong with that? Do you expect her to stop being herself? I expect fighters to fight and people to be themselves and say what they think despite fans telling them to be false.

    She is calling a spade a spade. Condit ran away. Why do people have a problem with people calling it how they see it? Condit actually ran away at times. Its a fact. It was a way of winning but a really shitty way. I bet he regrets it before long. I have no doubt he lost more respect than he gained from fighters and fans by winning this fake title. He lost respect in my eyes and at least Rouseys and Diazs too.

    What he said /\/\/\/\

    Did you see Diaz’ face after the fight? Pretty busted up to say Condit ran away. It’s pathetic how any kind of objectivity goes out the window when you Diaz nut huggers are butt hurt about him losing.

    For the record, I’m a Diaz fan, but I’m also a Condit fan and he fought an awesome fight. It’s not a Tuff man competition in a redneck bar and Condit had no reason to stand there and swing like a drunk frat boy until one of them fell down. Your constant “he ran away the whole time” comments only prove that you’ve never been in a real fight in sad little life.

    For the record, I am mostly annoyed because the result wasn’t conclusive; as evidenced by all the arguing everyone is doing. By my own scoring methodology, I would not have given more-than two rounds to Condit, but I didn’t get to judge the fight.

    It’s also interesting to see what sub-section of people who have been hating on GSP and other fighters for “playing it safe” seem to have no qualms over Condit’s extremely calculated out-pointing gameplan.

    The fallout from this fight has been amusing, to say the least.

    Diaz has so many haters that people are actually defending Condit’s performance. Unbelievable!

    That fight was a turd. Plain and simple. You all are trying to declare a winner to a fight that no one won. That was a 5 round sparring session that should have been declared a draw. What a turd!

    BTW, Ronda’s right. I’m a huge Condit fan, and I can forgive him this one crappy fight, but that was truly awful to watch.

    BTW #2, fuck your St. Lucia ads, Five oz….seriously, WTF.

    Condit shouldnt come off like a big finisher if hes gonna run . Everybody would be more pist if diaz all a sudden ran the whole fight and won a weak decision. its weak when its a ifc fight and someone takes the easy way out.

    Rousey is a promising new talent, but she hasn’t had enough experience to appreciate what it’s like to face a top tier striker. Maybe the Tate fight will help her appreciate a game plan that involves some footwork and evasion. Tate will scuff her up if she just wades in.

    If Ronda wants to watch a bar fight she can go to a bar.

    Instead she went to an MMA event to see an MMA fight and got a technical kickboxing match.

    Everybody’s skin reacts differently to abuse., for 1 .. Nick has a lot of Scar tissue, 2 he has a finger nail scratch on his face, 3 his nose always gets red no matter if he gets his or not.. Nick was never hurt in that match ..thats what showed…Carlos looked hurt more than a couple times and then Nick could have road the body lock for days but decided to go for a armbar or shoulder lock because it was the end of the round. Carlos got owned..

    Some say he won the 4th and maybe the third.. . I say Diaz got board of watching Carlos run away oh and here his face. .not bad http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1053916-ufc-143-results-did-nick-diaz-just-retire-from-mma
