LOS ANGELES - Ronda Rousey's legacy in mixed martial arts is already secure.
She was the fighter who pushed the UFC to break the gender barrier, the first women's headliner in the company and the first UFC women's bantamweight champion.
But while Rousey has blazed an impressive trail in putting together an undefeated record, with all wins via finish, she won't be fully satisfied with her career unless she gets to fight the woman who got her interested in fighting in the first place.

The trash talk won’t stop, and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva wants to end this rivalry inside the Octagon.
The Brazilian heavyweight continues to campaign for a match with former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett when he returns from suspension, and the fact that Barnett isn’t interested in fighting him makes Silva wonder why.
"Everything he said is nothing but excuses. He’s simply afraid to fight me," "Bigfoot" said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. "If a fighter comes to the media and says he more
Before a Florida bill dropped that disallows access to these records, John S.

Even from the dark booth at El Compadre on Sunset Boulevard you can see Mark Miller’s right eye is bloodshot. The day before, he was wearing a patch over that eye, and he tweeted out that image with his hands curled into a hook, playfully, like a pirate. The day before that he had surgery on that eye, to fix burst blood vessels that blinded him. This was brought on by high blood pressure, which goes back to his acute renal failure, which became chronic, irreversible renal failure after a series more
Performance of the Night—No. 1: Donald Cerrone
Donald Cerrone winning Performance of the Night is no surprise. He turned it up late in the first round and had Miller in trouble, then he carried that momentum into the second. After landing a few solid body shots Miller's hands started to drop, and Cerrone capitalized with a head kick. He landed a few more shots on the ground and earned the finish at 3:31 of the second round.
This is Cerrone's fourth consecutive post-fight bonus, and in addition h more
