What's this? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey getting some love from the boxing community? Believe it. While "Rowdy" has been disrespected in the past by both pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and female boxing icon Ann Wolfe (probably because of comments like this), she gets nothing but love from legendary Filipino sensation Manny Pacquiao. So humbling to hear such kind words from a legend like @emmanuelpacquiao @gfc_diamond @teamgfc @mitsub read news >>

Sounds like former Strikeforce women's featherweight champion Cristiane Justino did both, returning to the negotiating table she abandoned earlier this year after talks with White and Co. withered and died. So too, did the Brazilian's attempt to drop down to the bantamwe read news >>

UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta explains why he considers UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to be the most impressive fighter in the promotion’s history. While the majority of the UFC's hyperbole this week has been directed at Irish sensation Conor McGregor for his main event showdown against Dennis Siver in Boston, another star has gotten a recent rub from one of the UFC's head honchos. CEO Lorenzo Fertitta delved into the impact that UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has had read news >>

It's fight week, ladies and gentlemen, and you know that means. That's right. All aboard the hyperbole train! Choo-choo! Today's sampling isn't much of a new pound-for-pound revelation or even a dubious title shot promise. Instead we have something unrelated to Sunday's festivities in Boston, as UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta recently talked to Yahoo! Sports about the impact Ronda Rousey's success has had on the overall sports landscape, and he wasn't shy with the breadth of his responses. "I feel lik read news >>

And when you consider all of the past and current fighters the MMA promotion has dealt with, that's saying quite a bit.

Since then, she's been making movies, setting records, and establishing herself not only as one of the most polarizing figures in all of MMA, but sports in general. According to UFC CEO, Lorenzo Fertitta, read news >>

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey is thick and swole, powerful enough to take any 135-pound contender (like this one) and drive them into the mat with ruthless aggression. But not because she wastes time getting pumped in a musty gym. Instead, "Rowdy" concentrates on functional training, throwing bodies around the room with her top-shelf judo and rapidly-improving punch game. Every muscle has a task, and that task is problem solving. From her conv read news >>

"Cat Zingano is an extremely unique fighter, not only is she undefeated, but she's shown an amazing ability to deal with a lot of adversity. There's been a lot of times in her fights where she's been down but she's never been out. There's been times when she's close to losing, but there's never been a time when she didn't come back. That makes her an extremely dangerous opponent. I have to entirely put her away to the very end. She's the most risky opponent I've ever had. I'm keeping an eye on B read news >>
