Things didn’t totally go Holly Holm’s way at UFC 184. Maybe that will turn out to be the best thing for her. Holm made her Octagon debut amid a boatload of hype on Saturday, after establishing herself as one of women’s MMA’s hottest free agents with three undefeated years on the independent circuit. Before her arrival—once delayed in 2014 by injury—there were even whispers she might be the one to finally give Ronda Rousey a real run for her money. After Holm eked out a split-decision win over th read news >>

Ronda Rousey is the most dominant female fighter to ever compete in the realm of combat sports. The "Rowdy" one's meteoric ascension to the top of mixed martial arts has been a journey filled with one amazing accomplishment after the next, as the former Olympic judoka has solidified her position as one of the best (male or female) pound-for-pound fighters in the sport. The 28-year-old Californian has smashed every opponent put in her path and has parlayed her popularity inside the cage into a lu read news >>

Maybe Ronda wants to submit her in 10 seconds? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey continues to top herself each and every time she steps into the cage, and following yet another finish victory -- this time via armbar in only 14 seconds -- over the very durable and previously undefeated No. 1 contender Cat Zingano in the main event of the UFC 184 pay-per-view (PPV) last night (Sat., Feb. 28, 2015), options are waning for "Rowdy" as she has nearly clean read news >>

UFC president Dana White has freed Ronda Rousey to shoot a movie before returning to the Octagon sometime later this year. Looks like it may be a good thing that there are no really compelling challengers on the horizon for UFC women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey because she's got other plans for a bit. Rousey smoked Cat Zingano, a fighter many expected to be her stiffest test yet, in a mere 14 seconds last night at UFC 184 in Los Angeles' Staples Center. And since the UFC didn't manage to s read news >>

UFC President Dana White compares UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Ronda Rousey needed a mere 14 seconds to dispatch a legitimately tough title challenger in their main event. Coupled with her prior win against Alexis Davis, she has spent a grand total of 30 seconds in her last two fights - a remarkable achievement, and one that begs the comparison with a boxing legend from the 1990s, Mike Tyson. Apart from the speed with which she read news >>

Holly Holm wasn't even a UFC fighter when her name first started being thrown into discussions of potential challengers to Ronda Rousey's bantamweight throne. Holm at least fixed that first part on Saturday, earning a hard-fought decision win over Raquel Pennington in UFC 184's co-main event. Her performance in her long-awaited Octagon debut, however, was less than spectacular, and after watching Rousey's 14-second masterpiece over Cat Zingano, the former world champion boxer acknowledged that a read news >>

The conversation about the most impressive performances Saturday night has to begin with Ronda Rousey. It took the UFC women's bantamweight champion just 14 seconds to submit Cat Zingano in the UFC 184 main event. Zingano was supposed to represent the toughest test for Rousey to date. I guess the champ didn't get the memo. After side-stepping Zingano's amateurish attempt at a running knee in the first two seconds of the fight, Rousey took Zingano down and quickly forced her to submit to her pate read news >>

The level of domination that Ronda Rousey is showing in the bantamweight division of the UFC at the moment deserves some historical context. With her latest victory at UFC 184 over Cat Zingano—a submission win in just 14 seconds—the UFC has as close as it will ever get to a 100-point game from Wilt Chamberlain or a 56-game hitting streak from Joe DiMaggio. It has taken Rousey just one minute and 36 seconds in total to win her last three fights. She is a perfect 11-0. She doesn't win so much as s read news >>
