Chael Sonnen

Ronda Rousey Could

Beat Up Rampage Jackson

EXCLUSIVE

1109-chael-sonnen-ronda-rousey-tmzRonda Rousey won't be fighting men in the UFC ... but it's not because she can't hang -- in fact, RR could kick the living crap out of some of the UFC's top guys ... this according to Chael Sonnen

We broke the story ... Ronda just became the very first female to ever join the UFC -- after skyrocketing to the top of the female MMA ranks in Strikeforce.

Now, Chael -- a seasoned UFC vet -- tells us, "I'd like to congratulate Ronda Rousey on becoming a pioneer in this sport. It's well deserved and overdue."

He adds, "Looks like Mitt Romney has a new favorite fighter and Rampage Jackson has another opponent he can't beat."

Smells like a challenge ...

Ronda Rousey's the first UFC fighter Harvey wouldn't enjoy beating the pants off of.

i'm glad tmz keeps talking about ronda rousey.. she is a great fighter and such a mega-babe. i wouldn't engage in combat with a woman unless i had no choice but i would give ronda a pounding of a different kind in the bedroom. i would leave her sweaty and tired just like her workouts do.

If Rousey was the first woman to sign to UFC, who is she going to fight in the UFC? This reporting almost seems like a child wrote it. To the authorr, how how about this one, "9.9 earthquake struck Southern California this morning, Selena Gomez dumps Beaver!"

You go girl!!! I honestly didn't know who you were before but I sure as h€ll do now! What a great role model you to not only young girls, but also to those of us who are moms. I love seeing young women entering what is assumed a "man's sport"! You are gorgeous, strong (inside and out), and courageous! Congratulations on your induction! You have a new fan here ;)

Everyone thought the same of Gina Carano ( man she's hot yes) until Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos got a hold of her. Yes it's strikeforce I know but I don't think anyone can hold a candle to Cyborg.

Ronda's a great fighter- but she's SO GOOD that it's not much fun to watch her. Most of her fights are over in under 2 minutes, and they aren't that dramatic since the other girl can't even get a shot in.

I don't know about Jackson, but I don't think she would have much trouble beating Sonnen. No one else has.

Haha he's joking of course, against Jackson or any male UFC fighter she'd just get hurt.
But that's irrelevant, she's a female fighter and can hold her own and then some in her field of female MMA fighting.
She's very athletic and has accomplished what she has by putting in the effort and remaining dedicated to her workouts and practice.
That's enough to stand on it's own, without the need to compare her to men and pedestal her as being better than men.

I'd like to see a few of those recent black trouble makers misbehave when she's around.
