What happened to Ronda Rousey, the person of multitudes?

Before she took the coaching stint on The Ultimate Fighter 18, it felt as though she could literally do no wrong. Rousey was the first women’s UFC champion. She was on glossy magazine covers and became the apple of many media outlet’s eye. There were movie roles to mull over, and sponsors, and television appearances -- the basic spoils of sudden stardom, which she coyly embraced. I called her the Royce Gracie of women’s MMA before she fought Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, because it felt like she was pioneering a movement for future generations.

Then she showed up to Vegas and, instead of finding Cat Zingano, whom she was supposed to spend the next six weeks with, there was Miesha Tate, her arch-nemesis with batting eyes like the purring cat that swallowed the canary.

This somewhat sadistic -- and perhaps unfair -- surprise was all it took to curdle the milk...

I don't like her but who the hell cares. She's going to rip Tate's arm off again by keeping it real, regardless of how much I want her to get ktfo.

I don't really see Tate or Zingano as decent challenges for Rousey. She needs to fight someone with some good takedown defense.

When she fights someone who she can't take down we'll finally find out what she's got.

I don't think she's real. I think she's trying to be a female Diaz.

I got a future AV bet that says Cat will defeat Rousey if you're up to it then.

Most people saw the dbag in Rousey well before tuf. Now everyone see's her for how she is. Some people are specifically fans of only asshats, I'm not, screw her.

I still like her. She may be stuck up.
I don't need to like her as a person. Just show up and figh. I wanna see her break Tate arm. Cause I know she is going to try it

Ah yes, the colloquial rhetoric "I keep it real". The crutch of the inarticulate, the defining statement of the unintelligent, the motto for those who lack human decency; it's all synonymous with I have no self control and possess the emotional stability of a premenstrual thirteen year old girl.

And still every so often you get a buffoon that not only applauds this behavior but the aspires to emulate it. God help us all

Exactly, and if that IS the real her, she's just extremely childish (like the Diaz brothers).

Defiantly a little less attracted to her after watching TUF
