Ronda Rousey Adds the Diaz Brothers to Her Training Routine
 
Quote:

The next time Ronda Rousey defends her Strikeforce bantamweight title, she may have developed a new way to mean mug her opponent.

Following a brief vacation that she earned by submitting Miesha Tate in early March, Rousey is already getting back into the gym, and she’s adding some new training partners to her routine.

Rousey will be heading to Stockton, Calif., to work with Nick and Nate Diaz as well as the team at Cesar Gracie jiu-jitsu as she starts preparing for her next title defense.

“Yeah, I’m going up there from the 3rd to the 16th (of April) and it’s going to be the first time ever since I started doing MMA that I’m going to be training for an actual extended period of time away from my core camp, who I’ve always been with,” Rousey told MMAWeekly Radio recently.

Rousey got a chance to roll with Nick Diaz previously, and she says that traveling to different gyms during her judo career was a regular event, but she hasn’t done it since beginning her journey into MMA.

“When I did judo I used to go around all the time, like every month or so I would go away for a week or two weeks to go train somewhere else,” said Rousey. “For some reason it’s something I never did in MMA, so they invited me to come train up there, and they’re good at a bunch of things that I need to work on so I’m super excited. It’s going to be the first time I’m training away from home in a long time.”

While Rousey will definitely pick up some top notch training alongside Diaz and the other fighters in Stockton, she’s not leaving her home camp by any means.

Rousey has been working with her team and coaches in Los Angeles since she started, and she’s an L.A. girl for life.

She does however hope to keep the Diaz brothers and their team as regular training partners as she gets ready for her next title defense, presumably against Sarah Kaufman later this year.

“Oh yeah definitely, I hope it does,” Rousey said when asked if working with the Diaz brothers could become a regular part of her camp. “But I love L.A., I’ll never move away from here.”

I think it's a good move. She has all the tools in the world to be one of the greats, and training with the Diaz brothers certainly won't hinder that.

If anything her cardio will imrpove, which is never a bad thing. Not to mention her boxing and submission game will have to get better.

Hopefully she won't forget what wins fights for her though. Her ground game is money. The Diaz's will polish her stand up for sure I just hope it don't go to her head

She will be at the Gracie gym so I am sure she will be doing a ton of ground work as well.

Yeah this is true

If she can learn to work her chokes and other locks the way she swings that armbar every woman in her division is screwed for the next few years..

I bet she's practicing transitions into other submissions from an armbar attempt.

Let's see if Nate or Nick pick up some judo.

I think this is a really good move for her. I know it is just a couple week visit, but I have to imagine you can learn a lot from them.

Wish she'd just train with them full time. She's got very strong hips, if she could refine her boxing skills could do some damage on the feet, too.
