Fuji is nothing like Ronda though, she's lost twice in the last 2 years. Ronda is seen as this unstoppable armbar Queen, Fuji just got beaten by Aguilar and only squeaked past Zoila.

I agree that Fujii is nothing like Ronda but for (I assume) other reasons. She went undefeated in 22 fights, she's the womens' GOAT and she didn't bring WMMA to the UFC because she's not American. Same goes for Cyborg. She was a phenom, she beat the poster girl but didn't bring WMMA to the UFC because she's not American.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Ronda, she's just a good example of proving her own statement right.

She was a lot like Ronda (in terms of how the casual fan would view her if placed in a big market) before 2010. Two losses in two years can really hurt you in the way that you are perceived by fans though.

Personally I think strawweight is deeper than bantamweight at the moment.

Hmm... I think we're talking past each other here.

My point is that when Megumi was undefeated it didn't help WMMA in the states at all because she's Japanese. Even if Megumi was 28-0 right now it wouldn't make her a star in Northern America.

And I agree, strawweight is definitely where it's at for WMMA. Especially since Cyborg got outed as a cheater.

I don't really understand how gsp is considered good looking. Yeah George puts on a fly suit and has abs but a lot of people do that. Gsp looks like a giant ripped baby to me. The fuzzy head and the way his face is shaped looks like a baby.

Yes "our" sport, this "our" thing you speak of just happens to include these things called fans that have supported this sport throughout the years and that have solely made the UFC/MMA everything that it is today.

Coincidentally this thing called "our" allows the UFC to purchase Bentley's as bonuses for their athletes, "our" has also made a lot of people very rich, many of which don't even have to fight or train for MMA fights. "Our" pays for the first class airline flights, "our" pays for the luxury hotel rooms and champagne. Basically "our" picks up the entire tab for the UFC when all is said and done. How dare "our" have a rightful opinion over some piece of trash WWE/UFC gimmick just because she works out at the gym 6 hours a day.

There's only one way to settle this.

Rousey vs. St. Pierre at UFC 160 in Montreal.
