I still think Dana is going overboard when comparing Rousey to Lesnar, but she seems to be the real deal, along with interest in WMMA as a whole.
Yeah man, no harm in admitting you were wrong. Some people flat out refuse to admit that. Its shows character, while the people who act all stubborn and always refuse to admit that Kevin Bacon was in Footloose just look like whiney little bitches.

Can you provide some sort of link for when Dana compared Rowdy to Lesnar? Or jsut explain to me what he said, I missed it. Just wondering about the context to which Dana made his comparison.

Agreed. She's obviously better than Lesner

I might be wrong, but I believe he was saying how she was getting way more press/attention than Lesnar did. There's just no way that's possible. I know attention doesn't equal pay-per-view buys automatically, but Lesnar had 4 of the top 5 all-time pay-per-views. I remember Lesnar/Couture being all over ESPN and then UFC 100 obviously. Rousey will emerge as one of the bigger mainstream stars we've seen in a while, but nothing compared to Lesnar.

And to the above poster....I guess she's better in her division than Lesnar is/was? Lesnar was a beast for a short while though.

Was really just kidding around, but if we look at MMA accomplishments, they're already comparable, and Brock is done.

I can see Rousey defending a bunch of times, and while I have no idea if her per-card buys will out-perform Brock's, I have little doubt that she will be one of the top total $$ draws in a fairly short timeframe.

Question: P4P (shudder) who is the better mixed martial artist- Lesner or Rousey?

Yup I know, I got the hint with the stick poking animation lol. Well Brock might be the biggest star in UFC history, but I'm sure Rousey will end up being a better fighter for the division she's in (if she's not already).

There really doesn't seem to be the #2 current draw behind GSP. It seems like Silva, and Bones are right around it (Rashad & Rampage were, but not really anymore). If she keeps winning, it could easily be Rousey.

That's probably an accurate measure of the four mentioned champions drawing power. Though I should mention that when a champions dominant for a rather long time finding contenders becomes a challenge. Then we have situations like GSP versus Silva and Jones versus Silva.

I agree with you in that the Bermudez was probably the fight of the night. Not even the girls fought with that kind of urgency. They probably showed that fight after the women because they feared it would detract.

There's nothing to agree with. He was stating a fact. Bermudez got fight of the night.
