Ronda Rousey Biography
Ronda Rousey was born February 1, 1987 and is an American judoka and mixed martial artist. She formerly trained at the Olympic Training Center in Wakefield, Massachusetts under guidance of Jimmy Pedro and is now part of Team Hayastan in Santa Monica, California.
Rousey trains under Gokor Chivichyan, Leo Frincu and Gene Lebell, along with Team Hayastan fighters such as Manny Gamburyan, Karen Darabedyan, Sako Chivitchian and Sevak Magakian. Rousey is currently the #2-ranked 145-pound female MMA fighter in the world according to the Unified Women's MMA Rankings. She has finished all of her opponents by armbar.
Rousey was scheduled to make her Strikeforce debut against Sarah D'Alelio on July 30, 2011 at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The fight was pushed back and eventually took place on the Strikeforce Challengers 18 main card on August 12, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rousey defeated D'Alelio by technical submission due to an armbar early in the first round. The victory was controversial as referee Steve Mazzagatti only stopped the fight because D'Alelio appeared to make a brief sound. According to instructions given to fighters before they compete, this is typically deemed to be a verbal submission. Mazzagatti initially did nothing, but after Rousey looked at him and stated that D'Alelio had submitted, he stopped the fight. D'Alelio admitted after the fight that she let out a verbal indication of pain.
Rousey faced Julia Budd at Strikeforce Challengers 20 on November 18, 2011 in Las Vegas. She won via submission due to an armbar in the first round, dislocating Budd's elbow in the process. Following the fight, she announced plans to move down to 135 pounds to challenge Miesha Tate, the current Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion.
Rousey will challenge Tate for her Strikeforce title on March 3, 2012 in Columbus, Ohio. The fight will serve as the main event of Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey.
