Chael Sonnen says Ronda Rousey can beat Rampage Jackson

Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is reportedly headed to UFC in 2013. According to Chael Sonnen, she's just one more opponent former champ Rampage Jackson won't be able to beat.

Let's ignore this post, just for the sake of trolling argument.

The big question surrounding Ronda Rousey's rumored debut under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner is who she will fight first. After all, she's already disposed of most of the 135-pound fighters under contract for Strikeforce, where the undefeated bantamweight champion remains undefeated.

How about Invicta FC?

Surely there has to be a pool of viable contenders (not named "Cupcake") willing to step up and take the fight. If not, they can always feed her former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson, who according to Chael Sonnen (via TMZ), would be unable to beat her.

"I'd like to congratulate Ronda Rousey on becoming a pioneer in this sport. It's well deserved and overdue. Looks like Mitt Romney has a new favorite fighter and Rampage Jackson has another opponent he can't beat."

Trash, meet talk.

Sonnen has a history of jawing with Jackson, calling out the Memphis native for "violating female reporters" and "making box office disasters." Rampage, meanwhile, says the former middleweight "sucks" and is "ruining" the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA).

He said, he said.

They won't get the opportunity to settle their differences inside the cage because Sonnen was promoted to a April 2013 title fight against Jon Jones while Jackson is tasked with stopping the rise of Glover Teixeira at UFC on FOX 6 in what's expected to be the final fight of his ZUFFA contract.

But is a fight against "The American Gangster" worth sticking around for?
