If reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey and former PRIDE FC Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko had a baby, he or she would likely be very good at grappling.
If they had 57?
They would likely take over the world. Sounds like fantasy, but "Rowdy" unabashedly told the mixed martial arts (MMA) media she was prepared to let "The Last Emperor" take full mount during yesterday's media luncheon in Los Angeles, where the Olympic judoka touched on everything from Emelianenko's influence on her combat sports career to facing Sara McMann at the upcoming UFC 170 pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Las Vegas, Nevada.
And of course, no Rousey conversation would be complete without discussing Miesha Tate.
"I really think that if me and her fought alone in her gym, if there weren't people there watching, she wouldn't have offered her hand to me," Rousey said in regards to blowing off "Cupcake's" handshake at UFC 168 (details). "Her actions were entirely influenced by being watched. My actions were all despite being watched."
Onward and upward.
The promotion is kicking its UFC 170 pre-fight hype into high gear since it takes place less than two months after Rousey was co-main eventing the "Weidman vs. Silva 2" fight card in "Sin City" (more on that here).
