UFC Quick Quote: Ronda Rousey could 'absolutely' beat a lot of guys in the bantamweight division

And Shooto Brazil is probably already working on the poster.

"She could and she would. I've known her for a few years but what really stands out with her is she works harder than most people in this sport. Male or female, it doesn't matter. She's always in the gym whether she has a fight coming up or not. And it shows. There's no secret to success but hard work, and she's one of the hardest-working people in the sport in my opinion. That's really what's stuck in my head from being around her. But she's very skilled and very strong and she throws everyone. She absolutely could beat a lot of the guys in that division."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger is confident that women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey can not only hang with her male counterparts at 135 pounds, but also defeat them. That's according to a conversation "The Juggernaut" had with FOX Sports, which details his experience with "Rowdy" inside the gym. While such a fight would never get sanctioned inside the Octagon, we may never really know for sure, but that shouldn't stop us from speculating what would happen if Rousey finally got her hands on Bryan Caraway. But how far up the bantamweight ladder would you be willing to go before picking against her? Take a look at the top 10 in that division (right here) and leave your pick in the comment section below.
