MMA Fighter: Ronda Rousey Was Created By The Media

David Hookstead | Reporter

MMA fighter Chael Sonnen is making waves in the fighting world after criticizing Ronda Rousey.

Sonnen appeared on the “Jim Rome Show” earlier in the week, and he didn’t have many nice things to say about Rousey’s career as a fighter. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of Ronda Rousey On The Internet)

“Ronda was created by the media. Ronda was never as good as the media said she was. She was never as big of a draw or as big of a selling piece as they said she was. That’s not a knock on Ronda. That’s just a fair assessment. She’s very good,” he claimed while on the show. (SLIDESHOW: The UFC’s Newest Octagon Girl Is Barely Dressed In These Jaw-Dropping Photos)

Despite his criticism of her image he did add that he was, “Team Ronda.” (SLIDESHOW: UFC Star Arianny Celeste Is Nearly Naked For All Her Fans In These Pictures)


Rousey will make her return to the UFC on Dec. 30 to fight Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. There is no doubt that the event will have no trouble selling tickets.
