Unless you’re ready to face painful consequences, pushing the buttons of a female MMA fighter is probably not a smart choice.
YouTube personality Aaron Tru learned this the hard way, when he took a big risk in an interview with undefeated UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.
Dressed in a beginner’s martial arts uniform, Tru said:
“I’ve got to be honest, I don’t think you have as much strength and can compete with a man, even though I’m a white belt.”
Then Rousey said:
“That was exactly how to get me to throw you.”
A few seconds later, she did exactly that, and sent Tru a clear message: don’t diss fighters for their gender.
Tru found himself barely able to move, complaining about crushed ribs and his “balls being smashed into his cup.”
Rousey wasn’t sure if Tru’s reaction was genuine, but he assured her it was. Perhaps he will think twice before he challenges a woman again, and assumes that gender makes all the difference.
Rousey successfully defended her UFC bantamweight title last week with an epic, 14-second defeat of her opponent.
She also has had her fill of confrontations with men — out of the ring. Rousey once beat the mess out of two “huge” men when they allegedly cornered her in a movie theater after a tense encounter during a screening of the movie “Juno.”
After getting beat up, the men actually tried to press charges against Rousey!
Police declined to pursue charges, she said.
