NEWS FLASH (Taken from USAToday):
To be precise, Ms. Rousey says:
“I would drop down to the ground and crawl over to him as fast as I can,” Rousey said. “I wouldn’t even stand up, I wouldn’t be near him. I would just do a little army crawl over there… I would just be skittering after him like the one dude in Bloodsport that was doing the whole monkey crawl fight system. I would do that. I would just bear crawl over there, too low for him to hit me, and tackle him down.”
And Floyd Mayweather isn't the only male champion receiving catcalls from across the gender gap.
Inspired by Rhonday Rousey, NASCAR and Indy pioneeress Danica Patrick has issued a public statement daring Lance Armstrong to man-up, drug-up and pit his pedaling skills against her Indy car.
Also, Women's Speed Skating champion Lee Sang-hwa has put Usain Bolt on notice, declaring that any time he wants to step on the ice, she'll show him what 500 meter-speed is about.
Perhaps the most daunting challenge came from Russian weightlifter Tatiana Kahirina, who has accused U.S. figure skater Ross Miner of ducking her challenge to a power lifting showdown.
Whenever I hear about these shark-dares-bear-to-step-in-the-water challenges, I always think it says more about the challenger than the challenged. Rhonda Rousey is a phenomenal fighter and may well be the best female fighter in the world; but she makes herself look part insecure/part megalomaniac when she brags about being able to out-kick and grapple a boxer. Now if she really wants to dazzle, she should fight Mayweather in a boxing ring under WBA rules.
That would be impressive.
