See, I think guys who outweigh her by 100+ should be able to take her - easily.

Assuming you are 235+ with more muscle than fat, I will assume you are a decent athlete - not world class, but enough to be able to use your athleticism and weight to take on an undersized woman. You overestimate the advantage she would have in close - against like sized opponents, sure she has an advantage. But with an extra 100 pounds, she won't have the same leverage she enjoys against most of us. Then, pure weight on her will wear her out as fast as you get worn out.

If you have any boxing skills, you could use your reach advantage if she does not charge you. jabs, not power punches will keep you from wearing yourself out.

But, worse case scenario is you should be able to bear hug her, and body slam her, and don't let go....

And those big guys would be so slow that she would kick their legs till they collapse.

Sure, if you let her. The idea is to use the one advantage you have - size.

It would only work if you either kept her at bay with jab, or when she charged you, be ready to use your leverage and wrap her up, and lean on her.

I am neither 235, nor overly muscular, so it does not apply to me. But if you met those requirements, I assume you are also athletic to have that build.

Have to laugh at the delusional members of the FFA. To think even 1% of the FFA would last more than 20 seconds with her is ludicrous. Two rounds? No way.

you don't know how to use leverage, wrap up, and lean on her. Even if you do, you don't know it at an Olympic level. She does.

unless one is skilled enough in the arts to negate her technique advantage, the best bet is to maintain distance with a lot of jabs. Even then - working your way into clinch range is something she has worked on for years - that's a pretty basic skill for any MMA fighter to practice.

Yep. Its quite the dose of reality to go into a serious mma gym fresh off the street and realize how pathetic you really are. Guys come in all the time thinking their tough and they'll use their size or strength, its not pretty and they usually dont last long because the first step is accepting that you suck and you're gonna take a lot of beatings.

You aren't going to out leverage an Olympic judoist. You'll be on your back in hurry and tapping shortly after.

The only hope outside a lucky punch would be keeping her at length with a jab and maintaining that for 25 minutes while not eating a crap load of leg kicks. The majority of UFC heavyweights cannot go 25 minutes without gassing even though their job is to do so. Your 235lbs "athlete" certainly won't. Maybe 2 rounds but highly doubtful.

Unless you've rolled or sparred with the caliber of fighter today's MMA -male and female- you have no idea the level they're on.

This is applicable to every famous professional athlete in every sport

Regular people have absolutely no chance

Yup. Rousey has been a pro since 2011. Since then, i'd imagine she rolls, spars, or both for 3-4 hours a day, plus lifting, nearly every day of the week. She has dedicated her life to being as bad-### as she can possibly be, and she came into this with a world-class judo background.

The sheer number of hours all of these folk put into their craft is amazing. These aren't normal people working normal jobs - they are high level, gifted athletes who train every damn day.

MMA has a tremendous amount of skill involved - wrestling, jitsu, and kick-boxing are all complete sports themselves. It takes a LOT of work to be proficient at all three. Now, I'm not saying Rousey is the best striker in the world, but she is at least proficient. Most folks walking around are not proficient with any of these skills.

If someone wants to be able to hang with her, you had better be at least competent with all three and/or professional caliber kickboxer or jitsu'er.

On your back is unlikely - tapping out, maybe.

Are you trying to knock her out, or survive? If you are just trying to survive it does not take much energy to keep your weight on her - just ask my wife.

If you try to fight her, at her game, then yes you are going to lose. But if you simply want to survive 5 rounds, then you don't try to fight, you try to survive - and your chances are better than most think - again assuming some size (235+) and athleticism here.

For the record, I don't think she can beat me up per se, I voted that she would break my arm, well inside the first round. But, i don't think she would rip it off and beat me over the head with it.

I'm a big strong guy, very athletic and played sports my whole life, and I do pretty well when things go down on the street. I'm going to join a muay thai gym this month, and I have no illusions...I expect to get the tar beaten out of me regularly, probably even by the chicks.

I've got 7 inches, gigantic reach, 85 pounds, and am probably 2 possibly 3x as strong as her. At the age of 32, maybe I have a punchers chance if I can keep my distance, frustrate her, and catch a lucky shot (if I connect once on the chin or temple it would be lights out). This would also include 3-6 months of training and I'd still be a gigantic underdog.

In my early 20's, with 3-6 months of training, I think I would've taken her.

Yes, on your back; not meaning unconscious, just on your back.

You'd have a much better chance going for a KO than you would surviving. Rush her throwing bombs. 25 minutes of laying on a submission specialist? Good luck with that. Again, your 235lb athlete would not have near the stamina for 25 minutes.

For me the question would be how long the ref would allow be to turtle up before he called a TKO. I would stay standing as long as possible and then would spend whatever remaining seconds I had trying to avoid getting choked out or limbs broken.

I'd have a big reach advantage so my jab is going to play a big part in the fight. I'd jab all round long. Stick and move, stick and move. If she decides to go at my legs then I have two options. Hammer punch to back of head (I land two of those clean and it's over) or knee right to the face. If the knee lands flush on the nose not only is the match over but likely her career. I fear some kind of take down and then an arm bar but I'd never leave the arm vulnerable to it. Most of her opponents have a habit of reaching when on the ground and they expose themselves to that move. If we're both on the mat my arms are staying close to my body. Finally, if we're grappling and I can get the arm locked under the chin and lock the legs, the guillotine ends the match in my favor. The hardest part for me about the guillotine would be to apply enough pressure to end the match but not too much to kill her. Recap: jab all day, hammer punch or knee if she goes low, keep arms in close on the ground, guillotine (w/responsible pressure) if I get the arm locked under the chin.

I'm kidding, she wins in 6 seconds or less

No one on this board has a shot, but the athlete wins IMO. For 3-6 months, he simply works on take down defense and he should be good to go.

Yea, someone like this is just muscles, he isn't extremely quick or a world class athlete either. She owns this dude who is almost 2x her size, 5x her strength, and every ounce the athlete she is... Especially after he gets 6 months to prepare. Good chance someone like this dude would kill her.
