Two ‘Huge’ Men Allegedly Cornered Her During a Theater Confrontation — To Say It Was a Big Mistake Is an Understatement May. 22, 2014 11:15pm Jason Howerton

UFC Women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who is also set to star in an upcoming movie based on Brad Thor’s book “Athena Project,” once beat up two “huge” men so badly that they went to the police and filed charges, UFC President Dana White said.

“Listen, this is a true story. [Ronda] got into a street fight with two huge guys in a movie theatre. She hurt them both so bad they went to the police department and filed charges against her, when they’re the ones that started the fight with her,” he told EsNewsReporting.com recently. “That was before she started fighting. That was when she was doing judo alone.”

“hurt them so bad” they went to the police instead of the hospital.

Yeah, but the only one likely to get Hollywood's attention. Thor is very conservative, and would be blacklisted by a large part of the movie industry.

It will be interesting to see who else is cast in the movie. At the moment, the IMDB page just has Rousey's name on it.

I may take flack for this, but ANY story like this that is released about anyone in a movie, should be taken with a grain of salt. Movie PR people will say ANYTHING to pump up their client’s resume.

Ever heard the one about Will Smith turning down MIT to be an actor? That never happened. Will Smith was a smart kid and a good student but the old tale is based on a diversity program at MIT that MAY have let him in IF he applied, which he did not.

Back in the day they really went all out. Jack Palance, who did serve in the military, was said to have been so disfigured in a military plane crash that his unique mug was a result of botch plastic surgery. Later on he would sarcastically deny the story was was kind of embarrassed by it.

Hee hee - reminds me of when Bas Rutten was at a charity event and accidentally steped on Brian Urlacher’s foot.

Bas apologized, and offered to buy (or get) Urlacher a beer. But Urlacher, not knowing who Bas was, got nasty with Bas and even wanted to “take it outside”.

Some of Urlacher’s friends knew who Bas was - and what he was capable of, and took Brian Urlacher aside to educate him.

Best I recall, Brian finally came back and apologized for getting so upset.

Keep in mind that the picture of her that everyone is reacting too is the day of the UFC weigh-in where she has intentionally cut weight. that’s not what she looks like “walking around.”

When she’s cutting weight for weigh-ins, boobies are the first things to shrink on a woman.

She’s not the hottest woman on the planet by any means, but she is very attractive when she’s not prepping for a fight.

The fight was from before she was part of UFC or other competitive fighting.

History, story making, but not part of today’s events.

I'd attempt to hit it, then fail miserably.

But, she'd hit me, and that's almost as good.

May not be true - but - a friend of mine was showing me a utube video of these ‘girls’ fighting and - yikes! The loser was bleeding from her mouth, nose, and it looked like her eye.

I'm all for strong women but this bunch may be a little overboard in the testerone department.

These women are highly unique. Their fights are brutal. Same with the guys. UFC is incredible to watch because of the damage that is inflicted in numerous ways. It makes boxing seem boring and soft.

So her one hit knockout would at least double the normal time spent completing the act? ;-)

The story is almost certain hogwash. Whatever happened, it wasn’t what was reported, unless she had a gun.

It is theoretically possible, particularly with the element of surprise, but pretty unlikely even then. For her to disable them enough to “win the fight,” she would almost certainly have had to put them into the hospital or possibly kill them. She’d have to attack their most vulnerable points all-out. If things got to a muscle vs. muscle grappling, she’d lose.

For a man of this size and weight to beat up two “huge” guys is unlikely. They’d presumably outweigh him by a factor of 4x to 6x or more. For a women, with little more than half the upper body strength of a man of the same size, it is that much less likely.

For some obscure reason, movies and TV try to convince us that women can compete with men in this arena on a more or less even footing. Just not true, and never will be.

Given equal size and skill, the man will win every time. A woman would have to be MUCH more skilled, and probably lucky too, for her to defeat a larger man in hand to hand. Such women exist, but they’re darn rare.

An intelligent woman who wants to defend herself would carry a gun and spend her time becoming proficient in its use rather than messing about with “self-defense” stuff.

It depends on how they were "huge". If it was two NFL linebackers, then yes she would be in trouble. If it was two out of shape fat slobs, then she probably could put a hurting on them.
