Back when she was still relatively new to MMA, Ronda Rousey was told by an interviewer that she likely didn’t have the “strength” to compete with a man. Seconds later, YouTube host Aaron Tru learned a very painful lesson that resulted in some “busted ribs.”
The 2011 video was re-posted on Feb. 24 and then went viral this week after Rousey successfully defended her UFC bantamweight title. At the moment, there’s no UFC fighter with a hotter career than Rousey.
But before she became the household name she is now, she had her "buttons" pushed by Tru in a big way when he told her, “As a beginner who has never competed in Judo, and who has a white belt on, I’ve gotta be honest, I don’t think you have as much strength and can compete with a man, even though I’m a white belt.”
“You know how to push my buttons. That was exactly how to get me to throw you,” Rousey replied through her laughter.
And she didn’t hold back in proving just how wrong he was (WARNING: Some strong language):
For any other guys out there who think they have a leg up on Rousey just because she’s a woman, keep in mind that she also 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.
Basically, don't mess this Rousey, regardless of your gender.
