Join me in starting a slow and rising clap for Strikeforce champ Ronda Rousey. 

The MMA star was on the red carpet for Wednesday night's ESPY Awards, and she was baited into a bit of verbal sparring. 

Here is the video that may cause controversy, but really shouldn't. Be warned: There is NSFW language at the 30-second mark. 

Nothing like a nice little rant to get you through the day. 


From my end, I have to agree with most of what Rousey has to say.

I really tried to sit back and think what Kim Kardashian is famous for. I racked my brain to come up with the reason her image is ubiquitous and fans the world over know who she is.

She didn't write a book, win a title or invent something new and innovative. She isn't funny, doesn't act, and I have no clue as to whether she can carry a tune. 

She slept with R&B singer Ray J, and it was recorded and leaked to the free world. She also dated multiple pro athletes and enjoys a long-running and popular reality-TV series.

Rousey is a woman who trains for hours to sculpt her mind and body into an MMA-fit machine, and her tireless efforts are rewarded by a small niche of the sports world. 

She would be the first to tell you that her fame is more than enough, but it has to be aggravating to see another woman rake in millions and enjoy incredible fame for little more than having the name, the look and the following to keep it all afloat. 

Some of you will find fault with what Rousey had to say, but I consider you lost among the other drones. 

Kardashian is royalty, and for what? Let an MMA fighter tell it to you like it is.
