We don’t talk politics much at Bloody Elbow, because there’s no need to. This is a combat sports site, after all. But you know that UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has hit the mainstream when presidential candidates are throwing her name out there. That was the case with one Mr. Donald Trump, the notorious business mogul and reality TV star. In a recent interview with CNN, he spoke about women fighting in facets of the military. For some reason, he lumped Rousey into the conversation, and stated that she was a supporter of his:
“I guess the answer is yes, because they’re really into it. Some of them are really, really good. I’ll tell you what, I know some woman that are just — Ronda Rousey is an example, who likes me.
“I’d take her on my side as a fighter.”
The only problem with that little statement is that Ronda is not a big fan of The Donald. In a previous interview with the same network, Rousey made it clear (while blinking a lot) that she would not vote for him:
“I mean, I wouldn’t vote for him. I just really wouldn’t trust the guy with running my country, that’s all.
“I’m not really going to get into specifics of it, but, I mean, I don’t want a reality TV star to be running my country.”
Rousey is likely to meet Meisha Tate in the Octagon later on this year, while Trump is likely to meet the end of his White House hopes and dreams any day now.
