Rousey makes guest appearance on “Conan”

August 9, 2012

Ronda Rousey added on to her media resume by making an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show on TBS. Rousey is making the rounds to hype her Strikeforce fight next Saturday against Sarah Kaufman.

Rousey talked about why she’s called “The Arm Collector” and about sex

Payout Perspective:

Not only did Rousey make an appearance on Conan, she was featured in an “all access” show on Showtime. We haven’t even mentioned ESPN’s Body Issue and the fact that Dana White wore a Rousey shirt at the UFC on Fox 4 weigh-ins. And, she’s cornered several UFC fighters at recent events. Rousey’s appearances have overshadowed the fact that UFC 150 is looking like a very strong card.

Rousey’s appeal rivals, and maybe outdoes, the hype Gina Carano had during her zenith as the face of women’s MMA. Does her popularity help women’s MMA? It certainly brings it into the mainstream. It also keeps Strikeforce afloat so long as Dana White does not bring women’s MMA over to the UFC.

    Really disappointed that they didn’t put Tate on the main card. Such bizarre thinking. There’s only so many opponents for Rousey, and any potential challenger should be given exposure to build up a fight, even if it’s a rematch. This is the exact same mistake they made with Kaufman on the Rousey vs Tate card.
