While Ronda Rousey is set to defend her women’s bantamweight championship against Cat Zingano on January 3 at UFC 182, it appears she has the support of one UFC commentator to take on her nemesis right after.
During his recent ‘Fight Companion, Joe Rogan explained why he would be in favor of seeing Rousey fight Bryan Caraway, a fellow UFC bantamweight (albeit in the male division) and partner of her chief rival, Miesha Tate.
“If you know that a chick used to be a dude, but is now a chick and you fight her, I’m on board,” said Rogan. “I think it should be legal to ride bulls, I think it should be legal to jump BMX, you should be able to do whatever the f**k you wanna do. I think a 135 pound chick should be able to fight a 135 pound dude.
“I think if Ronda Rousey and Bryan Caraway talked enough s**t and they decided to go at it, I don’t have any problem with that if they both agree to it.”
The Rousey/Caraway feud dates back to 2012. The night before she beat Tate to claim the women’s Strikeforce belt, Caraway tweeted:
‘if [Rousey] wants to challenge a man I’ll knock her teeth dwn (sic) her throat the (sic) break her arm!’
