MMA Candy great website. All Women. Vanessa is the one in the Scramble pants.. ( i so want a pair of those!), I’ve been told she is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. American Top Team Treasure Coast.
A story as told by Dr. Annmaria (Rondas Mom) about Ronda entering a local submission grappling tourney called The Valentines day Massacre.
“This reminded me of when Ronda came back from her second Olympics and wanted to enter a local grappling tournament that offered a cash prize. The conversation went like this:
You have no experience. You can’t just enter the open division. Let us talk to your coach.
Let me get my mom.
Your MOM? This is your coach? Your MOM?
I think you all are underestimating my daughter. Give me whatever waiver you need me to sign. Here, I’ll sign it twice if you want me to.
The rest of the story …. She won but did not get the money because they said she did not have enough competitors in her division. And here is how that happened … after she slammed and arm barred the first three, the next two people said, and I may be paraphrasing here,
And pulled out of the division.”
The moral of the story:
I don’t know about you guys but I’ll tell you what I take from this. Never, and I mean NEVER underestimate a pretty girl in board shorts and a rash guard or her tiny World Judo champion Mother because if you piss em off, you might just end up a puddle of goo!
