Heavy Hands
40 - The Transitional Brilliance of Ronda Rousey

MMA is all about transitions, and so is this episode of Heavy Hands. Including this excellent segue!

Ronda Rousey, the armbar queen of the UFC, is currently riding a two-knockout streak. It's not that she's abandoned her judo base, but rather that she's found a way to really make it work for MMA, which means setting up her throws with strikes, and vice versa. She faces Cat Zingano this weekend in the main event of UFC 184. 

Also featured on the card is Holly Holm, who racked up 33 career wins as a professional boxer. She faces Raquel Pennington in her UFC debut. Your hosts discuss her chances against the game Pennington, and what her style means for her should she meet champion Rousey down the road.
