The UFC women fighters are taking a leaf out of their counterparts in WWE. It can be of no doubt that in sports like wrestling the competitors need to make them more and more interesting in order to make the fans follow them. The huge fan following enjoyed by WWE superstars is often lacking in the case of UFC fighters. They are not able to connect with the fans as much as the WWE superstars. However there has been a recent change in the putlook. The UFC superstars are also putting in their best efforts to make more and more people follow them. This is very important as nothing can be better than the appreciation from the people in general. The UFC women are especially catching up with this trend.
UFC women champion Ronda Rousey expressed her appreciation of this trend. Even though her crew and friends have been subject to a few problems and brawls with Bethe Correia, she remained upbeat about it. The only way she wants to answer Bethe is by fighting her in a match. She believes that all the buildup will become void unless they get involved in some actual fighting. Even though play acting might go a long way in winning over the crowd but ultimately it is the championship that matters. For winners like Rousey it is no distraction at all. She wants to train hard and perform her level best day in day out trying to demolish any opponent that may come down her way. Her next bout is tipped to be in Brazil. The hometown girl is visibly super excited about it as she is a darling of the crowd. It is only obvious that this will prove intimidating to whichever opponent she actually faces in the ring.
