Preview: Ronda Rousey Gears Up for UFC 170

Ronda Rousey has been dominating UFC fights -- igniting other athletes to come forward about taking her on. Lolo Jones, Olympic hurdler, is convinced that she would be able to stay in the octagon longer than Bethe Correia, who lost to Rousey at UFC this weekend at just 34 seconds. 

The bantamweight champion's last four fights have been nothing but quick. The track star expressed that her speed could help take on Rousey.

 

Jones does admit that she isn't much of a fighter, but she thinks she can make it to a minute against Rousey. Currently, Jones holds the world record in the 60 meter hurdles at 7.72 seconds, and she also competes with the U.S. Olympic bobsledding team -- allowing her to easily gain and drop weight for various events. Jones is usually 30 pounds heavier when she is bobsledding and not running. 

Rousey crushes any competition that she encounters, a fight against Jones in the ring would be interesting.
