Lolo Jones: I could last at least a minute against Rousey
Lolo Jones is thinking about trying her hand at mixed martial arts. And if she does, the Olympian is confident she could last longer in the Octagon against Ronda Rousey than some of Rousey’s recent opponents.
On Saturday night, Rousey needed just 34 seconds to knock out Bethe Correia at UFC 190. That was Rousey’s longest fight in her past three, as she submitted Cat Zingano in 14 seconds back in February and Alexis Davis in 16 seconds prior to that.
Jones, who was apparently watching the fight, feels she could have given the fans more of a show:
How much are these chicks paid to get knocked out in seconds? I cant fight but I'll prolong it and run circles for least a minute #UFC190— Lolo Jones (@lolojones) August 2, 2015
What’s she going to do, jump over Rousey? Jones may be fast, but speed isn’t going to do her much good in the Octagon against one of the fiercest fighters in the world.
Jones should stick to her Olympic workout routine and the insane diet that goes along with it. She’s much safer that way.
