Lolo Jones says she could last a minute in octagon with Ronda Rousey
Sunday August 2nd, 2015

A lot of athletes were impressed with Ronda Rousey's 34-second knockout of Bethe Correia in UFC 190 on Saturday night, but count Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones as one who wasn't quite as enthralled. 

Shortly after the fight ended, Jones tweeted, “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.”

That's a bold statement and strategy, especially since UFC champion Conor McGregor recently said not even he would want to fight Rousey. But it's not the first time someone has felt they could fare better against the UFC women's bantamweight champion than most: earlier this year, a Texans cheerleader told TMZ that she wants a chance at Rousey.
