I get it, but it isn’t exactly the same.
While Rousey doesn’t believe that fans will get bored with her not being challenged, I disagree because fans have to take the division seriously to keep paying attention. Mike Tyson was knocking people out left and right, but people took the heavyweight division very seriously at the time.
But Rousey isn’t concerned, here are her comments via the LA Times.
“Mike Tyson had some serious competition too, don’t forget. It wasn’t always easy,” Rousey told Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times. “People knew from those fights to get there immediately. You never know what’s going to happen in one of my fights, either. That’s the advantage I have over my opponents and what draws the fans in so much. From the second my fight starts to the second it’s over, nobody sits down.”
I think it would help if she was in a real fight, Tyson in between KOing people, had some tough fights, but Rousey so far not so much.
