People didn't know Ronda Rousey when she was in the Olympics…
USA Today Sports and MMAjunkie released a video featuring UFC welterweight fighter Hector Lombard talking about Jake Shields who he faces on Saturday at UFC 171. You can watch the video clip at the above link.
Below is an excerpt from Lombard speaking with reporters about how MMA is the entertainment business:
"Trust me, I came from the Olympics, and I can mention to you right now, for example, Olympic gold medalists in judo, and you don't even know who they are. Now, I mention to you a bronze Olympic medalist in judo, and you know who she is [Ronda Rousey]. Why? Because she had to come here. She had to come to the entertainment business."
