BJJ World Champion Bia Mesquita Challenges Ronda Rousey
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.01.2014

In an interview with MMA Fighting, lightweight and open class jiu-jitsu world champion Bia Mesquita has challenged Ronda Rousey. This comes after Rousey's comments on the Great MMA Debate podcast in which she said "judo fighters that are good on the ground never really got the respect they deserved" and that she "can beat any BJJ girl in the world, gi or no-gi, any weight division, black belt all the way in any rule setting." Here are highlights:

On Rousey being wrong: "She's completely wrong. She has no idea of what is like to fight a jiu-jitsu world champion in the black belt division."

On wanting a fight: "I already considered moving to MMA only to get her, but I don't have to think about it anymore since she's willing to compete in a jiu-jitsu match. I think she gets too much credit and is not even that good. Her striking is regular, and she has a lot to improve on the ground. It would be great to fight her and show what a real ground game and jiu-jitsu are."

On the fight happening at Metamoris 4: "It would be great if Metamoris could put up this challenge. Nobody would miss it. It would be an honor to represent the female jiu-jitsu (against Rousey). I would also stop this talk that she's unbeatable. I would rather fight her with the gi, but I'm a three-time no-gi world champion in the brown/belt division. Whatever she wants, gi or no-gi, under Metamoris rules or any other rule, I'm ready to take this challenge and honor jiu-jitsu."
