  • Javier Vazquez: In 2 Years, Sara McMann Would Beat Ronda Rousey By: Sherdog.com Staff




    Javier Vazquez, on “Beatdown,” discussing Sara McMann’s future after her loss to Ronda Rousey:

    “I was super impressed with Sara McMann’s standup. I think she’s going to be a tremendous fighter. What I saw as the problem was that they kind of fed her to Ronda a little bit early. How did everyone expect Sara McMann to win? They expected her to grind out a five-round decision. That’s what I kind of expected, and Ronda has that ace up her sleeve where she can finish the fight at any moment, that Anderson Silva effect. … I was leaning towards Ronda in that effect, but if you give Sara McMann two years, I’ll take her all day long.”

  • Podcast: Campbell McLaren, Javi Vazquez on on 'SRN Rewind' By: Sherdog.com Staff

    The UFC 170 main event between Ronda Rousey and Sara McMann answered some questions and left others unanswered, and the Sherdog Radio Network "Rewind" analyzed the drivers behind it all.

    In the latest installment of "Pro Perspective," host Jack Encarnacao welcomes MMA veteran Javier "Showtime" Vazquez to break down the liver knee from Rousey that left her challenger prone for one critical instant, and how clinching, the bases of wrestling versus judo, lack of head movement, and perhaps luck factored in to the ultimate outcome. Vazquez also puts his finger on the most impressive qualities about Rousey, McMann, Daniel Cormier, and Rory MacDonald.

    Then, in a "Down To Business" segment, Jack is joined once again by original UFC producer Campbell McLaren to discuss his new MMA venture "Combate Americas," which premieres on the Spanish-language channel mun2 this week. McLaren discusses the points of differentiation between marketing MMA to the Hispanic audience versus an en masse audience, the niche appeal potential of the sport, and lessons learned from his ill-fated "Iron Ring" venture on BET.
