Perpetually offended politically correct social Justice Warriors may have bitten off more than they can chew this time around as they have chosen to target ‘the baddest woman on the planet’, UFC champion Ronda Rousey.

In the wake of a knockout performance, Saturday night, when Rousey scored another 30-second victory over Bethe Correia at UFC 190, the keyboard warriors just couldn’t take hearing any more about Rousey being a strong female role model.
SJW’s attacked Rousey over past comments regarding trans gender MMA fighter Fallon Fox, calling the ‘Rowdy’ one a ‘transphobic’.

Rousey made the comments two years ago when it was revealed that Fox, who had already competed in two fights against other women, had been born a man. The revelation sparked a debate about whether Fox should be legally allowed to compete against women.
Rousey, also an Olympic bronze medalist in judo, stated at the time:
“She can try hormones, chop her pecker off, but it’s still the same bone structure a man has… It’s an advantage. I don’t think it’s fair.”
“It’s not something that happened to her,” said Rousey, explaining her opinion further. “It was a decision she made. She should be aware in her career after that, it’s going to be an arduous path. I don’t know why she’s surprised by that. It’s going to draw a lot of emotions.”
“What if she became UFC champion and we had a transgender women’s champion?” Rousey said adding, “It’s a very socially difficult situation,” and noting that she would fight Fox if UFC demanded it.

The SJW’s have continued to bring the hate over the past few days.

I continue to be profoundly disappointed in people who say they're trans allies and praise Ronda Rousey.

Rousey is no stranger to controversy. During a 2011 interview on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Rousey called the September 11 attacks an “inside job”:
Before and after her victory Saturday, Rousey dedicated the fight to her good friend, role model, and the person whose name she took, former wrestler ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, who sadly passed away at the weekend.
Piper, star of the iconic cult film They Live, had been a guest on the Alex Jones show, and was outspoken regarding his views on government corruption and the assault on freedom. There is no doubt that he spoke in depth with Rousey on such important issues.
