On Tuesday, the executive producer for Ellen had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of the current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, by getting his ass kicked. Andy Lassner was manhandled by the fierce Rousey when she demonstrated a series of MMA moves.
Lassner started the training session by pushing Rousey, and then she rolled him. When he attempted to get up she quashed that idea very quickly with her devastating armbar.
Ellen asks, “How’s that feel?” And Rousey jokingly responds, “I’m fine. Oh, were you asking him?”
Rousey grabbed Lassner and held him over her head like he was a baby. “I don’t have a great hip,” the producer pleaded, to which Rousey replied, “It’s OK, I do.” She then tossed him to the ground with a judo throw.
While he was on the floor, she hit him with another armbar, and Ellen encouraged him, “Try to get up.” He tapped out.
Considering his arm didn’t get snapped, Lassner looked like he had a pretty fantastic time. He got slammed to the ground by Rousey, and she had her legs all over him. And he got paid for it at his job. Nice work if you can get it.
Ronda appeared on the show by taking time away from training for her next bout against Holly Holm at UFC 193 on November 15, 2015. However, she really doesn’t need to train so hard because Wikipedia has declared that she destroyed Holm, but it took an eternity in Ronda Rousey fight time, 48 seconds.
