The Baddest Woman On The Planet, Ronda Rousey, had some kind words for WWE star Mustafa Ali.
Former Cruiserweight Mustafa Ali challenged The Almighty Bobby Lashley for the United States Championship on the October 3rd edition of Monday Night Raw. Although Ali wasn’t successful, he showed courage and tenacity by not submitting to Lashley’s Hurt Lock.
Even though Ali didn’t win the championship, he may’ve won the respect of Ronda Rousey. During The Baddest Stream on the Planet, Rousey was asked about Ali and gave some huge props to the WWE star. She also praised Ali’s use of the arm drag during matches.
“I think he is amazingly talented, like he athletically comes up with some amazing sequences and stuff like that. I think he is super cool.”
“He has some awesome arm drags. I’m not usually tempted like ‘Ooh an arm drag’ but like I can arm drag, I’ll tell you what.”
The match on Raw was Ali’s first on the red brand since teaming with Cedric Alexander in defeat to The Miz and Ciampa back on August 15th.
Meanwhile Rousey has the chance to capture some gold of her own when she challenges Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Championship on October 8th at Extreme Rules. The Baddest Woman on the Planet was recently revealed to be the cover Superstar of the Extreme Rules poster, which irked the champion.
