During his Hall of Fame football career, Michael Strahan was usually the one dishing out the punishment and sacking opposing quarterbacks as defensive end for the New York Giants.
But when he came face-to-face with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, the roles were quickly reversed.
During a stop at Live with Kelly and Michael, “Rowdy” put her judo skills to the test, dropping the 6’5″, 275-pound monster like a sack of potatoes. Not so much violent in its execution, but that landing, however, left Strahan face down.
It should be noted those impressive Olympic-medal winning skills were not taught by head trainer Edmond Tarverdyan, who was recently on the wrong end of a tongue lashing courtesy of Ronda’s mother.
Rousey has been hitting the media rounds in the lead up to her much-anticipated title fight against boxing champion Holly Holm, which is set to go down at UFC 193 next month in Melbourne, Australia.
