Did Lolo Jones Just Say She Could Last At Least a Minute Against Ronda Rousey?

1 minute read

Ronda Rousey gave a stunning performance Saturday night at UFC 190 by successfully defending her bantamweight championship title and knocking out Bethe Correia in 34 seconds.

But U.S. Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones reckons she could last at least 60 seconds against the UFC champ — just by running circles around the Octagon, writes the Bleacher Report.

Jones tweeted Sunday, “I can’t fight but I’ll prolong it and run circles for least a minute.”

Even UFC featherweight champion Conor Mcregor says he would not like to come face-to-face in the cage with Rousey. And with her last four fights totaling just 2 minutes 10 seconds, Jones is going to need a lot more than speed to outsmart her. Although the track and field star was probably just kidding.
