Video: Ronda Rousey body language breakdown

Body language expert Mark Bowden breaks down the Ronda Rousey through her Strikeforce and UFC career.

Mark Bowden of TRUTHPLANE is a body language expert who works with politicians and Fortune 500 companies. He helps VIPs with the subtle movements that can give them an upper hand at the negotiating table or in the boardroom.

We asked Bowden to watch footage of famous fighters and asked him to tell us what can be learned from their body language. Bowden, who had no clue about anything related to MMA, broke down the fighters’ actions and — on more than one occasion — predicted something quite profound about what would happen in their careers.

In the first of this series of videos, Bowden watches the career of Ronda Rousey. Here Mark watches Rousey go from Strikeforce women’s champ to UFC megastar. Then he sees her during her declining years in MMA (before she would attain WWE stardom). Check out what he thought her body language revealed about these times in her life by clicking the video above.

You can see more of Bowden on his official site, his YouTube channel or on twitter. You can also watch his TED talk on body language below:

Watch out for more of these videos in the near future, where you’ll see analyses of Conor McGregor, Jon Jones, and the Diaz brothers.
