    'Creed' Stars Admit Ronda Rousey Would Destroy Rocky's Protégé

    Michael B. Jordan got in the best shape of his life to play Adonis Creed, but even his director and co-star admit he wouldn’t stand a chance against UFC champ Ronda Rousey.   When Yahoo Movies sat down with the cast of the upcoming Rocky sequel/spinoff Creed in Philadelphia, they laughed at the very thought of Jordan taking on Rousey, who’s considered by many to be the world’s best fighter — and who’s set to defend her Bantam Weight Championship this weekend at UFC 193. “I wouldn’t put him anywhere near her, man,” Ryan Coogler, Jordan’s director in both Creed and Fruitvale Station. She’s too good of a grappler.” Even Sylvester Stallone, who played the big screen’s greatest underdog, has his doubts about Jordan facing off against Rousey.

    Sylvester Stallone returns as Rocky Balboa in this new film from ‘Fruitvale Station’ director Ryan Coogler, which sees Apollo Creed’s son Adonis (Michael B Jordan) stepping in to the ring in a bid to emulate his father’s success. Here’s the official synopsis: Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

    Fans of the earlier movies will remember Mickey, the wily old trainer played by Burgess Meredith, making Rocky chase a chicken in a back alley in Philadelphia. In Rocky II, the Italian Stallion took part in the off-beat drill as he prepared for a title fight rematch with heavyweight champ Apollo, giving the scene some nice symmetry with the evidently more rural re-enactment that is being shot for Coogler’s film.
