Just recently, women’s MMA bantamweight champion Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey went to a Reddit AMA and there were a lot of questions answered. Fans quickly posted what they wanted to know about the bantamweight champion; some even asked Rousey what her favorite food was and whole lot of other questions. With all of the buzz about Rousey and Cyborg’s controversial fight, it is not surprising that fans will throw some questions about this issue.
There were a number of questions that Rousey answered during the AMA, but here are the most interesting ones the fans and the media posted:
riceomatic69: Favourite male fighter to watch in the UFC?
“Demetrious Johnson. I think he’s the most well-rounded and I feel like I’m watching one of the later episodes of Dragon Ball Z when you only see one second of action going on between them disappearing ‘cuz they’re going so damn fast. I wouldn’t be surprised if rocks start levitating around the ring because of all the energy emanating from it. Might Mouse vs. Dominick Cruz was one of my favorite (and most under-appreciated) fights ever.”
Knuckledork: What is your sincere opinion about Cyborg?
“Sincere opinion about Cyborg: she’s just waiting to be offered enough money to get her ass kicked (‘cuz she knows she’ll get her ass kicked). I know for a fact she can make the weight. She consulted with Mike Dolce (my current nutritionist) before I ever started working with him and after consulting with her he said he could get her in “the best shape of her life” at 135. She then started being represented by Tito Ortiz and all talk stopped. The delay is all about money, not her weight. She made 145 pumped full of steroids. She can healthily make 135 without them. Her shows that she headlines lose thousands of dollars, and the majority of the tickets are given away because no one will buy them. She needs me. So pretty much we’re waiting for her to realize that she needs to fight me before I retire or she’ll never have enough money to retire. I would like me kicking her ass be my retirement fight but whether she steps up or not I’ll walk away undefeated and happily ever after regardless.”
Knuckledork: Do you think you would legitimately beat Floyd Mayweather in a ruleless fight?
“Do I think I would legit beat Mayweather in a ruleless fight? Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time. He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don’t get into “matches”. I fight for a living. In a no rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet. Boxing is a sweet science with strict rules that I respect very much and aspire every day to improve at. But you said ruleless fight, and that’s my honest answer.”
2rinity: What’s your go-to hype music before a fight?
“I have complete silence before I walk out before a fight. No talking in the locker room, no music, cellphones on silent. If I hear a ding from you taking a video you’re gonna get your own private Rowdy Glare.”
