Ronda Rousey’s Top 5 Reddit Responses
Knuckledork: What is your sincere opinion about Cyborg?
Rousey: 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.
2RINITY: What’s your go-to hype music before a fight?
Rousey: 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.
Throwaway-to-Stay: What do you think about the pornstar calling herself “Ronda ArouseMe”?
Rousey: It’s funny I used to hear that in high school sometimes! At least some girl somewhere is paying her bills with it now.
Tenglishbee: As a guy, how do I keep from becoming a DNB?
Rousey: Well… try to be more self-sufficient and less cabana boy. 😉
trilobiting: Do you ever think ‘Finish Her!’ in a Mortal Kombat announcer voice when you’re taking down an opponent? In all seriousness, what’s your top piece of advice for young (and not so young) women looking to get into MMA or other competitive fighting oriented sports?
Rousey: Only in post.The advice: for any woman trying to break into a male-dominated career, I’d say the greatest thing you can do is always keep in mind that you always have the right to be there.
