Female mixed martial arts star Ronda Rousey joins Jim Rome to discuss the pros and cons of sexual activity before a big fight. Watch Rousey explain her own personal preference regarding the intimate subject. The former Strikeforce champion and now UFC champion also had the following tidbits in her first major public appearance since moving to the UFC:
* On UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre stating he doesn’t enjoy watching Women’s MMA:
“Initially, the way he said it, it reminds me a lot like when you listen to boxing fans that are like, ‘Oh, the MMA fighters, they’re good athletes, and they’re talented and good for them, but I can’t stand to see guys humping on the ground like that. It’s not a real man’s sport. Good for them, that they make money,’ they’re kind of prejudiced against it, he seems to have very much that same kind of prejudice toward women in MMA, and he said it as tactfully as possible. That doesn’t make it a tactful thing to say.”
* On getting into fights outside of the cage:
“Yes, I got into a fight with a couple of guys at the end of 2007, before the Olympics, in a movie theater, it was four couples, so four guys and four girls. One girl tried to get into it. And I had two friends with me, who held off two of the guys, so I was only really handling two guys by myself. They sued me for assault because it didn’t really go too well for them. I guess if you lose a fight in Santa Monica, the next option is to sue. Everyone in the theater was cheering for me. I was thinking I might have a future in this.”
