Rousey successful in her first UFC title fight...
UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey appeared on Fuel TV's UFC 157 post-fight show to discuss her win over Liz Carmouche in the main event of UFC 157:
Rousey on if she was nervous entering the Octagon after all the build-up to the fight: "Not really. When I was in there, it seemed like I was just in there yesterday. It seemed like a familiar place. I was more nervous for the Julia Budd fight. I don't know why."
Rousey on what she was thinking when Carmouche got her back: "I was thinking about my bra, I didn't pick this one out actually, so they gave me my weigh-in bra for the fight and I was adjusting myself when she was on my back. Next time I should get my own stuff, I guess."
Rousey on if she knew the round was nearly over when she applied the armbar: "I was worried I was running out of time, I take my time a lot more in MMA than I did in judo, I was trying to take my time and do it right, but I didn't know how much time had passed."
Rousey on if she was surprised how tough Carmouche was: "I knew she was tough and I was expecting to go five rounds. Ten seconds difference and it could have gone a different way and we would have been in round two. Much respect to her."
Rousey on her next opponent: I'm going out to Vegas to see the fight between Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano and I'm interested in taking the winner."
