Ronda Rousey Said She Won't Leave A 'Gina Carano-Sized Void' When She Leaves MMA
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.18.2013



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Ronda Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) said she will not leave a "Gina Carano void" if she leaves MMA, as she is planning to do in the next couple of years. Many believe women's MMA took a huge hit when Carano left in 2009.

On Carano leaving MMA: "Everyone loved Gina and Gina really started all the interest in women's MMA, and when she left, the entire sport detonated without her. I never want to leave the sport in that state she had to when she left. I've really accomplished a lot at this point, and I'm starting to think about more than just the present moment and thinking more down the line and how I want to leave some sort of a legacy."

On where she wants women's MMA to go: "I really want there to be women's MMA fights in the UFC 20 years from now and be able to sit there and just revel in what was created the way I see Royce Gracie sitting front row to the UFC's now. I want to really be able to sit and have that look of contentment and have that smile that I see Royce with when he's at those events."

On the new strawweight division: "I'm so excited the 115-pound division was brought in," Rousey said. "A lot of them are so bright and charismatic. I really think they could carry the gauntlet in a fantastic way, and I couldn't be any happier for them. It's a lot of weight off my shoulders that there will be another women's champion out there."
