That’s what she says…
- Ronda Rousey recently spoke about the evolution of her striking game and more. Here are the highlights…
On Her Striking: My MMA striking is the best in the game."
On Learning The Striking Game: "It definitely is a challenge," she says. "With judo I spent so many years with a certain posture that the hardest thing was adjusting it."
On The Evolution of Her Striking: "I've reached a certain level of competition where what's required out of striking to come into the clinch to grapple is a lot more complicated than at the lower levels," Rousey says. "It requires much more high-level footwork and striking to be able to use grappling at all."
On Women's MMA: "It's a younger side of the sport that's still developing," she says. "It's going to need a little more time before we can reach the same standard the guys are at because they had a big head start."
On Saturday's Fight With Sara McMann: "I approach every fight like I'm fighting for a new belt," Rousey says. "It doesn't matter who you're fighting. You don't start with an extra score on the scoreboard because you won the last fight."
