She was inspired...
Ronda Rousey spoke with MMAjunkie about being inspired by Gina Carano and more. Check out a highlight:
On her early inspiration: "After I saw Gina Carano fight, I would secretly already think about it, and it was too stupid to ever mention" Rousey said. "I would get shot down, I knew, if I said anything like it. I remember, actually, being in Wakefield, Massachusetts, and walking over to Home Depot where I was cashier, listening to my headphones, thinking about what it would be like to be an MMA champion. Then I was just like, ‘It's so stupid.'"
