- Ronda Rousey recently spoke about the possible fight with Gina Carano and more. Here are the highlights…
On The Possible Fight With Gina Carano: I think Gina is the worst style match up for me actually. One of the reasons why I've been so excited to fight her, was because she has that feeling of distance, and that feeling of timing, and mobility to put those touches in her punches where she has that one punch knockout power. There's a lot of other girls that they're strong, but they don't have that feeling. So they overwhelm people and they only get TKOs. There's none of that one punch knockout power, and that's the kind of thing that you don't lose. It's that kind of thing that stays with you even if you take time off. I think styles do make fights, and style wise, Gina is the absolute worst match up for me. That's why I've been wanting to fight her for a while, because she could be one of my biggest challenges.
Can Carano Make 135?: She's been the one insisting on fighting at 135, so yeah, I would love to fight her at 135. I prefer that, definitely. I feel like there's where I'm at my athletic peak.
On How Much Weight She Cuts: I walk into the Octagon around 148, and I usually walk around at 150.
