After making the statement, reports are that a passerby stopped, having identified Rousey and asked a question. “Wait, didn’t you get bronze at the 2008 Olympics?”
“Yes,” the ever-confident Rousey replied.
“In judo?” the passerby asked.
“The thing that you specialized in your whole life? You got bronze in it. In the under 154 pounds category…and now you fight in the under 135 pound division.”
“What the f***s your point?” Rousey asked; visibly annoyed at being interrupted and completely ambivalent to the irony. At which point the bystander shrugged and continued walking.
Oddly enough, after the interview, Rousey did not give any greater details to whom she could defeat. She made no mention of Michelle Nicolini, Kyra Gracie, Luanna Alzuguir, Hannette Staack, Emily Kwok, Leticia Ribeiro, Beatriz Mesquita, Penny Thomas, Laura Cordeiro, Andresa Correa or Gabi Garcia (who counts as two opponents).
Some speculation is that the brash young champion had simply run out of sound bites having constantly been in the media eye since exploding onto the UFC stage. After all, when one isn’t just able to give someone the finger, sometimes the smart, well-thought out statements are hard to come by.
At the time of publication, none of the aforementioned grapplers were reached for comment, but, I mean, come on!
