UFC Champion Ronda Rousey Would Rather Die Than Lose
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey made an appearance on the Jim Rome Show, which will air tonight on Showtime. A clip was released of the appearance to help promote the show, in which Rousey revealed to Jim that she’d rather die than to feel the pain of losing.
Here’s what she said:
“I would rather die than lose. I know that feeling so well. It’s not that I never lost it’s that I’ve lost at the worst times so I know what a loss is. And, that’s why I want to win so much more than the other girls.
My mom was the world champion in Judo and she’s the first American to ever do it. I had my shot to be like my mom and win the world championship in Judo and I lost. It feels like dying to me. I’d rather die.”
Ronda Rousey’s mentality is just another one of the reasons she’s likely the most dominant female fighter of all time. Rousey has won all ten of her pro MMA fights via stoppage. Only one of those fights went past the first round.
Ronda Rousey will look to continue her dominance in the Octagon when she faces Cat Zingano, officially the next title contender. The fight could take place at UFC 182, on January 3rd, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here’s a bonus clip from the interview.
