More From Ronda Rousey Reddit AMA; Thoughts On Her Fight Length, True Opionion Of Cyborg, Can She Beat Floyd Mayweather In A ‘Fight?’

ufc 190As noted, UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey recently conducted a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session. 

Rousey answered questions about the length of her fights, her favorite male fighter to watch, her thoughts on Cris Cyborg and Floyd Mayweather, and much more. You can read a few excerpts below: 

Her favorite male fighter? 

Demetrious Johnson. I think he’s the most well-rounded and I feel like I’m watching one of the later episodes of Dragon Ball Z when you only see one second of action going on between them disappearing ‘cuz they’re going so damn fast. I wouldn’t be surprised if rocks start levitating around the ring because of all the energy emanating from it. Might Mouse vs. Dominick Cruz was one of my favorite (and most under-appreciated) fights ever.

Does she wish her fights lasted longer? 

No because the shorter my fights are, the more fights I can have. I only have a finite amount of fight time, and I’d like to fight as long as possible.

How long will she continue to fight?

I don’t think of it as “time” or “matches” left – I think of it more as fight time left. So… if I have a few 5 round wars I’m not going to keep fighting nearly as long as if I keep walking out of the cage with unscathed victories. So the faster and more efficient my fights are, the longer I can fight.

What is her honest opinion of Cris Cyborg; could she beat Floyd Mayweather in a fight? 

Sincere opinion about Cyborg: she’s just waiting to be offered enough money to get her ass kicked (‘cuz she knows she’ll get her ass kicked). I know for a fact she can make the weight. She consulted with Mike Dolce (my current nutritionist) before I ever started working with him and after consulting with her he said he could get her in “the best shape of her life” at 135. She then started being represented by Tito Ortiz and all talk stopped. The delay is all about money, not her weight. She made 145 pumped full of steroids. She can healthily make 135 without them. Her shows that she headlines lose thousands of dollars, and the majority of the tickets are given away because no one will buy them. She needs me. So pretty much we’re waiting for her to realize that she needs to fight me before I retire or she’ll never have enough money to retire. I would like me kicking her ass be my retirement fight but whether she steps up or not I’ll walk away undefeated and happily ever after regardless.

Do I think I would legit beat Mayweather in a ruleless fight? Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time. He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don’t get into “matches”. I fight for a living. In a no rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet. Boxing is a sweet science with strict rules that I respect very much and aspire every day to improve at. But you said ruleless fight, and that’s my honest answer.
