Ronda Rousey’s Former Olympic Teammate Coming to MMA?

Harrison and Rousey

Back in the 2008 Olympics where Ronda Rousey won her bronze medal, she was training with an 18 year old girl who apparently hated losing as much as she did: Kayla Harrison. Harrison would go on to win the gold medal in judo in 2012 and is now entertaining the idea of fighting in mixed martial arts.

In an interview with NBC Sports, Harrison stated that MMA may be what’s next for her.

“We go back and forth. It’s pretty tempting at times. Who doesn’t want to be famous? Who doesn’t want to be rich? Who doesn’t yearn for all of those things at some point in their life? Who knows, maybe after Rio, [MMA] is what I’ll want to do.”
