“On paper, she’s an amazing athlete, and athletically you could say we’re very close to equals, and that’s why people are so excited about this fight. But I think that I’m more of a fighter than she is. I can tell that this title is not as important to her as it is to me....

Ronda Rousey On Sara McMann: “She’s trying to rip away everything I worked for, and that’s not very nice.”

Ronda Rousey doesn’t like Miesha Tate. That might be one of the biggest understatements I could write about the women’s UFC bantamweight champion.

And even after Ronda completely dominated her arch-rival in their championship bout at UFC 168,...
