“Actually, I kind was (shocked). Truthfully, I don’t know how it works. I never knew when I was going to get the shot. I’m just trying to be patient and keep getting better every day, so when it did come along, I was the best possible fighter I could be. It definitely was surprising, but I wanted it for quite awhile and to be the world champion was my original goal when I started. So, it was a welcome surprise.”
“My significant other and I both felt like this couldn’t have come at a better time. It feels very right to us. That’s what makes us very excited about it because if it had come off some kind of controversy or like, different fights have a different feel to them, some with a more negative perception. This one just feels like the perfect timing.”
“[Rousey] looked pretty comfortable on her feet. In my mind, there’s not one specific area that I want to win that I think is going to make a huge difference. I need to win in every area to beat the champion. If it goes to decision, it’s very hard to beat the champion, so you have to definitely dominate in every area. That’s how I feel.”
In a recent interview with ‘The MMA Hour‘ UFC 170 headliner and female bantamweight title challenger, Sarah McMann, discussed her upcoming title fight against Ronda Rousey.
