“A funny thing about that. After I beat McMann in 1:06, my coach and I had a bet. He was like, ‘No one is ever going to beat a minute and six second knockout in women’s (MMA).’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, somebody is.’ I told him somebody will beat it and then we had a bet going for a couple thousand dollars. Then I beat it. No, wait, I said that nobody could beat it, that was it. So I ended up beating it myself and I didn’t know that I counted. So I actually owe my coach like five grand right now. I don’t know if I would make that bet again, but yeah, you know what, I’ll say it again. No one will ever beat 16 seconds, including myself. If I do, or somebody else does, then I owe my coach another five grand.”
During a recent UFC Fan Q&A in China (Replay HERE), UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey explained how her own dominance cost her some cash.
The UFC’s top star served as the UFC 175 co-main event in July and Knocked Out her opponent Alexis Davis in just 16 seconds. She remains undefeated, having finished all of her opponents, not named Miesha Tate, in the very first round of action.
Tate was finished in the third round of the second fight.
