“Cat is different because, not only is she undefeated, but she has the kind of indomitable spirit that I haven’t seen exhibited by anyone else, at the level that she has. She’s been down in fights before and every single time, she’s come back and finished the other person. And, given everything she’s been through lately, in her life outside of fighting, I really feel like she’s one of those people that’s impossible to intimidate, so I don’t even try.”

“I’ve never gone to the ground with a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu blackbelt before. Alexis (Davis) was a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu blackbelt, but I didn’t get there. I’ve never been tested that way on the ground. Her first discipline was actually wrestling, and a lot of people forget that. She’s a very strong grappler, but everyone knows her for her striking because it’s obvious that her striking is an extreme strong suit.

In a new interview with FOX Sports, UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey explained why she won’t be going for the mental edge in next week’s UFC 184 headliner against Cat Zinagno.
