Ronda Rousey plans to fight Gina Carano in her next match in the ring. And Arnie and Sly ogled her at the moment when the premiere of The Expendables 3 was taking place.
Ronda said that there were very few female pugilists who had perfected the TKO technique of theirs. And Gina was one of them. This was something she had to be extra careful about since a stray punch could lay her flat on the floor.
“Gina is the worst style matchup for me possible,” Rousey told MMAJunkie. “She’s the only girl that I feel like has the best feeling and the best sense of distance.
“There are very few women that have had one-punch knockout power. There are other girls that they overwhelm the other person. They get TKOs and stuff like that. But Gina has one-punch knockout power, and that’s the kind of person that I have to be the most cautious of. That’s the style that’s the worst for me, and ever since the beginning, I’ve been positive that Gina is the worst style matchup for me.”
In fact, Ronda spoke of how Gina could be her worst nightmare. Gina Carano meanwhile is making a comeback after her loss to Christiane Justino half a decade ago. She is a crowd favorite.
However, Ronda won’t give up without a desperate fight. She is famous for ending her previous two fights in a minute and a half flat. Gina on the other hand is totally ready to take on Ronda.
“The feeling of distance and timing and feeling and all that, that stuff doesn’t go away if you take time off,” Rousey said. “Those things are always with you. That’s your bicycle.
“And I’m sure Gina is 100 percent serious about it. She is not going to start training once the fight is announced. She’s already been training for months and months and months. I think she’s already started quite a while ago, and she only has me in mind, and so I expect that she’s going to be extremely prepared and a very dangerous opponent despite what other people would like to speculate.”
Ronda contends that she doesn’t arrange any fights. She just attends the matches and wins them by sheer luck and total preparedness.
“I desperately want to fight on the Jon Jones-Cormier card,” Rousey said. “I want to be able to share that card with Jon just to be able to say I have.”
“If she walked in here right now and they said, ‘It’s sanctioned, it’s legal, she won’t sue, and you can fight her,’ I would fight her right now,” Rousey said. “I said it the other day: I don’t make fights. I show up and win them.”
Meanwhile, Ronda decided to undergo a change of scenery by dressing up in a beautiful red ensemble while the premiere of The Expendables 3 was taking place in China.
Alongside her were Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and both of them were quite surprised by looking at a tough female appearing to be so delicately sexy and beautiful in a red dress.
They just kept gazing at her in mute admiration, according to MMAMania. Ronda obviously had to wear a different kit for the red carpet and so she ended up being a source of eye candy for Arnie and Sly who are alpha males in their own right.
Ronda is getting a much-needed break before her fight with Gina. And she will get to recuperate in this interregnum of sorts.
