UFC 157 Media Call: Ronda Rousey Has Hash Words for Cyborg, Respect for Liz Carmouche


Ronda Rousey vs Liz Carmouche

Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche

Ronda Rousey had some harsh word for Cris “Cyborg” Santos during the UFC 157 conference call with the media, but showed nothing but respect for Liz Carmouche, her UFC 157 main event opposition.

Carmouche reciprocated, while both women had a lot to say about the UFC’s commitment to bringing them, and women’s MMA in general into the Octagon.

Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida were also on the call to discuss their co-main event bout.

Rousey and Henderson, both former Olympians, also addressed the IOC’s decision to remove wrestling from the Olympic Games.
