Ronda Rousey:
“In judo, I didn’t know what a cheer was, cheers are what’s new. I took the name “Rowdy” after “Rowdy” Roddy Piper because he was such a great showman. I wanted to put on a good show. I respect Miesha very much as a competitor but I can’t respect a fighter who did what she did and I cannot shake her hand because of it. Going more than one round was a good experience. In judo, I had to go five founds. The experience is good, going longer than one round. I needed that experience in the octagon, and as my mom said, better to get it in a win than in a loss. I feel fine. I was much worse off after the Liz Carmouche fight, where she dislocated my jaw. I feel pretty good other than a scratch under my eye. I’m looking forward to a little time off and celebrating Christmas with my family.”

Miesha Tate:
“The fight is still very fresh and it’s difficult to take a morale victory from this. In time I’m sure I’ll see it that way but right now it’s very hard.”
