Ronda Rousey UFC 157 Pre 10UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey says she will not tap out to a choke and is willing to die to win.

Rousey’s rise through Strikeforce Challengers to UFC titleholder has been captivating.  An athlete doesn’t achieve the level of UFC champion and Olympic medalist without being driven and fueled by an unwavering determination.

When things get tough, like they did in the opening round of her UFC debut when Liz Carmouche took her back and applied a neck crank, Rousey thinks about priorities.

“I’m going to find a way out of this or die trying,” she said during the UFC Fan Expo in Las Vegas.
