Ronda Rousey’s nearly nonstop mainstream media blitz continued earlier this week with an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show.”
The UFC’s women’s bantamweight champion talked with Patrick about her rise to superstardom, dating, pressure, the potential for her to one day have a movie career and how her she is “refreshingly unfiltered” when it comes to the things she says and does.
Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is coming off an historic fight, headlining UFC 157 as the first women’s fight in UFC history. She stopped Liz Carmouche (8-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) with yet another first-round armbar, but not before a slightly harrowing moment early in the fight that had Carmouche on her back looking for a choke.
Outside the UFC, Rousey’s rise to fame since beating Miesha Tate for the Strikeforce title a year ago has included an appearance on the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue,” stories in mainstream magazines like Time and Rolling Stone, Showtime specials, HBO appearances, guest-hosting on TMZ, an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show and much more.
As for her next fight, Rousey very likely will meet the winner of next month’s fight between Tate and Cat Zingano, which will be the second women’s fight in UFC history.
