Check out the interview below were Rousey called out the Strikeforce women’s champion at 135 pounds, Miesha Tate:
“Yes, that’s still what I want to do,” said Rousey, She competed Saturday at 145 pounds but wants to drop to 135. “Strikeforce, let me get a crack at her (Tate) first.”
A former Olympic bronze medalist in judo, Rousey just might be the most powerful female fighter under 150 pounds in the world. Budd, a Muay Thai specialist, landed two quick punches but could not prevent Rousey from muscling in for the clinch and swiftly securing the takedown. From there, Rousey mounted and exploded into a gnarly armbar that awkwardly contorted Budd’s arm and that was difficult to watch.
In victory, Rousey improved to 4-0 and none of her bouts has lasted longer than 49 seconds. Budd fell to 2-2.
