The Women's Bantamweight Title is on the Line as The Fighting Femmes Prepare For Battle!
We are just hours away from Ronda Rousey's chance to put up or shut up as the biggest grudge match in Women's MMA history takes center stage at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Rousey will challenge Miesha Tate for the Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Championship in the most high profile Women's MMA fight since Cris Cyborg beat the living crap out of Gina Carano.
Rowdy Ronda granted an interview to the Columbus Dispatch, which has had its hands full with the Arnold Classic in town. Rousey, whose rise to fame can only be compared to JEREMY LIN of the New York Knicks, stated "When I am fighting, it is the only time when I’m entirely in the present. I don’t really remember my fights, because my mind is so completely focused on the present time that I’m on 'play' not 'recording.' There is nothing that happened before, there is nothing that’s going to happen. It’s just what’s going on at that exact moment. There is only right now."
The challenger continued, "When I set my mind on something, it becomes everything about me. So when I wake up in the morning, it is not a decision on whether I should get up and train. It’s like, 'I’m awake. OK, let’s train.' A year or so ago, I said to myself, 'I want to win a title in this sport.' Once the decision was made, that was it."
