Ronda Rousey was booed after the fight with Sarah McMann during UFC 170 but the MMA fighter has told fans in the past she just doesn’t care.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, MMA fighter Matt Brown dissed the Women’s UFC by saying the only way the matches would be worthwhile if they featured Ronday Rousey nude. Ouch. But a charity photo actually featured Ronda Rousey nude, and she’s also discussed posing for Playboy magazine, so it’s not like she isn’t completely adverse to nudity.
the UFC 170 match of Rousey vs McCann was extremely quick and that’s why fans started booing. But immediately following the fight Ronda says she was just doing what was necessary:
“I didn’t think it was too soon. Obviously, that’s why we have a referee in there. I just went to that spot.”
Funnily enough, McMann said she should have been quicker:
“Looking back, it seem kind of quick. I should get up quicker. If you want to win fights, you have to get up quicker. When I hit the ground, I got my bearings back. When I heard his voice, I was reaching for a leg.”
Anyone who recalls watching Ronda Rousey after UFC 168 will probably remember how she snubbed Tate’s offer of a handshake. Worse, she even failed to be good sport even after she won the match:
“Rousey looked at Tate and walked away, refusing to shake hands. The fans responded with a thunderous series of boos. The booing was so loud that when Rousey was being interviewed by Joe Rogan in the cage after her win, it was virtually impossible to hear her speaking.”
Some analysts believe UFC has set her up as the bad guy who fans love to hate. While UFC fights are real and not staged like the WWE, some say it’s possible that Dana White has learned a thing or two from the way Vince McMahon sets up the stories and drama that occur outside of the ring.
And if you check out this interview with Ronda Rousey after UFC 168 it seems she embraces the boos she engenders from the way she fights:
Do you think Ronda Rousey is behaving this way on purpose or do you think the UFC is starting to get like the WWE?
