Conor McGregor has recently detailed his encounter with MMA bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
Ever since Joe Rogan stated that Ronda Rousey ‘might be able to beat 50 percent’ of the mma bantamweight male fighters, the Ronda Rousey vs. Man debate has been one of the most talked about topics since. Even when Rousey’s upcoming epic battle with Correia is drawing very near already, this topic is still a hot one.
Rousey’s mere presence is enough to intimidate people. Just recently, NBA superstar LeBron James admitted that he was quite scared to introduce himself to Rousey at the ESPY awards mainly because he feared he might get his ass kicked. Conor McGregor, however, was not as fearful like LeBron was, but he admitted he was a little intimidate when they met.
In a recent interview, the MMA champ admired how fit Rousey was. “I swear on my life her back muscles were the most solid back muscles I’d ever felt in my life,” he said. He further went on saying that he thinks Rousey can tackle him down easily. “I thought if this lady was to get a hold of me, she would throw me on my head in literally one second flat. So I would not like to engage in a clinch fight with Ronda,” he added.
McGregor thinks that he and Rousey are both ruling their current division and he admits that he has nothing but respect for her.
“The Notorious” also admitted that he thinks Rousey is definitely one extraordinary fighter. “Ronda is certainly an absolute animal, and she is a special individual,” he said. “Two-time ESPYS winner, undefeated champion, dominant, finishes all opponents, movie star. I mean Ronda is unbelievable. She has created the women’s game. Without her, all these women still would be going without food at night.” he further added.
With all these praises that he has for Rousey, he quickly quipped, “But make no mistake about it: On the man’s side of the game, there’s only one, and that’s me. I hold every number in the game.”.
Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey was able to successfully put herself at the top of the women’s MMA success ladder, and if that is not enough, she is starting to create waves in the Hollywood industry as well. Aside from her string of success in the women’s bantamweight division, this beautiful woman has also appeared in top-charted movies like Entourage and Furious 7. Aside from this, Rousey has been picked to work alongside Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming movie “Mile 22”.
She is set to fight Bethe Correia for the women’s bantamweight champion title this coming August 1 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. As for Conor McGregor, he is expected to go against Jose Aldo for the official featherweight title after finishing the latest series of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Europe vs. Team USA.
