We’ve heard mixed responses from previous fighters and coaches of the long running Ultimate Fighter series — their actions are either taken out of context or portrayed accurately. For UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey, it was in her opinion, not her best side highlighted in the filming.
“How could people possibly know who you are from a couple of clips of a video that people are seeing out of context?” Rousey asked. “That’s no way for people to get to know you, so I’m just preparing for people to get the worst idea of who I am.”
Regardless of the ill-feelings, the champ is selfless enough to see the good that came from the show, but has no interest in filming another season.
“I think it was very good for the women’s division, and I think it definitely needed to happen, but you couldn’t pay me $10 million to do it again,” Rousey said.
UFC President Dana White has reminded media that Rousey and her nemesis are in no shape or form, “friends.”
“These two aren’t best friends,” White said. “They don’t hang out on weekends. They don’t send each other birthday cards or Christmas presents.
“As you get caught up in the moment, you do things, then reflect and think back on it like, ‘Jesus, this is going to be on TV in front of the whole world.’ It starts to freak you out.”
Rousey is said to currently be on set in Bulgaria filming The Expendables 3, She’s also expected to be filming for Fast & Furious 7 shortly after.
