Right after he fight, Ronda Rousey sat down to speak about her now infamous armbar against Miesha Tate, making Rousey the new Women’s Strikeforce Bantamweight Champion.
“Her defense was a lot better than I thought it would be, she’s very good at creating spaces.”
“I feel like my ground game is so much better than any of the other girls, that what makes my game so affective is I take a lot of risks in everything that I do, I don’t mind giving up position because I know that I’m not in any danger. I know that even if she totally sunk a rear-naked choke, that she wouldn’t be able to tap me out, even if she totally had an armbar, I would be able to get out of it”
“So, I didn’t feel threatened by her at all, so I didn’t mind taking a lot of risks in trying to attack.”
