WMMA star Liz Carmouche has nothing but respect for the first ever Female UFC Champion Ronda Rousey. In the video below, shot by Aaron Tru and Adrian Gallegos from MMAprime.tv, Carmouche credits Rousey for the inception of women into the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
However, Carmouche does go on to say that she is the #1 contender at 135lbs and has earned the privileged of fighting Rousey for the title, when women compete for the first time inside of the Octagon.
Paraphrased sound bytes from the video
: -Carmouche also agrees with Rousey about having as much sex as possible prior to a fight; citing that sex will naturally lower your estrogen level, while increasing your testosterone.
-I have teammates jump my back and arm bar me, because I didn’t have a mom like Ronda who would wake me up with an arm bar.
-Ronda is not a person to power out of (arm bar) I have to use traditional escapes or not get caught in the first place.
-I had a chance once against Marloes…I may have lost, but it was a learning experience…I’m ready for a championship bout again.
-I train non stop all the time…that dedication has to be there…this is a way of life.
-Liz credits her Coach Manny for coming up with Team Lizbo….The Lizbo fan base is strong.
-There are hurdles and adversity I have gone through that people haven’t…
-Ronda hasn’t experienced the difficulties of my life and never will.
-I want to be a part of history, in the UFC, fighting Ronda Rousey for the title.
