Rousey: Carmouche 'one clever chick'

by Heidi Fang |

On not training with the Diaz brothers for her UFC debut:
We're kind of doing our own thing and renting out a gym and a house up in Big Bear and doing that, we're bringing people in. You know, they got own huge fight coming up. I think one of the reasons why so many MMA fighters get injured is that a lot of people do their fight camps together. Whereas, like boxers, they take their fight camp and center it all around one person. So I'm kind of spoiled like that. I like my own, it's all about me, I want my fight camp to be about me." Ronda joked.

On her upcoming HBO special:
They're following me around and doing a feature, hopefully it'll turn out really, really well. I know that they've been very hesitant to cover MMA in the past, and I hope that this is like them genuinely being interested in wanting to cover it and not them trying to poke fun at us. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, them seem to be very, very nice."

On Liz Carmouche being so nice:
She's smart, she's one clever chick, yea, for sure. We had to do staredowns for the promos and stuff and sometimes get in face or something, that hypes me up, and she was very, very much the opposite. I'm still gonna take her and see if her and her girlfriend want to go surfing after the fight, regardless of the outcome."

I think more and more fighters would do this if they could.

It's a valid point. If you can afford to bring in a great group of trainers/sparring partners to focus 100% on you, why not go for it?

Huh... Funny how Honda echo's dfwjr's exact same opinion on training camps catering to teams as opposed to just on person. Probably just a cowinkeedink.

Is "surfing" code for something?

Is there anyone else that has trained in Big Bear and has had success having their camps there? All I can think of is Tito and I'm uncertain but I think once he started training there he began his decline. Tito is also her manager right? I wonder how long she's going to last as champ.
