Liz Carmouche asks Dana White for first title shot at Ronda Rousey

Sunday, December 02, 2012

The always awesome Aaron Tru caught up with the always awesome Liz Carmouche, who is asking UFC President Dana White to let her have the first shot at Female UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.

Highlight from the interview include:
•I want to be a part of history, in the UFC, fighting Ronda Rousey for the title.
•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 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.
•Ronda is not a person whose submisisons you can power out of; I have to use traditional escapes or not get caught in the first place.
•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.
•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.
•Liz credits her Coach Manny for coming up with Team Lizbo….The Lizbo fan base is strong.
