Ronda Rousey: I have sex as much as possible pre fight
UFC women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey appeared recently on the JIM Rome show, and discussed the “women weaken legs” rule in fighting.
“For girls it raises your testosterone,” explained Rousey. “so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight actually. Not with like everybody, I don’t put out like a Craigslist ad or anything, but if I got a steady I’m going to be like ‘yo, fight time’s coming up’.”
There are limits however.
“You can’t (beep beep) somebody and go fight that day,” said Rousey with a laugh.
She concluded by citing studies done that show that male fighters who abstain for months before a fight can actually suffer decreased performance (in fighting).
So there you have it – it’s science.
