Yes, life is good for Rousey, whose biggest problem right now is recovering from all of the excitement.

"I've been not moving as much as possible," Rousey said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "It's just been so tiring not just physically but mentally. I just feel like I've been tense and holding my shoulders higher or something like that for months on end, and I finally just have just tons of relaxation and I really just don't want to move. So I'm very relaxed. It feels very relaxing to be champion."

Asked about the sentiment behind Caraway's tweet, that she could not compete with a man, Rousey laughed.

"Of course I can, dude," she said. "Who is he? You never heard of him if it wasn’t for Miesha. He's just some dude. He's not even like a legit fighter. He's just some random guy that likes fighting."

Referee Mark Matheny has taken some fire for letting the fight continue to the point Tate's arm was in danger, but Rousey said he made the right call.

"He was trying to respect her and her choice, and she was choosing to let it go," she said. "She could’ve given up at anytime. If he stopped it sooner, they would have said, 'Oh he stopped it before she tapped.' Anything we do in that kind of situation, people are going to find a way to criticize."

Love it! Ronda is becoming a household name and is a champ. Bryan Tate is an under card fighter and has no name recognition. I've heard more about him these last two weeks leading into the title fight than I did while he was on TUF and his fights. He should be thanking Ronda for even mentioning his name.

 Bryan's not THAT random.  WEC, Strikeforce and beat Dustin Neace on TUF14.  I think this would be a great fight actually.  C'mon, battle of the sexes.  Tennis did it.  Give them headgear if u must, but can we get this set up at some gym / arby's parking lot? pleeeeaase?

Cyborg is a roided freak. Rousey should demand olympic style blood testing b4 that fight if it happens .. but like money mayweather..


Cyborg is obviously not comfortable in her own fighting abilities .. which is why she juiced to the max

The more Ronda talks, the more annoying she gets.

Wow, Ronda is ignorant. She has 5 fights compared to Caraway's 21. He's in the UFC, she's in Strikeforce. Does she think being rude to everyone is the way to gain respect?

Grappling, she could probably give Caraway all he could handle, but let him get a clean of a shot as Miesha got on her and it's goodnight sweet Ronda.


I love her though Phone Post

Yeah, she has 5 fights and is already a world champion in the biggest stage for WMMA while Bryan Tate has 21 fights and can barely get on an undercard...I say she's doing just fine.

I really want to see both Ronda and Sarah fight again, I'm excited they're fighting each other. I'm sure the build up to the fight won't be nearly as dramatic as her fight with Tate, but I'll be damned if the fight isn't fun while it lasts.

Great job by the ladies this weekend.
