"I honestly don't think Rousey has what it takes to beat me. The only person that can defeat me is myself. Everybody asks, ‘Yeah, how do you not get arm barred?' You just don't get arm barred. You haven't seen anyone be able to counter is yet so you know if she's going to put those hands on you you're flipped over, you're on your back and that's the end of it. Practice makes perfect, we're just not getting arm barred, we're doing arm-bar defense, attacks, counters. It's just a matter of having enough practice. I'd definitely prefer to take this to the ground, show her that she can't armbar me.

I do think that everybody's afraid of Rousey, that's definitely one of those things that's kind of hindered people. I'm not scared. That first round is the most important part of the fight, if I can get through that it will definitely be a defeat in her eyes. This isn't going to be as easy for her as it was in the past, and that's probably the biggest hurdle for her...A lot of people say I'm just an easy person to armbar, and I'm OK with that, I'm just looking forward to proving everybody wrong."

You should let her get you in an armbar just to prove you can get out. Solid idea. Phone Post

In all honesty what's she supposed to say?  "Yeah I'll probably get armbrred".

she didnt act or fight intimidated...

 

the one advantage in mma that women have over men is that they are irrational...so even if they are facing huge odds, they can ignore the logic and just go with what they are emotionally feeling

Imagine this going 5 rounds. Maybe Ronda will do it on purpose to prove she has cardio and can win a standup war. I'd like all invicta and whoever women come to the UFC now to bring in more contenders, and more weight classes. As much as people hate cyborg for some reason (big deal, she roided, it's not the first time in mma history), she's an exciting addition.

"Practice makes perfect, we're just not getting arm barred, we're doing arm-bar defense, attacks, counters. It's just a matter of having enough practice."

The problem with that statement is that RR has been practicing applying that arm-bar for about two (2) decades.

I'm not saying that RR's arm-bar is indefensible, but I am not at all sure that Carmouche is the one to stop it.

Most disturbed by that sentence!

We all know what will happen. Liz will defend and escape all of Ronda's armbar attempts, frustrating her madly. Liz then holds her down on the ground, completely neutralizing all of Ronda's movements. Suddenly, their eyes lock, their hands touch, and their lips connect. The ref can't help but allow it to continue, the judges toss their pens and notepads away, and the crowd gets louder than brazil and canada combined.

She should have said that I`ll show that Ronda can`t beat me.Big deal if she avoids the armbar if she comes up on the losing end.

Interviewer) Did you win or lose the Rousey fight?"

Carmouche) I lost,but it wasn`t by armbar.
