UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey fights Alexis Davis on Jul. 5 at UFC 175 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Rousey of course "don't give a damn about her bad reputation." Davis is simply, well, nice.

Like a honey badger, Rousey don't care, as she explained recently on FOX Sports' The Great MMA Debate with Damon Martin.

"It doesn't change anything for me because I'm not an emotional fighter," said Rousey as translated by David St. Martin for MMAFighting. "I have zero emotion when I go in there and fight. It could be my best friend in the world or it could be my worst enemy. I would fight them the same. I would fight Miesha Tate and Shayna Baszler in exactly the same way. I love Shayna and I can't stand Miesha but emotions have nothing to do with the way I fight. Fighting is absent of emotion for me."

However, what Davis lacks in trash talk, she makes up for in Jiu-Jitsu. Davis holds a black belt under Cesar Gracie, the first BJJ black belt Rousey has fought, creating a compelling BJJ vs. Judo angle.

"It's definitely an interesting new challenge," said Rousey. "One thing that I couldn't stand when I was just watching MMA and coming from Judo was all these people talking about how the Jiu Jitsu people would beat any Judo player. It was such a stereotype that I thought, and still think, that I could beat any girl in the world, any weight division, gi or no-gi, black belt and in any ruleset they want, in just pure Jiu Jitsu.

"I really feel like the Judokas that do excel in Newaza, which is our term for groundwork, have never really gotten enough respect. This fight against Alexis, who is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and the kind of person I've heard my whole life should be the type to tap me out no problem, would be nice to prove a point against her. Then again, I always have people saying that my striking is terrible and she's a well-noted Muay Thai fighter so any way that I can beat her I think would prove a good point."

I believe her. It's not that Judo is superior to BJJ but being an Olympic sport means the talent pool and and athleticism both reach a higher level. Phone Post 3.0

PhuckfaceMcGee - Rhonda may (or may not) be the best in the UFC but she's not the best in the world.

I don't see a gold Olympic medal Rhonda.

Never has been never will be. Phone Post 3.0

If you ever watch Judo at the Olympics they don't give you any time to work on the ground. It is very heavily focused on the "stand up" and scoring is generally done with throws and other takedowns. Ronda not winning a gold medal in Judo has nothing to do with how good her ground work is or isn't, which means it has even less to do with how she'd perform in competitive BJJ.
