Further endearing herself to scores of fans everywhere, while possibly scaring the living daylights out of a smaller, shadier portion, Strikeforce bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey recently elaborated on a story that had surfaced in recent months surrounding a physical confrontation she experienced years back while watching a movie.
Rousey, while as a guest on ESPN’s Highly Questionable with Dan LeBatard, brought the unsanctioned bout up while addressing earlier comments she’d made about beating up former title-holder Miesha Tate’s boyfriend Bryan Caraway, a 135-pounder on the UFC‘s roster.
“I got jumped by a bunch of guys in a movie theater and I beat them up and then everyone clapped. and then I was like, ‘Maybe I should fight in front of people, people tend to like it.’ That was one of my first MMA experiences,” Rousey stated.
“They wouldn’t let me leave and they pushed me. So, I was technically in the ‘kidnap situation,’ I learned this from my lawyer, and was fearing for my life, so I had to defend myself. So I did defend myself very well … and so they sued me. Whatever,” she continued in a ho-hum manner. “The good thing was, it was an aisle, so I had them between the seats and the wall, so they couldn’t get around me, so I had them one at a time. So, it was actually a good situation for a multi-person fighting situation.”
Perhaps Caraway, who Rousey called “some average to below average MMA guy”, should watch out after all.
