When Strikeforce bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey enters the ring this weekend to defend her title against former divisional queen Sarah Kaufman she’ll undoubtedly have her game-face on. However, this past Saturday night “Rowdy Ronda” decided to keep things far less serious in relation to Kaufman during a video message she taped responding to an online challenge the top contender made to her fans on Twitter.
Kaufman went on the social networking site to offer up a pair of tickets to her bout with Rousey for the best impersonation of the outspoken Olympic medalist. Though obviously not in need of access to the event, Rousey took advantage of the opportunity by making fun of herself under the name “Ronda Roozie” where she wished Kaufman luck in the upcoming clash.
“You’re totally gonna knock her out. She needs to be knocked out. I mean, why would she want to get a title-shot as quick as possible when she had a bunch of sh*tty jobs? She should just sit around and still work a sh*tty job and wait for her turn like the best of us,” mocked Rousey. “Just knock that girl out. She sucks!”
“She thinks she’s awesome and you need to remind her that she’s not. She’s not cool and she’s not pretty. Punch her in the boob,” she continued, pointing to a strike Kaufman landed in her previous bout.
Rousey is unlikely to tell any jokes when she and Kaufman come face-to-face in five days. The unbeaten champion has finished all of the opponents she’s faced thus far by way of opening round submission, while Kaufman is 15-1 and on a three-fight winning streak.
