As the current Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight champion, it is often said that Ronda Rousey could easily step into the ring with men in the same sport.
But the MMA super star has revealed that she will never fight a man because she would never encourage any situation that allows a man to hit a woman.
Speaking on The Project in Australia on Tuesday evening, the blonde athlete explained: ‘I don’t think, as a professional sport, we can have situation where an entire stadium is cheering about a man hitting a woman’.
The 28-year-old is currently in Melbourne to promote her upcoming fight with boxing champion Holly Holm, which is taking place in Australia in November.
And she was quick to share her thoughts about those who have tried to discredit her chosen sport by arguing that it is too violent.
The Olympic medalist said: ‘If they think it’s just violent then it shows their ignorance to the sport.
‘They say the arm bar is such a terrible move, but when I did it at the Olympics I was called a hero.’
