During the post-fight press conference, Ronda Rousey, Josh Thomson, and Sarah Kaufman talk about their victories at last night's Strikeforce event. Here are the highlights brought to us by E. Casey Leydon, of MMA Fighting:
Quick quotes after the jump.
I didn't feel in danger at any time. I knew that if Miesha got in any position like on top or the back, that she would just stall out. I didn't feel in danger from any of her submissions at all.
...I'm not wearing short shorts again. That crossed my mind in the middle of the match, and I'm like "Oh my god! These damn shorts!". And I can't have that in my mind.
I can tell you now, you guys will never see me fight like that again... I wasn't happy with my performance. I was very emotional after. Disturbed. I don't like being booed. People don't pay hard earned money to watch that. I felt like I dominated the fight, won every round. But to me, that's not what people spend their hard earned money for.
This is the entertainment business, not the boring business. I was almost in tears in the back, cause I don't like being booed.
Clearly I like to strike. Based on my face, I also like to get hit. But Ronda hasn't been challenged by someone who can strike the way I strike. But uhm, I trained a lot of ground. I'm working towards my yellow belt in Judo, so look out Ronda, that Judo is coming for you.
