The UFC women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is all set to make her second appearance in the Octagon in a rematch against Miesha Tate. The two coached opposite each other in the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter. After a lot of drama, Tate's team took the TUF title in both the women's and men's 135 lb divisions featured on the show at the TUF 18 Finale this past Saturday.
With the reality TV series officially concluded, Rousey and Tate are set to face in the co-main event of UFC 168 at the end of the month. In an effort to promote the upcoming fight, Rousey appeared The Jimmy Kimmel Show Monday night. While on the show, Rousey discussed an altercation that went down at a movie theater when she went to see Juno.
A rude group had apparently sat close to Rousey throughout the movie with one young lady placing her boots alongside the Judo champ's head. Following the film, Ronda grabbed one of the Ugg boots the viewer had been wearing and tossed it across the theater. The situation escalated as Rousey attempted to exit:
They cut me off and my friends already went past me, but the aisles and the wall made it impossible to get around me so that was kinda good like 300 style. The girls boyfriend was in front of me and was like, "you need to go get that boot." And I'm like, "She can go get that boot and her manners together." I tried to leave and the guy pushed me back. I was already thinking about my disclaimer at that point. I was like, "Okay, I'm going to try to get past you and, if you do not let met, I'm going to have to do something about this." I tried to get past again and the guy pushed me. I grabbed him by the shirt and I just started punching him with one hand. Then, his friend came behind me and had me by the neck, so I dropped the one dude and threw the one guy over my shoulder.
She went on to detail how the friends that accompanied her to the film returned and helped her quell the situation. After the altercation ended, Rousey says the remaining crowd cheered her punishment of the rude movie-goers.The show's crowd seemingly supported Rousey's actions and laughed when she told about a call from the police the following day.
Ronda's second title defense is set for December 28. She'll face Miesha Tate who stepped in for an injured Cat Zingano in the co-main event. The show will go down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
