UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey had more than opponent Liz Carmouche to worry about in their UFC 157 bout. She was also worried about a possible wardrobe malfunction.
Ronda Rousey proved to UFC fans that she's a force to be reckoned with by pulling off a first-round armbar victory over Liz Carmouche late in the first round of their UFC 157 main event fight. Rousey was in a bit of trouble early in the bout for a couple of reasons though. One was the fact that Carmouche was on her back hunting for a choke. The other was a the threat of a wardrobe malfunction. Rousey explained the situation to Ariel Helwani on Fuel's UFC 157 post-fight show:
"I was thinking about my bra, actually. I kept thinking, I didn't order this one myself, so they gave me my weigh in bra for the fight. If you look back, I was adjusting myself at one point while she was on my back. Multitasking!"
She also went into more detail about the whole UFC experience, and the fight itself:
"I was trying just to ignore everything until I was out there. It was weird. I was in there just yesterday so it felt like a familiar place. It didn't seem odd at all. I think I was less nervous. I think I was most nervous for the Julia Budd fight, way back, I don't know why I was so nervous for that one. On the ground I feel so comfortable. I don't ever feel like I'm in danger, so I don't mind taking a lot of risks. I felt fine with her on my back, I was thinking more about keeping my sports bra up while she is trying to choke me. I felt very safe and in control even though it didn't look like that."
Rousey (7-0) is expected to face the winner of the Cat Zingano-Miesha Tate bout for her next title defense.
