Hard to believe, but UFC female bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey says she is actually even better against southpaw fighters than orthodox ones. CagedInsider.com has learned that Rousey is very excited to finally return to facing-off against a south paw like Zingano, as her life-long training in Judo has always kept her comfort zone against the more rare south stance.
"Her stance, she's a south-paw," said Rousey in regards to Zingano. "In Judo that was the stance I was use to fighting my whole life. If you're right handed, that's the way we stand in Judo. I'm very much looking forward to that fight, turning to what's comfortable. I kind of had to relearn to fight people in an opposite stance. So yeah, I'm really looking forward to setting up a whole lot more creative takedowns from that side."
"Technically Kat has a better record than I do. She's 8-0 and I'm 7-0. [On both of them being undefeated in title fight] This is something very uncommon and very special. I think Rashad and Lyoto were the only other ones."
"I was really impressed with Kat tonight. I saw a lot of things that were helpful. I'm glad I came and saw it live." "I always said the fight that I wanted most was Kat. I'm glad that we are going to actually be fighting. On the show I would of enjoyed tormenting Miesha."
