Ronda Rousey responds to Jon Jones: 'I'm owed a little bit of help damnit

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

UFC women's Bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey has no problem with the UFC pushing her a little harder than some of their other champs.

Last week UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones told Bloody Elbow's Trent Reinsmith that he didn't "always see eye-to-eye with the UFC" and that he didn't know if they were "necessarily pushing me" but that "they are pushing Ronda Rousey really hard."

Rousey was asked about Jones' comments on this week's UFC 170 media conference call and here's her response:

"I feel like, I'm owed a little bit of help, damnit," Rousey said with a laugh that seemed half-joking, half-serious. "I had to do so much to get to this, I'm not going to complain about it."

Rousey faces Sara McManna at UFC 170.
