"It's what I want," Ronda Rousey said of a rematch with Holly Holm at UFC 200.

No longer shying away from the media, Ronda Rousey has declared that she wants a rematch with Holly Holm at UFC 200.

The 28-year-old suffered a devastating knockout to Holm at UFC 193 in November. TMZ greeted Rousey on her way home after the loss, but the Olympic bronze medalist wasn't willing to cooperate. But, one month on and "Rowdy" seemed happy enough to answer some questions.

The former bantamweight champion spoke to TMZ on Friday.

"It's what I want," Rousey said of a bout with Holm at UFC 200. "It's up to the UFC, and it's up to her camp. So, we'll see what happens."

Holly Holm's camp stated their interest in a title defense against Miesha Tate, but UFC president Dana White shut down those hopes in an interview with the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday.

Rousey, who was on her way to the Marine Corps Ball with Jarrod Haschert, says she'd still probably be "crying and eating ice cream" if she didn't attend.

"I promised I'd do it," Rousey said. "It's a honor to be asked. Honestly, I probably would stay on my couch crying and eating ice cream if he didn't ask me. To get outside the house, it's probably a good thing."
