UFC women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey is everywhere at once this week. She is only the second MMA athlete to capture the cover of Sports Illustrated's print magazine and she's got her first book out, My Fight / Your Fight, so it's to be expected that the media blitz is in full swing.

Among the many interviews and special appearances she's been making, a surprising name pops up on the list; Howard Stern. The reason is this; Dana White made it clear that he's not a fan of Stern and has even discouraged the UFC ring card girls from guesting on the show. However, that was six years ago, and let's face it, Ronda Rousey is not about to let Howard Stern get the best of her. It's not in her nature to let anyone do that.

The interview is a lengthy one, and spans two Youtube videos. Here are some Cliff Notes:

-She talks about her childhood and her father's suicide

-Talks about the Olympics and post-Olympics where she worked as a waitress and how guys grabbed her ass and stole her tips

-Her weight issues and how she thought she was ugly

-Calls Miesha a cunt and a bitch and how she could've stopped the 2nd fight earlier but wanted to punish her

-How Caraway has been horrible for Miesha's career and how he pulled her away from TAM and as a result, Miesha's never been the same since

-Says the best thing that ever happened to Miesha was when she beat the crap out of her

-Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, UFC fighter pay and says she's "really taken care of"

-The Bethe Correia fight

-Typical Stern-esque questions


The interview starts at the 16:50 mark of the first video and continues on through the second one.
