Ronda Rousey on MMA Career: ‘I Felt Obligated to Do More Than What I Actually Wanted to Do’

It’s been a rough week for Ronda Rousey on the ESPN circuit, as awkward interactions with network personalities Mike Golic and Max Kellerman were used to highlight her reluctance to talk about the end of her UFC career. However, the former bantamweight queen offered some candid thoughts on why she doesn’t want to talk about the past in an interview with on Wednesday. Rousey explained that, if she doesn’t find the subject matter enjoyable, she doesn’t feel obligated to discuss it. That includes her MMA career. "I'm only here to enjoy myself. That's the only thing that's never been a priority in my life," Rousey said "In judo and MMA, there were times when the process was fun and the results were fun. And there's a time when things run their course. You fall in love, you fall out of love and you find a new love. "There was a while when I was just looking for an honorable way out [of the UFC]. I felt satisfied that I'd proven everything I need to prove, but I didn't feel anybody else felt that way, and I wasn't sure if the women's division could survive without me,” she continued.

Fabio Maldonado-Nikita Krylov Title Bout Tops Fight Nights Global 87 Lineup in Brazil

There will be a number of familiar faces on the card when Russian promotion Fight Nights Global travels to Brazil for the first time. The organization announced Wednesday that Fight Nights Global 87 will be headlined by a light heavyweight title bout between reigning champion Fabio Maldonado and Nikita Krylov . The card will take place in Sao Paulo on May 5 and will also see Diego Brando lock horns with Felipe Froes in the featherweight co-main event, while Elias Silverio will meet Michael Graves in another featured bout. The 38-year-old Maldonado enters the matchup on a two-fight winning streak. He captured 205-pound gold with a third-round submission of Kurban Omarov at Fight Nights Global 73 on Sept. 4. The former professional boxer went 5-6 during a stint in the UFC from 2010 to 2015. Since exiting the UFC, Krylov has posted a 3-0 mark, with all of those victories ending inside of two rounds. Most recently, the 26-year-old Ukraine native knocked out former Bellator MMA champion Emanuel Newton with a knee in 43 seconds at Fight Nights Global 77 on Oct.

Dustin Poirier Not Sure What to Expect from Recently Defeated Justin Gaethje

Dustin Poirier has been on a tear since moving up to the lightweight division. Some professional fighters put themselves through hell during their weight cut, so that come fight night they aren’t at a disadvantage from a size perspective. Since USADA banned the use of IV for rehydration in 2015, more fighters have decided to move up a weight division where they have more energy, durability and power. “The Diamond” was fighting at featherweight and ran into Conor McGregor back in 2014. That night, Poirier was decimated by the Irishman and decided that a move up to lightweight was best as the weight cut was taking its toll. At 155 pounds, he’s lost one bout in eight fights, with notable wins over Anthony Pettis , Jim Miller and Yancy Medeiros . His only loss was to Michael Johnson back in 2016. Poirier, who is the No. 5-ranked lightweight, will take on the No. 6 lightweight Justin Gaethje . The fight takes place on April 14 at UFC Fon Fox 29 inside the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. This will be the first fight in 2018 for both men.

Jimmie Rivera: Marlon Moraes is Going to Get Punished for Manager’s Trash Talk

An interesting bantamweight fight will take place as part of the main event of UFC Fight Night 131 on June 1 at the Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, New York, between Jimmie Rivera and Marlon Moraes . Rivera (21-1) was scheduled to meet Dominick Cruz on Dec. 30, at UFC 219, although Cruz had to withdraw due to injury and was replaced by John Lineker . Lineker then withdrew from the fight due to a tooth infection, which is when the UFC held talks to bring in Moraes. The fight never came to fruition and Rivera ended up not competing at the event. Moraes is represented by controversial manager Ali Abdelaziz. Both Rivera and Abdelaziz have exchanged pleasantries over Twitter recently. Rivera made an appearance on MMA Junkie Radio to explain the friction between himself and Abdelaziz. “It’s his manager who I [expletive] hate. His manager’s a douchebag, called my wife a [expletive] when we were in Las Vegas. I think a lot of the things he says and does are from his manager. I have a lot of grudge against his manager, and his manager represents Marlon, and I’m going to take it out on Marlon.

The Hit List: Olympic Medalists Who Have Competed in MMA

Mixed martial arts has long been a popular avenue for Olympic medalist to continue their competitive careers, with wrestlers, boxers and judo players all making the transition over the last 25 years. Ronda Rousey serves as one of the best-known examples, as she captured bronze in judo at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing before turning her attention to MMA. She won her first 12 fights, all of them finishes, and laid claim to titles in Strikeforce and the Ultimate Fighting Championship . In the process, Rousey became one of the sport’s most bankable stars and a trailblazer for women in what had once been a male-dominated pursuit. Though she currently calls World Wrestling Entertainment home, Rousey belongs to a long list of Olympic medalists who have crossed over to MMA: Ronda Rousey MMA Record: 12-2 Olympic Sport: Judo Olympic Year(s): 2008 Medal(s): Bronze *** Kevin Jackson MMA Record: 4-2 Olympic Sport: Freestyle Wrestling Olympic Year(s): 1992 Medal(s): Gold *** Hen

Champ Ryan Bader reveals planned weight for Bellator heavyweight tourney

“He’s probably the smallest guy I’ve ever fought, let alone in a heavyweight tournament,” Bader said. “He’s the smallest guy I’ve ever fought, ever. Weight’s not a big deal there, but moving on to the next round with Mitrione, he’s a big dude. But at the same time you want to have your cardio up. You want to be quick and agile. So it’s a fine line there.”

Twitter Mailbag: Is the UFC 223 hype train finally pulling into the station, stupid guy?

First of all, a UFC in which all fights are signed and agreed to 16 weeks out would look very different than the UFC we currently have. The ability to find short-notice replacements to keep fight cards together is something UFC matchmakers rely on. You take that away, the end result is going to be more fights being scratched, which means more fighters pumping time and money into a training camp without a payday at the end.
