Watch Ronda Rousey use her trademark move (Armbar) on host Jimmy Fallon, amongst this great, funny interview.
Jimmy Fallon introduced UFC women’s bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey.
She is currently undefeated. Jimmy Fallon said “You look gorgeous!” and told her that she had a “great name for a fighter.”
She told him “Once I started taking judo lessons, it let a lot of my aggression out.” Her mom had been a judo champion, Ronda told Fallon.
“Where did you think your judo would take you?” Fallon asked her.
Ronda replied that she won a medal in the Olympics, before she got into mixed martial arts. She said that her mom had called the idea “the stupidest idea you’ve ever had.”
While in the ring, Ronda said that she “was completely emotionless. It’s just observations and decisions.”
“Fighting isn’t a man’s thing, it’s a human’s thing,” Ronda stated. “To say that it’s a man’s thing is anti-feminist.”
“They call you the ‘Arm Collector,’” Fallon said, “because you snap people’s arms.”
Ronda asked him “Give me your arm,” and she demonstrated on him what she does in a fight. His “safe word” was “Rumpelstiltskin,” and he said it pretty quickly, once she demonstrated what she does on his arm.
UFC 190 takes place on August 1st at HSBC Centre, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
