In response to Edmond Tarverdyan’s comments that he’d like Rousey to return for one more fight against Cyborg, the UFC women’s featherweight champion today called Rousey’s longtime coach “a joke” and explained why she’d only take the bout if it was scripted.


When I wanted to fight her it was because she was at the top of her game and she had all of the confidence in the world. She had not been KO’d twice in a row and some people were actually saying she could beat Floyd Mayweather in a fight.

I wanted the challenge so bad I almost killed myself trying to make the lowest weight possible just to give this fight to the fans, and she made every excuse for it not to happen.

Both of us are now at different chapters in our careers and for me that chapter is finished.

If Ronda is wanting to make the fight for the fans, I would still be willing to give them it, but I think it would be better to take place inside the WWE ring.
