UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was in Australia earlier this week to promote her upcoming title defense against former boxing champion Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November.
During her press conference, Rousey was asked about the differences between Holm and her previous opponents.
While giving her honest, unfiltered answer, Rousey had a hilarious slip-up.
The champion made an unintentonal sexual innuendo when referring to Holm’s skillset and laughter followed. Like many of us when we let our inner child take over, Rousey could not get over the comments she made.
“Holly’s not really the kind of person I can come at right away,” Rousey said.
“The other girls that I’ve fought before do not have the kind of footwork and movement that Holly has. They weren’t counter punchers, so I knew that If I came right in their face right away, oh, that sounded terrible (laughs). Oh my God! Not right away, I take my time, okay? You know what I mean, if I came…how do I say this right now? Rephrasing, I can’t really be aggressive right away because Holly’s a counter puncher and she has a reach advantage on me.”
Okay, that was deserving of the laughter.
