[VIDEO] Up close and personal with Ronda Rousey

Cagewriter

UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is becoming one of the most recognizable MMA fighters in the world but few know much about what makes her tick. In episode two of UFC 175 Embedded, the "Rowdy" one opens up in one of her most intimate and heart-felt on-camera interviews ever, while preparing to defend her belt against Alexis Davis this Saturday at UFC 175 in Las Vegas.

Watch the above video to hear the two-time Olympian discuss the challenges of past fight camps, explain why she has been able to focus more for this fight than she has for one in years, what she means by "routine of domination," and why it doesn't matter whether or not people see the "real" her and all the work she puts in. For all the volumne and bluster of fight weeks, these moments are quiet, seemingly honest and personal, and not to be missed.
