Strikeforce champion, Ronda Rousey, knocked it out of the park during her visit to TMZ where she appeared as a guest sitting with the rest of the crew dropping one-liners, blending in and making it look like she does this all the time.
Well, actually, she does do this all the time. Ronda prides herself on giving fresh answers to interviewer's questions...and Ronda does a lot of interviews. It looks to me like she practices her interviewing and TV time presence with the same enthusiasm that she practices her MMA moves.
Ronda knows exactly how to pump up the volume on the side of her that she shares with the public.
Ronda was invited back on the show after a recent appearance where during her interview she said that Kim Kardashian should be selling lube instead of shoes. She was upset because her little sister bought shoes that were being promoted by Kim Kardashian.
Ronda's world just keeps getting bigger
TMZ on TV Full Episode: Monday 07/30/12 video link (almost 20 minutes)
Ronda is the Queen of Soundbites
Someone asked Ronda what it feels like to break someone's arm (because she wins her fights by armlock), "It feels like at Thanksgiving, when you're tearing apart a turkey."
"I'm naked on the cover of ESPN Body Issue, so I really can't say anything."
"I want my souvenir condoms! Souvenirs, I swear!...(In the Olympic Village) As more people got done (with their events), it just got more debaucherous."
Watch "All Access: Ronda Rousey"
Ronda is adventurous, comfortable and natural in front of thecamera. She's a risk-taker. Based on how things are going, Ronda is going torocket over the previous face of women's MMA, Gina Carano and her action movieroles.
SHOSports will present an "All Access: Ronda Rousey" edition prior to her first title defense against fierce contender, Sarah Kaufman. Part one premieres on Showtime on Wednesday, August 8. Part two airs August 15.
Strikeforce: Rousey vs Kaufman happens on August 18th on Showtime.
Ronda hasn't stumbled yet--winning all her fights, gracing the covers of magazines and being charming in her interviews. Eventually, everyone hits a bump in the road. I'm curious to see how she will handle it. No surprise to me, if she handles getting knocked down like the champ she is.
