In an interview following a screening of her new movie, Expendables 3, Ronda Rousey discussed the ability to balance acting with her training to defend the batamweight UFC title.
For most people, balancing two jobs of that magnitude would most certainly result in a lower quality of work for one or both. But not Rousey. When she wasn't on the set shooting for Expendables 3, she spent her time training for her title defense against Alexis Davis, which she ultimately did by crushing Davis in a mere 16 seconds.
“I felt like I could do both to the best of my abilities, and yeah [the filming] cut into my training, but I did both and excelled at both,” said Rousey to For the Win.
In the film, Rousey plays a young recruit who specializes in hand-to-hand combat. Also appearing in the film is fellow UFC great Randy Couture. When asked if she believed she could beat Couture in a match, Rousey held nothing back with her response.
“I feel like I could beat anyone in history. Like, since the beginning of time,” Rousey said.
Attila the Hun, Alexander the Great, and Genghis Khan, you've been challenged.
