ESPN W has a new feature article online featuring several quotes from Ronda Rousey ahead of her redemption fight against Amanda Nunes for the UFC women’s bantamweight championship at UFC 207. Below are the highlights:

What her loss to Holly Holm saved her from:

"That loss saved me from becoming what I hate," she says. "One of those people who live their lives to impress everyone else. Who put up a front for the world to admire. Who make sure every charitable act is posted and shared for their own image gain. Who posture and pose for people they care nothing about except for the opinion they have of them.”

Her knee:

"My ACL is gone. My cartilage is gone," she says. "It's been gone. I don't even know when it left.”

Not being one of the ‘money people:’

"If money is the motivation, then f--- that," she says. "All these Money people... Money [Floyd] Mayweather, Money [Conor] McGregor. I see they're trying to do an angle or whatever. People buy it.

The worship of money in our society is so deep. But just because that's the easiest way to keep people's attention or entertain them doesn't mean that's the right way.”
