Competition has been scarce for the undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion during her tenure as a professional fighter. So much so that the topic of Rousey fighting a man has been talked about at length — Rousey herself even stated that she could beat “100 percent” of the men’s UFC bantamweights if the opportunity presented itself.
In a recent interview with Yahoo News and Finance anchor Bianna Golodryga, the 28-year-old finally put to rest any talk about her ever fighting a man.

“I just don’t think there should ever be a situation where there is an arena full of people gathered around cheering about a man hitting a woman,” Rousey said. “I really don’t see how that would be right. I really don’t see how that would help the sport at all. It would do nothing but hurt it.”
She continued, “Because it’s real. It’s a real fight. It’s not like it’s a movie or a part of a storyline. It’s an actual man hitting a woman and I don’t think that’s ever acceptable.”
