When you’re a woman and an MMA champion like Ronda Rousey (11-0) you’ll get asked a ton of questions. When you’re undfeated and have finished all of your fights without facing any hard adversity you’ll get more questions on the limits to your abilities and exactly who you can defeat.

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey recently did a fan Q&A for the Wall Street Journal, and was asked in a dream world, what male UFC fighter she would want to fight.

“Dream world like skills-wise or annoying me-wise?” asked Rousey as transcribed by David St. Martin forMMAFighting.com.

“Does size count? Could we just go from anybody’s skills? Like dream match. Skills-wise, I would love to see where I would go with Jon Jones because he’s the one most able to improvise within a match, which is something I really pride myself on. I think we’d do some crazy ninja stuff.

“And then Bryan Caraway’s really annoying. It would be fun to beat him up, but plenty of other people have gotten that pleasure before me, apparently.”

Rousey was also asked if her appearance at WrestleMania 31 was really her last, as UFC president Dana White has insisted.

“Look, the thing is, would you really want to know?” asked Rousey. “Here’s the thing. With the last WrestleMania, what was the coolest part? It’s the surprise. So do you really want to know? Maybe this is all part of some plot, to put Dana out there and be like, ‘Nope, no way it’ll ever happen.’ Then make everyone forget about it so later I can just pop up like, ‘What? Dana said no.’

“That’s the cool thing about WWE. You don’t know which factors are being put out there because they’re real and which ones are being put out there to put you guys off what’s really going to happen.

Ronda went further with the element of surprise and how crucial it is in the wrestling industry:

“As an avid wrestling fan, myself, I would rather not know. If you knew that Seth Rollins was going to turn on The Shield would you have wanted to know? No. It would have ruined that moment. As a fan and respecting your fandom, I can’t tell you anything.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
