Ronda Rousey reveals the one fighter who was able to get inside her head ... and the answer may surprise you

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

"You know who was the smartest ever, to really fuck with me in the staredown? Liz Carmouche. I've had girls try to get in my face, I've had girls try to smirk with me, stuff like that. Liz Carmouche just started spitting game right then. I was totally distracted. I don't want her girlfriend to get mad at me or anything. Let's just say it was the most thrown off I've ever been. Liz, I think she started singing her own walkout song and she started to dance and everything and I was like I can't, I have no previous information on the subject, no knowledge of how to react to this. So no, that was the most effective staredown ever."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight queenpin Ronda Rousey is as cool as a cucumber when it comes to facing off against her 135-pound title challengers. Any why not? She's an Olympian with an undefeated record and 10 finishes in 10 wins. But there was one opponent who completely threw her for a loop at the pre-fight staredowns, and that was fellow Strikeforce import Liz Carmouche. Based on what "Rowdy" said above (via MMA Fighting), and taking into account that "Girl-Rilla" is a lesbian, I'm pretty sure the comments that would "make her girlfriend mad" are the sort you would hear just before a prison beatdown. While Carmouche failed to make good on her threat at UFC 157, she did have Rousey in a painful neck crank and nearly upset the apple cart, but alas, it was not meant to be. But at least she has the dubious honor of being the lone fighter to get inside the champ's head.
