Video: Ronda Rousey UFC 190 media scrum from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Before Ronda Rousey steps into the Octagon to headline this weekend's (Sat., Aug. 1, 2015) UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) event opposite undefeated division No. 1 contender Bethe Correia in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, "Rowdy" held court with her very own media scrum.

And MMA Fighting was there to catch it.

Among the topics discussed were comparisons to Mike Tyson (more on that here), her future fighting plans post-UFC 190, and why Bethe Correia made their championship fight so personal.

The Olympian also revealed why she isn't buying Correia's attempts at a "phony" apology following her controversial comments about Rousey committing suicide, and also explained why "The Pitbull" simply isn't meant to be champion.

Also, Ronda says that once she defeats Correia in front of her own people, she plans on leaving the belt in Brazil as a gift to the country.
