Ronda Rousey: I want to retire undefeated and be known as the greatest fighter who ever lived

"I want fans go ‘Wow, what just happened there? I want to watch it all over again.' I'm gonna be the best that night and every night I walk in there. She'll have to think about me every day. Then I'm going to go think about beating up Miesha again. Then I'll forget about her. Then I'm going to go make a movie - Mile 22 - with Mark Wahlberg. In the grand goal, I'm not the favorite. I want to be one of the most dominant fighters who've ever lived and retire undefeated. It's such a rarity. There's been so many dominant fighters that aspired to that but didn't get there. That's what the final objective is. I'm an underdog in that."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey recognizes her UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) main event against Bethe Correia, which takes place this Saturday night (Aug. 1, 2015) inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as just another leg of her combat sports marathon. To that end, the "Rowdy" champion expects to reach the finish line -- whenever that day comes -- with her perfect record intact and a path of destruction so violent, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans will have no choice but to recognize her as the best ever. Unfortunately, that distinction lives and dies on the goose egg resting comfortably in her loss column. How much longer it stays there remains to be seen but sometimes, all it takes is the right opponent.
