Ronda Rousey ‘Why We Fight’ video: ‘It’s like eating and sleeping’

Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey calls fighting “an innately human thing, like eating and sleeping,” which I guess makes sense, since you can eat a knee to the face and go to sleep.

The question of Why We Fight is the driving force behind her new eight-part web series starring Golden Gloves champion Zac “Kid Yakima” Wohlman, who travels the world trying to solve the motivational riddle of unarmed combat.

“There is no one answer to why we fight,” Rousey — who will executive produce Verizon’s Go90 series — told “My motivations are very different than anyone else’s and I think that’s why this series is so fascinating.”

One question mixed martial arts (MMA) fans are still asking is why Rousey doesn’t fight following consecutive losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes. While “Rowdy” has yet to officially retire, she’s expected to make her pro wrestling return at some point in 2018.

Until then, this is the closest we’ll get to seeing her involved with fighting.
