Ronda Rousey: "Mesha Tate Is Fake"

As noted, UFC held press conference for UFC 170 and here is part of the interview with Ronda Rousey:

“I really think that if me and her fought alone in her gym if there weren’t people there watching, she wouldn’t have offered her hand to me,” Rousey said at a Wednesday media luncheon. “Her actions were entirely influenced by being watched. My actions were all despite being watched.”

“It’s not a fakeable moment and it was entirely the right thing to do because I didn’t think about it,” Rousey said. “It was immediate. It was just like, ‘nope.’ Maybe if I took the time to think about it I would have changed my mind, but then it would have been the wrong decision, because it would have meant that my first inclination, I mean, I had that for a reason.”

“I stood my ground in a very difficult situation where I would be extremely criticized for doing so.”
