But while Rousey was speaking with the media in anticipation of her title defense, she was also asked about another huge upcoming bout in combat sports. That fight is Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao on May 2 in Las Vegas.
Ronda Rousey was asked about the fight, and she jokingly responded that she will need to secure the win in order to be able to afford tickets to the big event.
“I really want to go so bad,” Rousey told TMZ, via USA Today Sports. “I gotta go beat Cat Zingano so I can make a couple million dollars and afford that ticket.”
Because Ronda Rousey is, well, the woman that she is, we doubt she would have much of a problem getting tickets. But if she did need to purchase the tickets, they won’t come cheap.
However, ignoring the issue about getting tickets for a minute, who would Rousey be cheering for front and center at the MGM Grand Garden Arena?
None other than the Filipino star.
“Pacquiao has been very, very nice to me so I’m going to root for him,” she added.
