UFC: Rousey doesn’t mince words before Melbourne title fight

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Ronda Rousey had some fighting words for Holly Holm less than two months before their UFC bantamweight title fight in Melbourne on Nov. 15.

At a hype-filled promotional event filled with more MMA fans than media, Rousey, when asked if she had seen much of Australia’s second-largest city, replied: “I wish I had a chance do some more touristy things, after I beat Holly I will have some time.”

Rousey (12-0) will go after her seventh title defense against Holm (9-0), the boxing champion from New Mexico, in the headlining bout at Etihad Stadium.

Rousey has become one of the most prominent U.S. female athletes while winning her last three bouts in a combined 64 seconds. She stopped Bethe Correia in 34 seconds on Aug. 1.
