Ronda Rousey recently spoke about training with the Diaz Brothers, here are the highlights…
On The Diaz's Training Schedule:"I like their schedule. When I'm home, I have, like, three training sessions where I've got to meet this person at 5 a.m., and this person at 10 and have to be at this place at 8 p.m. By (training during the) day, they mean after 2 (p.m.)."
On Changing Up Her Training: "In the interest of avoiding stagnating, you have to change your environment whenever you can."
On The Running & Swimming: "Nick made me go for my first run in years," she laughed. "I don't run, but we ran miles, a bunch of us. I'm not a triathlete, dude. I get bored. I used to be a swimmer before judo, and it's like a long stamina thing," she said. "It doesn't keep me mentally engaged. [I] have to get something where it's like MMA, where it takes 100 percent of your attention all the time. It's more my sport."
On Fighting Sarah Kaufman: "She's obviously a very good striker and she throws very straight punches," Rousey said of her next opponent. "So what I would mostly be looking out for is her trying to keep distance from me and keep it open to the standup game, which worked very well in her fight against Miesha. She is obviously able to handle grapplers very well, but then again, she's never dealt with anybody like me, so we'll see how it goes."
