In case you missed it earlier today,Women’s Bantamweight Champion appeared with the FOX NFL crew shortly after the Green Bay Packers were humiliated by the Detroit Lions (10 – 40). During the broadcast she talked about losing 17.5 pounds in a 24-hour period to prove a point, about the women’s division, about her title fight with Miesha Tate on December 28th, and about being the first woman of the UFC.
Among her more quotable moments, she said:
Milestones are kind of getting to be a normal thing. … I did it more for the women’s division, I want it to survive me. I want 20 years from now it still to be going and one of the things that’s lacking is that a lot of the other girls aren’t known very well and so I wanted to give the other girls a venue for the audience to get to know them.
Later in the interview, when asked about the upcoming fight and her dramatic finish, she said, rather tongue in cheekily:
Every finish of mine is dramatic. That’s why people like to watch me.
Take away what you will from that quote, but, god, I love the confidence.
