Strikeforce women’s champion Ronda Rousey has no problems speaking her mind. In the lead-up to her fight with Miesha Tate earlier this year, “Rowdy” said anything and everything that she wanted.
Next up was Tate’s boyfriend, Bryan Caraway. Most recently, Rousey has called out Kim Kardashian.
However, Rousey hasn’t stopped yet, adding Michael Phelps to her hit list. Rousey is set to defend her title against Sarah Kaufman next month on Showtime.
Rousey was an Olympian with Phelps, and claimed that the swimmer never hung out with his fellow Olympians, deciding to stay by himself during their time in the Olympic village.
“These NBA players are a bigger deal than this guy, and they’re hanging out with us,” said Rousey, in an interview with Yahoo! Sports. “We’re teammates. We’re not a bunch of groupies. Come hang out with us.”
Rousey said that Phelps did much of the same during an appearance for The Oprah Winfrey Show, adding, “Get over yourself. All you do is swim. If someone slapped you every time you jumped in the pool, I might have a little respect, but I was a swimmer before I did (MMA), and you can’t tell me that swimming is OH MY GOD, because it’s not.”
