Reigning UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey isn't satisfied with excelling in just one sport. Yesterday, during the customary pre-fight press conference at her Glendale, CA - based training facility Glendale Fighting Club, she expounded on her career, upcoming title defense, and post- MMA aspirations.  

 

"What I'd really like to do — and I don't know if I'll have the time and I just want to do so many things, but — I want to be remembered as one of the greatest fighters of all time at any sport," Rousey said. 

 

That Includes potentially taking to the ring in professional boxing and jiu-jitsu capacities.

 

"What I would love to do: I got an Olympic medal, I would want to retire from MMA as one of the greatest of all time, I would love to have the chance to be the boxing world champion, and I would love to have the chance to be a jiu-jitsu world champion. I'd love to have the chance to be the Divas world champion and just be the best of everything at one point," Rousey revealed.

 

She'll be defending her title on November 14th against boxer Holly Holm in UFC 195.
