Christy Martin is one of the most accomplished female boxers that the sport has ever seen, but she has now turned her attention towards the world of mixed martial arts and targeted former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.
Martin recently spoke with Fight Hype, where she took several shots at Rousey and the image she has been portraying to the public.
"Ronda Rousey, to me, is the worst public female image that we could ever have out there. Simply because she cannot sit here and have an interview with you without cursing word after word after word. Come on, we’re here to set an example for women, young women, young girls. People in general. Talk like you’re intelligent. When you have to use every other word as ‘F this and F that’, it shows your lack of intelligence, lack of vocabulary." said Martin.
Martin is also under the impression that Rousey will not event show up on December 30 to fight UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes.
"I don't think we'll ever see her December 30th. Unless Dana White has some serious contract on her that she can't do anything else, including movies and commercials and so on. Unless she gets back in the ring, we will never see Ronda Rousey again,” Martin said.
UFC 207 takes place on Friday, December 30 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Amanda Nunes and Ronda Rousey headlining.
