UFC champ Ronda Rousey curses on ESPN, then gives most endearing apology ever

- December 26th, 2013

At least with UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey you’re getting someone real.

She’s not polished. Or politically correct.

She’s not coached to the extent her interviews are boring and scripted, either.

Yep, the undefeated UFC darling is a straight shooter.

For instance, take Thursday’s live interview with SportsCenter, when Rousey had a slip of the tongue while promoting her upcoming fight Saturday night in Vegas.

Now then, it’s not so much people should take offence to ESPN letting a naughty word slip through.

We’re well beyond that in terms of TV land these days.

Rather, it’s Rousey’s apology that’s pretty entertaining – and endearing.

“I’m on fight week,” the 26-year-old tells the ESPN anchor. “I’m extra violent. You’ve got to let me know when to be cuddily.”

Like she was for ESPN last year.
