For girls it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight actually. Not with like everybody, I don't put out like a Craigslist ads or anything, but if I got a steady I'm going to be like 'yo, fight time's coming up.'
The 25-year-old added that there is at least one guideline she follows in relation to sex before a fight: “You can’t (expletive) somebody and go fight that day.”
"Rowdy" was the Strikeforce bantamweight champion before getting an offer from the UFC. The signing is perfect timing for the former Olympic bronze medalist, since Strikeforce will fold after their January event.
Rousey is a perfect 6-0 as a professional mixed martial artist, finishing all of her opponents inside the first round with an armbar.
Rumored opponents for Rousey's first scrap inside the Octagon include Miesha Tate, who says she has also been signed by the UFC, and fellow former Olympian Sara McMann.
Tate lost the Strikeforce bantamweight title to Rousey in March, scoring some offense in the early moments of the fight but eventually succumbing to an armbar like everyone else.
Both Rousey and White have expressed interest in a superfight with former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos, but that bout now seems unlikely given that Santos' doctors have advised her not to drop down to 135 pounds.
Any readers plan on trying to wine and dine Rousey given her unorthodox views on getting down and dirty before a fight?
