Ronda Rousey talks acting money and Gina Carano

On her acting career:

“I want to be the highest-grossing actor in the world someday,” she told ESPN The Magazine recently.

“I didn’t grow up wanting to be an action star,” Rousey said. “I just didn’t think it was in the cards. Now that it’s a possibility, I’m like, ‘Screw it, I don’t give a s***, if The Rock can become the world’s highest-grossing actor, I can have that same goal.'”

On Gina Carano:

“My coach said from the start that Gina is the worst style matchup for me,” Rousey said. “I’m not just saying that. I don’t have to worry about fighters outmuscling or overwhelming me or catching me on the mat. The only thing I have to worry about is the one-punch knockout. And out of all of the women in MMA, Gina has the best feel for distance and timing. That’s not something you lose because you made a couple of movies. You’ll always have that. And she was the first girl I ever saw that had a one-punch standing knockout.”

“Even if you think she took too much time off and it’d be a quick fight, to be honest, that fight would be too hot not to watch,” Rousey said. “It doesn’t really matter if it’ll be competitive or not. And if you do watch it, you’re going to be surprised: It’ll be one of the greatest fights to ever happen in the history of women’s MMA.”
