Plus, Interviews with Miesha Tate and
Sports Psychologist Ken Baum on
A Special Ronda Rousey Edition of ‘INSIDE MMA’
LOS ANGELES – Dec. 4, 2015 – On a special edition of AXS TV’s INSIDE MMA that was dedicated in discussing former UFC champion Ronda Rousey’s future, Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp joined the show to discuss Rousey’s impact on women’s MMA and the latest news from her promotion. During the interview with series hosts Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten, Knapp revealed Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino will defend her belt at 145 pounds in January, instead of fighting at the 140-pound mark Justino was previously working toward.
“Cyborg’s next fight will be at 145 pounds. This will be the first time that she has competed without hydrating herself with an I.V. So she’s made the decision to go ahead and defend her belt.”
Knapp’s full interview is available here:
UFC fighter Miesha Tate, who has twice fought Rousey, also appeared on tonight’s special and shared her desire to fight newly crowned champion Holly Holm before Rousey is scheduled for a rematch.
“I don’t think it makes sense to hold up the entire women’s division for nine months. So I figure if Holly [Holm] and I fought each other, it’s a win-win for the UFC.”

Rounding out the special, sports psychologist Ken Baum, who has worked with a number of fighters such as Mark Munoz and Jake Ellenberger, shared his expertise on what Rousey needs to do to recover mentally from her first loss:
