“I planned to, instead of trying to push the clinch, to overwhelm her with strikes so she would want to clinch first, and that’s exactly what happened,” Rousey explained after the fight.
“That’s exactly how we planned it out – to overwhelm her so she went for a clinch, and it was up to me whether to triangle for a takedown or keep going, so I guess she can’t really say anything about my hands anymore, huh,” she added.
