LOS ANGELES - Ronda Rousey seems to be getting a little sick of being asked about Cris "Cyborg" Justino.

At a Friday media lunch to promote her upcoming UFC 175 bantamweight title defense against Alexis Davis, Rousey was asked about the former Strikeforce and current Invicta featherweight champion and whether she ultimately wants a fight with her foe.

Rousey sounded agitated, raising her voice in a way she rarely does in public.

"I wanted to fight her, but the thing is, she's the one that ran away," Rousey said. "They announced out of competition drug testing in the UFC and within 24 hours she asked for her release."

Rousey was just getting started.

"Then she started saying that ‘Oh I won't be able to make 135, because then it will be much harder for me to have kids,'" she continued. "Then I was I like ‘you didn't give a flying f--- about how having steroids would have affected her kids, let's put an over/under on your miscarriages now just based on that."

In the end, Rousey doesn't believe that Justino wants to fight her.

"I would never lose sleep at night over Cris Cyborg in any situation," Rousey said. "If she wants to come and get her ass beat, she knows where I'm at. She knows where I'm at. But she's not making any effort to get there."
