The pros do their best to prepare for anything and everything in the cage, but UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey says women are harder to plan for.
"A lot of these girls, since they're not very structured, they'll do reactions that don't make sense," said Rousey. "Sometimes it makes it a lot more difficult. A lot of these women fighters are a lot more dangerous than the guys. They're less structured because they're newer in the sport. They throw things out of nowhere."
Rousey basically describes her fights as a decision tree, reacting to reactions correctly until she wins.
"It's hard to describe the way I'm thinking," said Rousey. "I have this action and so many reactions that can come from that. They pick one and I have so many answers. I have an answer to this one and there's so many reactions to that answer. I know the reactions that make sense and I'm prepared for the ones that don't."
