Holm is not known for her pre-fight antics but after what had just transpired, Rousey feels that her opponent is just show “fake” respect.

“She’s the one that touched me and I told her that fake, sweet act, I can see right through it. I really do. It was all fake. All until now. All that respect, all that everything, all being sweet. I see right now that it’s fake and you’re gonna get it on Sunday,” Rousey said.

“You’re not the first person that thought that you had the perfect plan to beat me. It’s not the first time that your camp thought they had the perfect plan to beat me. I’m gonna show you on Sunday why I’m the champ.”
