In the first of the three-part "UFC Primetime: Rousey vs. Carmouche" special, Rousey appeared in a tearful segment, where she opened up about her father's passing.
"I guess I got to the point where I was getting fed up with being asked to recount that over and over," said Rousey. "And I really felt like this is the final time that I'm ever going to talk about the way that my father died. And I really felt like, since this was the last time I'm going to say it, I'm going to tell the story in the best way that I could."
"People don't see with those interviews, a lot of times they go on for hours," Rousey said. "You know, it's like an interrogation, they try to wear you down and get you emotional. They're very good at what they do. There's just been a lot of media and it got to the point where there was so many people asking questions like that. They do it in a very calculated way. First they ask you about the good memories, and stuff like that, and it brings you back when you recount the good stuff, and then they immediately jump to the hard question."
For Carmouche, the primetime special helped draw business into her San Diego gym.
"I've gotten a lot of positive feedback," said Carmouche. "I don't think people really had an idea about my life or about Ronda's life, so we kind of gave them a little bit more than they knew before. Now a lot of people are calling me at the gym and looking to come in and start training."
