According to a Dec. 28 YouTube post from MMA H.E.A.T., UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey (8-0) said at the UFC 168 post-fight press conference that shadowboxing at home helped her prepare for her UFC 168 fight against hard-hitting knockout artist Miesha Tate (13-5).
Rousey, 26, explained that she has training balls in almost every room of her house, so she's constantly shadowboxing them to improve her technique even when she's not in the gym.
"I don't have a gym in my house. What? I have little balls I hang around my house, so like when you walk past any room you go into, you have to like shadowbox at them," Rousey said at the 33-minute mark of the UFC 168 post-fight presser. "I have different things. I have a double-end one, so it's like my whole house is kind of gym-ish, but there's no like gym section.
"There's just, if you're walking through the house, you're going to hit your head onto something if you don't weave out of the way, you know what I mean?"
Fellow UFC 168 winner Uriah Hall sat next to Rousey during the post-fight press conference, and he told media members that he saw the star judoka's home setup first-hand.
"I don't really have a gym at my house, but I went to hangout with her one time and I like the concept she had," Hall said of Rousey. "It was just balls and everything everywhere, training balls that are hanging, I meant to say.
"It was an interesting concept because I stayed there and I couldn't get to the kitchen without fighting something."
UFC President Dana White quickly turned the conversation to something else after the fighters' comments drew some juvenile funnies from the crowd on hand.
"This thing is on FOX for crying out loud," White said after UFC 168 winner Travis Browne chimed in on the matter. "Let's just get some other questions going here."
