Baszler, 32, thinks her name has probably already been thrown around by the UFC matchmakers that are in charge of determining who Rousey should fight this year, and she's not going to go out of her way to talk up a fight against the popular judoka.
Baszler's approach is the exact opposite of the one taken by Liz Carmouche, who urged her fans to use Twitter to campaign for her to get a UFC title shot against Rousey. UFC President Dana White heard Carmouche's fans loud and clear. She was granted a headlining slot against Rousey at UFC 157.
Baszler hopes her Invicta FC 4 performance will speak for itself.
"There's no doubt that if they're talking about women's fights in the UFC in a weight class I've been successful in, I guarantee my name has been thrown around in conference tables somewhere as well as Alexis," Baszler said. "I think this is a huge fight for both of us. That being said, I'm not one of those people, not that don't want to fight in the UFC, but I'm not one of those people that's going to blow up my twitter and start really campaigning for a UFC fight because a fight is a fight. Invicta is doing a good job and I just want to fight the best girls there are. Wherever there's a body to bend in a way that shouldn't be bent, I will be there and attempt to do that."
Baszler expects to let her fists do the talking, and let the chips fall as they may when it comes to a potential fight against Rousey in the UFC.
"The UFC will come knocking as long as I'm doing my job so I feel like as soon as I start thinking about all the implications of this, it takes my mind off the focus," Baszler said. "My job as of right now is to break Alexis Davis. Whether or not the UFC calls after that is their prerogative. If I do my job, everything else will fall into place."
Rousey fights Liz Carmouche on Feb. 23 at UFC 157, and rumor has it that she'll be fighting the winner of the Invicta FC 4 fight between Baszler and Davis.
Baszler fights Davis on Jan. 5 at Invicta FC 4.
