Ronda Rousey takes on Holly Holm tonight in the main event of UFC 193, which hopefully lasts at least a little bit longer than Rousey’s last fight. That bout, against Beth Correia, ended in a knockout after just 34 seconds.
As usual, the UFC bantamweight champion will stride to the octagon to the fittingly rowdy sounds of her walkout song, Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” “The song was perfect,” Rousey has said. “If you’re constantly stressing over trying to get everyone to like you, you’re giving them the power to control your well-being. For me it’s better to embrace the role of the heel and chase after being disliked. It’s an element of control and leaves room for error.”
That attitude is just one of the things about Rousey that video remix wizard DJ Steve Porter finds so appealing. “I’ve always been a fan,” he says, “but I got to know Ronda Rousey’s career a lot more while I was producing this remix,” which reinvents Rousey’s signature song. “She’s such a badass!” Porter enthuses. “I hope this spot is epic for her and her fans.”
