The former UFC bantamweight champion explains her views in an exclusive clip from the upcoming documentary The Hurt Business: A Deeper Look at MMA.

Rousey defends MMA against negative preconceptions, stating that fighting within the world of mixed martial arts “really is the most responsible outlet for (aggression).”
