Here's the surprising answer Ronda Rousey gave when asked who she's rooting for between Holm-Tate

Here's who Ronda Rousey is rooting for.

UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm will defend her belt for the first time since shocking Ronda Rousey with a knockout victory on Saturday night at UFC 196.

Before the champ steps into the Octagon, TMZ caught up with Rousey and here's what she said when it comes to who she's rooting for this weekend, per

"I need [Holm] to win," said Rousey. "I want to be the one to beat her. I don't want anyone else to take the honor of beating her besides myself."

It looks like Rousey won't be ready for UFC 200, meaning if Holm doesn't lose to Tate, she might have at least one other title defense before the highly-anticipated rematch.
