Northcutt recently appeared on MMA Junkie radio and talked about his own buzz, how some of the other champions carry themselves, and how would carry himself differently than some:</p>
How (Weidman) carries himself, he’s just awesome,” the up-and-comer UFC lightweight told MMAjunkie Radio.
But there are others whom Northcutt looks at with admiration.
“Besides Chris, I guess for the girls, everything Ronda Rousey’s done is amazing,” he said.
It’s no wonder Rousey factors into the conversation, mainly because like Northcutt, it’s hard to avoid her these days. The UFC women’s bantamweight champ not only rules over her division, but is the pound-for-pound champ in press coverage. Every step of her career is documented, from a spot on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” to her latest relationship gossip.
Rousey, of course, carved out the role for herself over the past two years with dominant performances, but also with a taste and talent for controversy. She isn’t afraid to play the role of provocateur outside the cage. And that’s perhaps where Northcutt said he and “Rowdy” differ.
While Northcutt didn’t point to anything in particular about Rousey’s persona, he made it clear they don’t necessarily have the same PR strategy.
“I know the way she carries herself is slightly different than the way I would carry myself, but she’s incredible in everything she’s accomplished,” he said. “It’s amazing for a girl, and she’s done some awesome things.”
