Rousey wrote in the book:
He wouldn’t move. I punched him in the face with a straight right, then a left hook. He staggered back and fell against the door. I slapped him with my right hand. He still wouldn’t move. Then I grabbed him by the neck of his hoodie, kneed him in the face, and tossed him aside on the kitchen floor.
Rousey then addressed the incident at UFC 193 media day on Thursday in Melbourne, Australia stating:
If someone is blocking you into an apartment and not letting you leave, you’re entitled to defend yourself and find a way out. If you’re trying to grab your car and leave and they’re grabbing your steering wheel and saying that you can’t leave, that’s technically you being kidnapped and you can defend yourself in any ways necessary.
