You’d better have your phrasing and punctuation down pat before going toe-to-toe with UFC alum and new WWE Superstar Ronda Rousey.
On Tuesday, ESPN’s Mike Golic found that out the awkward way while talking to her for “Golic and Wingo.”
Watch the very uncomfortable portion of their via-satellite conversation from this morning:
Well this is painfully awkward. Ronda Rousey misunderstands question, gets annoyed. pic.twitter.com/Pt7XwVRazh

Sure, Golic stumbled over his words a bit — but he was trying to ask the judo champ if the door remains open for her to go back to mixed-martial arts competition, in time. He glazed over that comma a bit and maybe didn’t nail the order of the words. But it was live TV, after all.
Either way, it stands to reason that the former “Mike & Mike” co-host was not asking Rousey if she possesses the ability of time-travel.
“There’s a possibility I could go back in time?” she asked. “That’s your question to me?”
“Go back, in time, and fight — go back in the octagon,” Golic tried again.
“I do not have the ability to go back in time, no,” Rousey maintained.
