Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and present WWE Superstar “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey recently took part in a Q&A session hosted by film director Peter Berg at the Wild Card West boxing gym.
During the Q&A, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey finally breaks her silence and opens up about her two high-profile losses inside the Octagon against Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes before joining the WWE.
This is what Ronda Rousey said:
“I did a whole lot of crying, isolating myself, (husband Travis Browne) held me and let me cry and it lasted two years.” “I couldn’t have done it alone. There’s a lot of things you have to remember. Every missed opportunity is a blessing in disguise. I had to learn from experience. From the worst things, the best things have come as a result. Time is a great teacher. It’s that belief that time passes, even bad times.”
Ronda Rousey continued by saying that because of the world we live in nowadays and seeing how different social media is contributed to her wanting to hold in her feelings after those two big losses, as seen below:
“We live in an age of trial by Twitter.” “What is really gained by stating opinion on anything? It whittles people down. It gets cut and pasted 10 times and it’s in (a) headline. (Famous people) keep more and more of it to themselves. Why should I talk? I believe hearing me speak is a privilege and it’s a privilege that’s been abused, so why not revoke it from everyone? I don’t believe public criticism beating you down is the right thing to do anymore.”
