    I think this week we basically got to see why Ronda has all this mental baggage.

    It's basically how her mother treated her as a child. It seems like her mom didn't hug her enough. It seems like she was extremely tough on Ronda, and basically Ronda admitted that she grew up feeling that her mother didn't have a heart, aka her mother didn't express any love.

    She says she understand now why her mother put her through all that hardship and even made her fight injured and all that... but clearly Ronda worships her mom and keeps working for her approval. Even being UFC champ doesn't erase the insecurities inside Ronda because her mother basically tol her she's not going to be good enough for her mother, no matter what.

    Oh so you've seen her on a reality show and diagnosed her mental illness plus the cause. You must be a master psychologist!

    You have to be taller that 6"5 to not be intimidated by Ronda's mom.

    I can see how you got that impression. It's definitely possible. But it's also possible that Ronda's mom gave her plenty of hugs, while also putting Ronda through hell. It's possible to do both, it's possible to be a loving parent and still push your kid hard. Pushing your kid doesn't mean that you have to be cold.

    At the end of the day, Ronda achieved so much and still has a great relationship with her mom. It's hard to criticize her mother, when you look at the result. Does Ronda have insecurities? Sure, who doesn't? I don't think she doubts that her mother loves her, even though she's constantly trying to impress her mother.

    Without children, I also think Ronda needs her mother as motivation. It's easier to say that you're fighting for someone else, than to say that you're fighting for yourself. It feels less selfish, I think. And I'm sure it feels good to say that you're trying to achieve greatness as a way to thank your parents.

    The mom is definitely nuts, but I loved when that little troll, jumped into an arm bar without any hesitation at the age of 70.

    A sports psychologist is different than a "regular" psychologist. A sports psychologist is only there to help you develop the mental edge that you need to perform at your best in competition w/out "choking". The mental attitude you need to be a truly elite professional athlete would often make you a psycho in real life... albeit some athletes are able to turn it on/off... while others are a bit crazy outside of competition.
