Ronda finally realized she wasn't getting paid to promote, she was getting paid to fight and win and the endless promoting was taking away from her fight preparation. It's no secret she was not prepared in her last fight against Holly and she took it on short notice as a replacement fight in order to help the UFC save a card. She's not the only UFC star to be run into the ground. Conor went through the same thing until he missed a press conference for UFC 200 and was pulled from the card. He went on to say he was done with MMA, before he backtracked. Here was his statement at the time. http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/4/2...ues-statement-after-being-pulled-from-ufc-200 Ronda talked to Conor after this all happened and gave him some advice. http://nesn.com/2016/12/ronda-rousey-offered-conor-mcgregor-advice-after-he-was-pulled-from-ufc-200/ Ronda took her own advice and added a no media clause in her latest fight contract so she could concentrate on her training and the improvements she has to make. Fighters like Conor and Ronda have carried the UFC for years and a lot of people have made money off of them and that includes all these media types that don't know shit about mma and don't want to know. If they feel their preparation for fights is starting to suffer they have earned the right to be a little selfish and forego the endless promoting. Hopefully this ends the talk of why Ronda isn't flying all over the country doing interviews and taking time away from the most important fight of her career. Like Conor, Ronda has a huge fanbase on social media and can reach more people with a 10 second tweet than somebody like Nunes can reach by spending her entire day in an ESPN studio, in what ultimately ends up being a 15 minute spot, answering stupid questions from people that don't know who the fuck she is.
