    “There’s not a day that goes by people aren’t telling me to fight,” Rousey said on her YouTube channel. “I have to try and think of it as, would I rather be the greatest of all time, or have everybody think I’m the greatest of all time?

    [​IMG]

    It used to be so important to me to have both. But now it’s got to the point where I don’t want to sacrifice myself and my family to prove that anymore to a bunch of people that don’t give a sh*t about me.

    “I know, and the people who love me know. It’s no longer a priority in my life. All the people that tell you, ‘Come on, fight again, do this again,’ they would never do that for me.


    “It’s hard when everyone around you, the value they have for you is how you fight, and how they see you is how you fight, and the only thing they think you have to offer is how you fight.

    [​IMG]

    It was actually my husband that taught me I’m so much more than just a fighter. I don’t have to fight myself into the ground to prove that I’m the greatest of all time when I already know that I am.

    “That’s something I really had to deal with stepping away from the UFC was finding my identity without it, because I got so lost in it. It’s tough, because you’re with these people and you’re like, ‘OMG, I got to live this journey with you -- this is amazing.’ And then you see some of these Bellator fights and you’re like, ‘OMG, this person’s still going?’ I can’t watch it. It makes me sad.”

    Ronda comes back , gets a fight against Nunes, gets knocked out in the first round and she disappears again.
    End of the story.

    I commend her for finding a life after fighting.

    To be fair it's mainly people who want to see her get KTFO again.

    Come back any time Ronda.

    She still thinks she is the greatest of all time, even after she got her clock cleared multiple times. Talk about buying your own hype.

    She will never come back. She’s somebody that cannot handle failure. Her reality was shattered that night against Holm and she never recovered mentally.

    But aside from that, she can make more money doing pretend fights in WWE and her name has plenty of value for other ventures. No need to get your face pushed in a few more times when it’s clear she’s behind the best women out there now.

    Yup. She had her success and when she wasn’t at the level that met her expectations she hung it up. There was no years of punishment, or great descent of 6x losses to nobodies. She lost her title. Lost to the GOAT female fighter and hung it up. It wasn’t a fluke, she wasn’t the best anymore. She’s at peace with it and has moved on. Gotta hespect that

    I do find a bit depressing that she apparently sees herself in the same light as washed up legends. I bet she'd at least be top 5.

    She's lived an awesome life. Done some great things for herself. Made tons of money. Found another great paying career. So I can admire her accomplishments.

    I know nobody is perfect and we are all humans here but as a person she really does suck tho. Extremely selfish and self centered.

    She lost twice in a row and quit. And she thinks she’s the goat. Right.

    If part of being great is the act of falling and getting back up. Well... she fell and stayed down.

    I feel the same, I consider her an incredible wmma fighter but time and again she is really a privileged [B word here]

    she and her mom can’t just retire but even in their retirement reasoning and speeches they try to put other humans down

    The armbar nation has documented all those who had a cross word to say about the once ever.
    You will be assimilated.
