    I have this to say about my daughter, Ronda

    Like every mother and daughter on the face of the earth, Ronda and I don't always see eye to eye. However, there is one situation where I am pretty certain.

    All of those who have criticized Ronda for taking a loss so to heart, for not just 'shrugging it off' don't understand that what made Ronda so successful is that she cares DEEPLY about winning to an extent that I don't believe the average person can wrap his/her head around.

    Caring deeply about something and working your hardest to achieve it doesn't mean you make the right decisions 100% of the time. Wouldn't it be a nicer world if it did?

    Those of you who want to criticize Ronda, I just want to point out a few things. First of all, I know her better than you and she is a smart, kind, talented, generous, hard-working person.

    Second, I'd like to list some of her accomplishments, and note that she isn't yet 30 years old.

    • Junior World Judo Champion
    • Panamerican Games Judo Gold Medalist
    • First American woman in a decade to win a world cup in judo (and then she went on to win several more)
    • U.S. Open Gold Medalist
    • World Judo Championships Silver Medalist
    • Olympic Bronze Medalist
    • U.S. Senior National Champion
    • First UFC World Champion
    • First woman to make a million dollars in martial arts
    • Co-authored sports book of the year - My Fight/ Your Fight
    • Acted in three movies

    That's just a partial list, but let me suggest that someone who has been world level athlete in two sports, written a best seller, acted in movies and made millions of dollars, all before the age of 30 has a pretty darn good track record. On top of that, Ronda has been part of the USADA drug testing since she was 16 years old, never failed a drug test, always paid her taxes, never been arrested, never been to rehab, has zero divorces, zero DUIs and zero children. While you might think that is to be expected, look how many celebrities (heck, look how many of your neighbors) can say that.

    I am very proud of my daughter.

    As my other wonderful daughter, Maria, told her ,

    "We love you just as much 10 minutes after every fight as we did in the 10 minutes before."

    Edit: Since so many people asked me "What do you mean zero children? Children aren't a bad thing." I agree. I have four. I meant that she did not have children before she was able and willing to raise them.

    She's making excuses for her daughter's bad behavior. In a way she's also making excuses for her bad child-rearing techniques.

    Speaks volumes when your mother has to defend your personality and failures.

    In all seriousness, do you think Ronda fights again, changes camps?

    I believe she's done but if she wants to fight again she has to change camp - no point in coming back if she doesn't.

    How the mighty have fallen. It makes all those years of that Ronda propaganda well worth it.

    WHERE YOU AT DANA!?

    she strikes me as a great example of one of these parents who lives out ambitions through their child. is this a uniquely american disease?

    Don't care, she's still a terrible human being. Achievements don't make you decent
