    Here it is. She opened up about the sadness of defeat and isn't trying to play hard anymore. Ronda is human and not only that, but a woman. A woman who wants to be a mother, make people proud, have people respect and appreciate her and is emotional like any female is. This interview changed my perception on Ronda and humanized more than I thought was ever possible. I like her moving forward and think she'll win the rematch with Holly when and if it happens.

    It shows how mentally weak she is. she literally has 0 chance in a rematch. Holly broke her completely.

    in the interview she LITERALLY says that she still thinks she's undefeated. she's so fucking delusional. she deserves all of this

    It highlights the immense disparity between female and male fighters/athletes in all honesty - the fact she admitted that post-fight she contemplated suicide is far from a positive thing imo - it communicates the fragility of her state of mind, if she gets starched again (which I am confident will happen) I wouldn't be surprised if she were to retire completely.

    Ronda looks weak and this repels real MMA fans from ever liking her. Everytime she is exposed on TV it increases her actress/TV show host chances and decreases the likelihood of her stepping in the octagon again, especially if it's to fight Holly Holm.

    I didn't like the part about saying no other person had 3 title fights in 9 months or less. Jones did in 2011, GSP December 2007-August 2008 come to mind without even thinking twice and Conor is about to in a few weeks

    She didn't even have 1 minute of action before the Holm fight, Holm had 3 fights in the same amount of time where the first 2 went the distance, Ronda being a DNB.

    Bad people get what's coming to them in life.

    Only people with a warped perspective of reality would think it's weird for people to criticize her.

    Kinda split. The mainstream will likely eat it up. The MMA community will cringe at this kind of talk from a fighter, let alone a former champion. Also, there is the likelihood that the mainstream sees right through her. Either she's changed and transcended the loss or she hasn't. The interview lends credence to both sides of that argument. As someone else pointed out in another thread, she alludes to having gone through emotional growth through the loss, but at the same time she's as arrogant as ever. I'm not 100% sure she can get her story over in the judgmental eyes of millions. Especially when she isn't even trying to woo them with her looks anymore, which is what they really respond to.

    It will help her with the retard fans that eat up that BS. She's a sore loser. She doesn't shake hands before or after fights, talks shit before and after fights, and doesn't know how to give credit where it's due. Most hardcore fans know what type of person she really is. Too many women think she's bad ass because she shits on men.

    Holly Holm would have no problem defending her belt 3-4 times a year, but of course Dana/UFC wont let her defend her title... She is lucky they even let her fight Tate tbh...

    I only watched a few minutes of the interview/video, and it almost seems like Ronda is a victim of a crime or some shit...wierd like wtf man...She got her ass beat, and lost her title, that simple...Also, Ronda didnt give any props or credit to Holly of course either...

    Wow, pure hater right here.

    I'm not a fan of Ronda, in that I don't admire her skill level. However, you are simply taking what you want from the interview and spinning it to bash her. She says she is undefeated, in that everyone has losses, but only you choose to stay defeated or not (meaning coming back, or quitting).

    Do you work for Fox News?

    Just view it as damage control honestly and mostly I got out of it how weak mentally she is.
