Is Rousey the biggest spoiled brat in MMA history?

I'm not one for kicking someone while they're down, and I take no joy in Rousey's loss last night, but her attitude since losing to Holly Holm has been absolutely appalling.

She never fully acknowledged the loss to Holm and admitted that she was the better woman, she blocked out the MMA media for an ENTIRE YEAR and, to top it off last night, refused to really acknowledge Nunes and refused to address all of the loyal supporters and fans that paid good money to fly out and watch her live.

It's 'me me me' with Rousey and she doesn't seem to give a shit about anyone but herself. She was in complete denial after the Holm loss and refused to even acknowledge her own mistakes. I have never seen a champion react the way this spoiled brat has for an entire year. She's a disgraceful champ, imo.

I agree.

I took a lot of pleasure in her defeat against Holm.

I was pleased she lost again last night.

Maybe she's finally started to adhere to that age old piece of advice everyones mother told them.

"If you've got nothing nice to say, say nothing at all"

In terms of Rousey's actual mother, she comes across as a complete control freak and a bit crazy.

She did acknowledge em inside the octagon albeit very briefly. Before she won the belt or soon after I saw the countdown show which delved personally into her life. That's when I realized where her strength and weaknesses were. She's very similar to BJ and Vitor. There's been a few fighters who shunned the media right after a bout. To each their own. But the answer to this is to look deeper into her psych and I'll leave it at that. Wish her well, but WMMA has evolved already and has moved on.

Yes, she is... but honestly rep, i feel like i have already said it enough times Ronda won't ever do anything to change that perception, and now... without fighting, she will quickly fade until the 34 yr old 2nd failed comeback.

I see her as a product of her environment.

Ronda represents the SJW, leftist, with me or against me, anti-intellectual, oversimplify everything to shades of black and white mentality.

Ronda isn't alone. The majority of school teachers and college professors bring young people up to think the same way Ronda does. A lot of celebrities & athletes like Colin Kapernick have the same mentality as Ronda.

That mentality emphasizes living in denial to be "empowering" and "liberating". At the same time they typically view facts to be "slavery" and "evil".

Its not a big surprise that someone like Ronda who subscribes to those things would chose to live in denial over how good (or bad) her striking is. Play the blame game in terms of blaming having to do a lot of interviews and media for her loss to Holly Holm. And do whatever she can to avoid facts and reality.

Living in denial to escape facts and reality is the type of mindset and perspective Ronda and many others are brought up in and encouraged to embrace.

Its not a big surprise that type of mentality isn't very compatible with sports or martial arts, which emphasize looking at reality to become a better person and improve yourself.


Hard work is the only real PED.

Wow. I'm not sure a nailhead has been hit harder or more accurately than this. Run for office, you'll have my vote.

Yes, I had very similar thoughts and in fact was thinking about writing up a piece about how Rousey's embarassment perfectly puts an end to a year where modern feminism took massive hits. Rousey bought into her own "I am a woman and can do anything!" BS so heavily as to become delusional about the real limits on what she can and can't do. It's really tragic because if Rousey had a good coach and an intelligent mindset, she very well could have been an amazing fighter.

I guess it takes all kinds. Except for all the casual fans, most have known for the longest time that her unbecoming behavior is more of a defining characteristic than her wins, losses, and (poor) personal choices. To uncover the "whys", you'd have to peel back the layers of her personality and experience. In the end, however, it might not be as complex as some might imagine.
