Ronda Rousey was the biggest and most talked about sports star on the planet before she lost her UFC championship belt to Holly Holm. It’s been tough getting used to the fall and the toll has really been taken. In fact, Rousey even admitted to having had suicidal thoughts in a tear-filled interview with Ellen DeGeneres recently.
Brock Lesnar was asked his thoughts on it all on SportsCenter on Tuesday night. He said this:
“One thing that I learned and she should have learned a long time ago was that you have to learn how to lose before you can actually win. You’ve got to be able to get back on the horse and this life is very precious and very short. One fight isn’t going to make or break her career. She’s just got to get back on the horse again and figure it out and she will.”
Wise words from the former UFC heavyweight champion.
Here’s what Rousey said about her suicidal thoughts on The Ellen Show:
Holly Holm was also asked her thoughts on the situation recently. Here’s what the champ said:
“There’s a lot of things around that. When I heard that she said that, for me it’s one of those things it’s like, ‘How do I respond to that?’ ” Holm said. “I don’t want to say I’m sorry because I think on a competitive level for me, if somebody was to say they’re sorry after [beating me], it’s like, ‘No, I’m a competitor.’ I’m not a charity case.
“I feel like that’s something the best thing is for me not to say anything at all. I don’t want to say that I’m glad that she felt that way and I don’t want to say, ‘Oh I’m so sorry.’ It’s something I think that you have to dig through on your own. In the long run, she’ll be stronger mentally from it.”
Will there be a rematch? Apparently so. Watch this space.
