Ronda Rousey, once one of the most dominant figures in mixed martial arts (MMA), remains a significant personality in the sport even after her departure. Her journey from judo bronze medalist at the 2008 Summer Olympics to UFC bantamweight champion captured the imagination of fans worldwide. However, her final two MMA fights against Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes left her feeling vilified by the media.

Ronda Rousey’s Fallout After Back-to-Back Losses

In her second book, “Our Fight,” Rousey candidly discussed her decision to leave MMA. She revealed that a history of concussions played a role in her exit. But beyond physical health concerns, she also felt mistreated by members of the media. Rousey’s perception was that she was labeled a fraud, hype, and exposed. She faced criticism for her ungraciousness and perceived lack of sportsmanship.

The MMA Media’s Role

When asked about the negative portrayal, Ronda Rousey pointed to the MMA media. Whether it was established outlets like the Los Angeles Times or newer platforms like YouTube preview shows, she felt the weight of their judgment. She admitted that she hadn’t read all the criticism but believed she was vilified. As a result, she hasn’t attended a UFC event since her departure, fearing she’d be booed if she walked into the arena.

Rousey’s emotional struggles were evident. She acknowledged that she gave everything she had, but it wasn’t enough for some. The dichotomy between her internal satisfaction and external perception weighed heavily on her. Her armbar victories in her early career showcased her dominance, but the losses tarnished her legacy in the eyes of many.

Ronda Rousey’s legacy is complex. She blazed a trail for women in MMA, but her outspokenness and polarizing persona drew both admiration and criticism. As she reflects on her journey, she grapples with the love and hate she received. Perhaps, someday, she’ll return to the spotlight – not as a fighter, but as a symbol of resilience and controversy.
