From one former UFC champion to another. WWE superstar Brock Lesnar has some words of advice for Ronda Rousey after finding out she wanted to kill herself…
It’s been just a few months now since Ronda Rousey was dethroned as the UFC women’s bantamweight champion in spectacular fashion. The formerly dominant 135-pound queen came crashing to earth against Holly Holm at UFC 193.
‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ pounded Rousey’s face in to the canvas, finishing the helpless champ with a nasty head kick followed by some ground and pound. The drama that followed that November night is still continuing to this day.
It’s no secret, many fans were satisfied in seeing the ‘cocky’ champion getting knocked out cold, but nobody expected to hear her say she had been thinking of killing herself after the loss.
As per LowkickMMA.com:
“I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself and that exact second I’m like ‘I’m nothing, what do I do anymore and no one gives a s–t about me anymore without this.’
Well, those comments went viral, and a fellow former champion in WWE megastar Brock Lesnar has reacted with the following comments:
“I’m a big fan of Ronda’s and have been since the beginning,” Lesnar said. “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.”
“That was one thing my coach taught me at a very young age because I was a bad loser whenever I’d get beat,” Lesnar said.
“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.”
“When you’re a top athlete, and even people in the movie industry, people that are great at one thing — their work ethic is there,” Lesnar said. “I had no idea I was going to become UFC heavyweight champion of the world, but that was a goal of mine. As I stepped into the Octagon and faced a number of different foes, I knew that I could be. You just work hard at it. If it’s in your heart and your mind and you work at it and want to do it and believe in yourself, things can happen.
“She can do whatever she wants to do and I think she’s proven that. I think she’s got a lot on her plate. You can’t be a fighter and be in 10 movies a year. She’s going to have to step back and find out what Ronda wants to do moving forward.”
