This is sure to ruffle some feathers.
One of the UFC's biggest stars, Ronda Rousey, has filed for five trademarks surronding the acronym "FTA", which stands for "F&ck Them All," as she heads into her return to the Octagon. This was reported by Darren Rovell from ESPN.
Prior to this, Rousey filed for trademarks for other phrases like "DNB" which stands for "Do Nothing B&tch". She plans on making a movie around that phrase with Tina Fey at the helm. She also used the phrase during the buildup to her women's bantamweight title defense against Holly Holm.
She felt like her fans abandoned her... and they kind of did...
"Honestly, my thought in the medical room, I was sitting in the corner and was like, 'What am I anymore if I'm not this? Literally sitting there thinking about killing myself. In that exact second, I'm like, 'I'm nothing. What do I do anymore? No one gives a s--t about me anymore without this.
I looked up and saw my man, Travis (Browne), was standing there. I'm looking up at him and was just like, 'I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive."
It feels like Ronda's support came from huge fans who are still her fans, but also from those who respected her because nobody could touch her. But after she was proverbially "touched" (Read: KO'd), she didn't have that same level of support.
It was in that same interview with ESPN, that she unveiled this new "FTA" mantra.
It hasn't been received well by everybody, though... here's podcaster Steven Crowder who clearly isn't a fan:
I think there's one certain thing that will come out of this new mantra
Her haters will hate her more and her fans will become either more die-hard or jump off the bandwagon if they haven't already.
I guess we'll see...
