Everyone and their mom seems to be weighing in on the news that Ronda Rousey felt suicidal after her loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. From fighters to celebrities, and athletes in other sports... there are many people who've shown support for Rousey as a fighter and as a woman.
But Brock Lesnar had a little bit of tough love for Rousey, who he has been a fan of in the past. He's had his fair share of critiques on her though. He once mentioned that she's a "super athlete in a weak division".
Take a look at what he had to say on SportsCenter:
"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."
But he had a point that he made about her movie career and endorsements as well...
“She can do whatever she wants to do, and I think she's proven that,” Lesnar said before suggesting that she should concentrate less on what’s outside the cage and focus on what's inside of it. “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."
Do you agree with Lesnar here? He's basically saying that she needs to focus on fighting and get her head more in the game.
I appreciate that Brock is offering this advice to Ronda without being overly disrespectful or judgmental. I think he honestly has some good points.
Should Ronda focus on movies or fighting?
