Ronda Rousey Felt Vilified By MMA Media After Leaving UFC



Ronda Rousey believes she was vilified by the MMA media after she made the decision to leave the UFC behind her following a series of defeats.

On a recent edition of the “High Performance” podcast, Rousey discussed the criticism she received from the media after leaving the UFC octagon behind. She said,

“They were the ones saying it. That I was a fraud and I was hype and I was exposed and I was never anything and just lucky and all of these things. And that I wasn’t gracious or a good loser, or you know every other thing… I feel like I’m really vilified by MMA media at this point and I’m not really welcomed back, which is why I haven’t gone to a UFC fight since, ’cause I’m pretty sure if I walked into the arena, I’d be booed. Yeah! That’s how it feels. 

“A lot of people don’t give everything that they have because they don’t want to face it if it wasn’t enough but I realized it was enough for me but not for people on the outside. But it really wasn’t for them.”

In her newest memoir ‘Our Fight,‘ Rousey speaks at length about her UFC career and reveals she felt suicidal following her loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193.

Rousey would go on to join WWE in 2018 and returned to the promotion in 2022. She left WWE in August 2023 following her loss to Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam.
