Ronda Rousey’s last two fights in the UFC were rough. In her first fight, Ronda, who was once thought to be unstoppable in her division, was demolished by up-and-coming MMA star, Holly Holm.
In her comeback match, she was again demolished by reigning Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes.
Ronda obviously did not take the losses lightly. She even talked about suicide on the Ellen show, but looking back on it, Ronda is happy that she lost those matches because they led to her WWE career.
Rousey told ESPN:
Everything really does happen for a reason. I’m just so grateful. I thought I never would be [grateful] for [the losses], but time is a great teacher. I’m just really, really glad I gave it time instead of giving up and feeling it was the end of the world. There’s so many people who encounter tragedies who feel like the world and time won’t heal it. But all I can say to those people is: Just give it time, even if you think time can’t heal it. You never know what will happen and where it will lead you. Every missed opportunity is a blessing in disguise. I really believe it now.
Ronda Rousey made her debut in the WWE last night at Wrestlemania 34. She teamed up with Kurt Angle to defeat Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
