Ronda Rousey seems to have finally come to terms with her Holly Holm loss.
Her appearance at Reebok’s Luncheon for Inspiration Women earlier this week is a far cry from the emotional Ronda being interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres weeks ago.
Rousey said that she believes something positive will come out of her shocking defeat.
“When it comes to challenges, I honestly believe that things happen for a reason. At the time yes it’s hard on a personal, emotional level and it’s hard to look past what’s happening to the future, but you have to believe in yourself because down the line in two, five, ten years’ time you’ll look back and think that was actually the best thing that ever happened to me.”
The former champ used to think everything is all about winning, but her loss humbled her.
“Every single setback it’s not the end of the world, it’s just the beginning of that lesson. That had to happen for me to learn these certain things and it’s not about being completely infallible, it’s about getting better and there’s no room for improvement in perfect.”
