Videos: Ronda Rousey fights tears discussing Amanda Nunes loss, also has awkward 'Raw' segment


Ronda Rousey has refused to discuss her devastating knockout loss to Amanda Nunes – until now.

In a video segment for WWE to promote next month’s WrestleMania pay-per-view, Rousey spoke candidly about her meteoric rise in MMA and her eventual downfall, which concluded with a punishing TKO loss to Nunes in just 48 seconds at UFC 207 on Dec. 30, 2016.

That was the last time Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) stepped foot inside the octagon, and for the first time on camera she shared how difficult it was for her to deal with emotionally.

“I remember my last fight, walking away thinking God hates me,” Rousey said. “I had nothing left in me. My husband (UFC heavyweight Travis Browne) is amazing, and he really brought me out of some tough times. He would just look at me and say, ‘You’re not only this. You’re more than just a fighter.’ And that’s not a bad thing, that’s not something I should be ashamed of. It’s something I should embrace and showcase to the world, and that’s why I’m here.”

Rousey continued.

“I’m not afraid to care anymore,” she said. “I needed to be miserable then to be truly happy now. It’s all led to this, and I didn’t even realize that I’ve always been on this path.”

That path has led Rousey to become a full-time pro wrestler. She officially signed with WWE in January and has since all but closed the door on ever returning to MMA. Rousey will have her first match April 8 at Wrestlemania 34 in a mixed tag-team match with Kurt Angle against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.

You can watch Rousey’s interview segment with Angle in the video above.

Also, if you want to watch Rousey’s latest in-ring appearance, you can check that out in the video below. But just so you know: It’s a bit awkward.
