Ronda Rousey News: UFC Fighter 'Fine Not Being Perfect' After Recent Defeat

In Ronda Rousey news, the UFC fighter is coming back stronger than ever after being defeated by Holly Holm last November. While the former UFC champion's winning streak abruptly came to an end, Rousey is no longer letting that upset bring her down.

After remaining out of the public eye for several months, Ronda Rousey starred in commercial for Reebok, where she explained that she is content with not being perfect, reported People. The advertisement began with the former UFC champion giving the lowdown on perfection.

"Here's the thing about being perfect. Perfect never gets truly tested. Perfect never gets to silence its critics. Perfect never gets a shot at redemption."

Ronda Rousey made news by saying, "So yeah. I'm fine not being perfect."

Although the fighter discussed contemplating suicide on Ellen earlier this year after being defeated by Holly Holm, she has since then changed her tune entirely.

In a behind-the-scenes video done by Reebok, Rousey opens up about being criticized for her body and physical abilities in the ring. She explained how "[t]he acceptance of criticism" is an aspect of who she is.

"I am not a lukewarm person, I'm very polar. Like, people either hate my guts, or they really like me. I'm fine with that and letting the world know I'm okay with that."

Ronda Rousey news has lately been filled with positivity. Although the former UFC champion showed off her amazing body while posing for Sports Illustrated, Rousey makes it a point to "show her imperfections to the world."

"I had tried to show as many of the imperfections and flaws as I can...I go out and walk around where I'm not wearing makeup or anything, like I like how my face looks. I'm not trying to make it look perfect all the time, I'm trying to be myself all the time, you know I think that's realistic and people don't see that that often."

In other Ronda Rousey news, the star recently shared how she thinks her critics are ridiculous.

The UFC fighter said, "I don't really understand what everybody expects from me, or what their idea of perfect would be for me."

Not only does Ronda Rousey not care what her critics think, but she also hopes to show other women that it's okay not be perfect. The former UFC champion said that she feels "like a lot of women are under the pressure of making everyone happy with them all the time." Rousey also added that everyone needs to deal with critics, whether they like it or not.

"It's good to have examples out there of, you know what, not everybody's going to like you."

Ronda Rousey also made news by saying that it's fine to have enemies. She explained that "life will go on" despite these negative incidents, and people "will be okay" and "you can still love yourself."

While the UFC champion has been out of the ring for quite some time, there is some speculation that Rousey might be making her way back to UFC soon. Still, Rousey hasn't made an official announcement regarding her return, according to USA Today.

In Ronda Rousey news, the UFC champion has been up to other important endeavors. The fighter and fellow Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Ashley Graham, recently launched a campaign together called #PerfectNever, encouraging women to embrace their differences.

In the New York City luncheon launch for their campaign, Rousey and Graham asked guests to fill out their definition of femininity on cards. Rousey also participated in a question-and-answer session, where she discussed how she deals with criticism.

"People either hate my guts or really, really, like me. And I'm okay with that."
