Ronda Rousey

Listen up Ronda Rousey haters, the UFC bantamweight champ knows you’re out there and says when she’s gone and retires from the sport you are all going to wish she was still around.

If you didn’t know by now, because of all the attention it got, Rousey recently appeared on ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ with her coach Edmond Tarverdyan. They talked about a wide range of topics, including Cyborg and when Rousey plans on hanging it up.

At one point Rousey sort of delivered a message to all her haters, those who complain whenever her name is mentioned in an article or on TV, saying that she knows that once she leaves they’re all going to miss her.

Check it out!

“I don’t even think I’m going to know what is going on right now or realize what is going on right now until afterward, until it’s all done. I could just try to do the best that I can in the moment, but I don’t really think that any of us really comprehend what’s going on right now until we’re looking at it in hindsight. And that’s the kind of thing, I think it’s kind of funny. There’s so many people who just live to hate me, but when I’m gone, they’re going to miss me. They really are. It’s like, how are they ever going to have a bad guy better than Heath Ledger as ‘The Joker?’ Like, you miss him! You need him, ‘The Joker’ is gone, you’re never going to have him again. I’m not the protagonist. I’m the antagonist. Because the protagonist just reacts. They do nothing. The whole storyline, the whole everything that goes on, is completely dependent on the antagonist. I’m the one who’s forcing everybody to do something, and so I like to think of myself as more of the heel, the bad guy who you somehow sometimes root for. You can’t help it a little bit sometimes, but sometimes you hate them. I think the fact that mixed emotions come out is one of the more interesting things. I’m not trying to have everyone like me. I’m trying to have everybody care about what I’m doing.”
