As we all know, Ronda Rousey is one of the biggest stars in the history of mixed martial arts. In equal measure, she’s also a pretty polarizing figure. The manner in which she left the UFC left a bad taste in the mouth of many, and she hasn’t really been back since her loss to Amanda Nunes.

She instead opted to step into the world of professional wrestling. While she had a pretty successful run, it doesn’t seem as if she’s interested in returning anytime soon.

In a recent interview, Rousey opened up on why she hasn’t really attended any UFC events since she left all those years ago.

Rousey’s claim

“Ask the MMA media that, they are the ones saying it,” she said about the ‘hate’ she received after her two losses. “That I was a fraud and I was hype and I was exposed and I was never anything and just lucky and all of these things. And that I wasn’t gracious or a good loser, or every other thing that I just assume at this point because I don’t take the time to read it.”

“Everything that could be said that was negative was said,” she continued. “And I feel like I’m really vilified by MMA media at this point and I’m not really welcomed back. Which is why I haven’t gone to a UFC fight since, because I’m pretty sure if I walked into the arena, I’d be booed.”
