Ronda Rousey's mom on TUF


Ronda Rousey famously learned to fight under the guidance of her mother, Dr. Ann Maria Rousey DeMars, the first American to win a World Judo Championship. Dr. De Mars was given to taking maxims like “Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect” and making them more pointed.

“You know what happens when you practice half-@$$, Ronda?" Dr. DeMars asked her daughter. "You f@#%ing lose!”

Dr. DeMars appeared on Wednesday's episode of The Ultimate Fighter 18 to offer Team Rousey some advice.

"A lot of people will understand me a little more after this visit from my mom," said Ronda Rousey.

The Williams sisters, Tiger Woods and Tom Brady are perfect examples of this.

Have you looked at her body of work apart from the Olympics, don't be a fucking douche, their is more then just Olympic judo. Using that logic Daniel Cormier MUST BE A POS WRESTLER THEN since he couldn't even make weight for the Olympics.

Tyson was a nature killer with or without Cuss, Ronda didn't win gold... case closed.

It's SOP... It's used everywhere because it works. Great champions are all like this. Look what brainwashing did for Mike Tyson when Cuss got hold of him.All of these fighters have someone whispering this stuff in to their ear. From the first day of training camp, all the way up through the walk out to the fight and the introduction. They're saying "you're the best" "you're the greatest". Shit, Diego Sanchez chants the stuff to himself while doing crazy cartwheels. Whatever works...

I enjoyed what she had to say. Would have liked to seen more. Did anyone put out a blog with more insight?
