Rousey's mom on why Ronda doesn't have a boyfriend

 

BloodyElbow's Steph Daniels sat down recently with Ronda Rousey's mom, Dr. AnnMaria DeMars, for a wide-ranging interview.

"I worry about her all the time, I think I'll be 95 and she'll be in her 70's and I will still worry about her," said Dr. DeMars, laughing. "One thing that concerns me, is that the more fame and attention you get, the more people come around that are there for the afterglow. She doesn't have a boyfriend right now, and part of the reason for that is because it's really hard to know if people are really liking her for her, or if they just want to be there when the cameras are on. That applies to friends and business associates. I worry about that whole Hollywood type scene where people think, 'You're only my friend as long as you're doing well.'

"When she steps in the cage, I worry about her. It's always way worse than judo, because with judo, I know exactly what's going to happen. With MMA, I don't. I don't even know the rules all that well. That's where anxiety about anything comes from. It's the uncertainty. It's much more nerve racking. I am just very happy that they're over quickly."

If MMA makes mom nervous, Cris 'Cyborg' Santos just brings out scorn.

"She asked to be released from her contract because I think she's realized she can't win without the steroids," said Ronda's moms. "She's not stupid, and knows that Ronda would beat her. Ronda holds a grudge, and I'm pretty sure she would break something on her. She definitely holds a grudge and takes things personally, and I think the referee would end up having to pull her off."

In addition to holding grudges with potentially catastrophic conquesences for Cris Cyborg's arm, 26-year-old Ronda Rousey is a budding philanthropist.

"She does so many charities, I can't even keep track of them. I'll tell you the ones I can remember. The one that takes the most time is Free Rice. Up to this point, she's raised 76 million grains of rice, which feeds something like 22,000 people. Ronda's also doing a clinic after her fight on March 9th, where all the proceeds will go to the Didi Hirsch Mental Health Clinic. She'll also match with a $5000 donation of her own. She's auctioning off fight gear that she's used to donate that money to the clinic and various other charities, too. We gathered up a van full of clothes for MMA For The Homeless. People don't know that about her, and it's not something a PR agent or publicist sets up. It's all her idea."

I would.

I was with ya until you said that Ronda will literally murder Cyborg.I don't think she would do that and lose the money in a possible rematch.....and her freedom.
