Ronda Rousey's Mom Thinks She Should Retire


There is a lot of speculation about Ronda Rousey's future in MMA after her second straight knockout loss.  Ronda released a statement to ESPN on her future:

"I want to say thank you to all of my fans who have been there for me in not only the greatest moments but in the most difficult ones. Words cannot convey how much your love and support means to me," Rousey said in a statement provided to ESPN.

"Returning to not just fighting, but winning, was my entire focus this past year. However, sometimes -- even when you prepare and give everything you have and want something so badly -- it doesn't work how you planned. I take pride in seeing how far the women's division has come in the UFC and commend all the other women who have been part of making this possible, including Amanda.

"I need to take some time to reflect and think about the future. Thank you for believing in me and understanding."

Ronda will take some time to decide her future.  Rousey's mother has already made up her mind.  TMZ caught up Ronda's mom who thinks she should retire, "I would like to see her retire.  I would have liked to see her retire a long time ago.  Who wants to see their kid get hit?  She’s got a lot of talent in a lot of other things.  Movies, writing, producing, she’s really smart.  I told her that at the very beginning when she started this, I said ‘You’re smart and beautiful, let the stupid people get punched in the face.’  Sorry, stupid people!"

It’s hard to argue with Ronda's mom.  She doesn't need the UFC anymore to make money.
