Rousey feels she isn’t welcome anymore

Speaking to High Performance, “Rowdy” opened up about why she feels that she isn’t welcome to watch UFC events after parting ways with the company. According to Rousey, there is nothing else to blame but the MMA media.

For Rousey, the MMA media has already said and written a lot of negative things about her that fans no longer want to show her some love and respect.

“I don’t know. Ask the MMA media. they’re the ones saying it,” Rousey said. “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, that I was ungracious or I was a 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, and I feel really vilified by MMA media at this point and not really welcome back, which is why I haven’t gone to a UFC fight since [I left]. I’m pretty sure if I walked into the arena, I’d be booed,” she continued. “That’s how it feels.”

Rousey did her best to please everybody

Rousey fought her guts out in her last two UFC fights in which she both suffered a devastating KO/TKO loss. Nevertheless, “Rowdy” knew she gave it all she got but she felt like MMA fans still expected more from her.

“I live it. I guess I wish it didn’t [bother me]. I gave them everything I had, and it wasn’t enough,” Rousey reflected. “But that’s why a lot of people don’t give everything that they have, because they don’t want to face it if it wasn’t enough. I realize it was enough for me, but not enough for people on the outside. But it really wasn’t for them.”

Rousey has long been accusing the media of hating her and kicking her when she was already down. Clearly, it wasn’t how the former UFC women’s bantamweight champ about the pro wrestling media.

Since transitioning to pro wrestling, Rousey has become one of the most exciting personalities in the WWE. She last fought professionally in MMA at UFC 207 where she was TKO’d by Amanda Nunes.
