Ronda Rousey Explains Her Ultimate Fighter Finale Behavior

Look, we understand that it has to suck being in the spotlight so much because, well, people are downright mean most of the time. UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey seems to have some serious issues with this, as she was unhappy with how she was portrayed in The Ultimate Fighter 18. Hell, she went to Europe to avoid being around while it aired, that is how much it bothered her.

“The whole day I was just being instigated by everybody and I was tired of being instigated,” Rousey told MMAjunkie. “I was being forced into situations where people were trying to instigate me.”

“I just got back from ‘Fast and Furious’ and all day, every single person who walked up to me was like ‘Oh my god, did you hear? Paul Walker died,’” Rousey recalled. “It was like a piece of gossip and they couldn’t wait. They were hoping they would be the first one to tell me so they could see my reaction first, and I was just really disgusted with everyone’s behavior about that the whole night.”

“I’m happy for Jessamyn (Duke), but Peggy (Morgan) lost, and I was heartbroken for her, then I saw Davey (Grant) and Jessica (Rakoczy), lose and I was heartbroken for them, too,” Rousey said.

“That’s what was bugging me the most,” Rousey said. “Was what my kids were going through and how just insensitively people were treating the tragedy and what happened to Paul and his family.”
