“Winning is a b–ch. But revenge is a motherf—er!” Those are the blunt words Ronda‘s, 29, mother instilled in her after her harsh loss to Holly Holm, 34. Ronda was speaking at the 2016 female empowerment event, Women in Action in Chicago, July 15 when she revealed her mother’s words of wisdom.
The Olympic medalist told the Robin Roberts, 55, and the attendees a story of when her mother, Ann Maria De Mars, (the first American to take home the Gold at the World Judo Championships in 1984), pulled her aside on the mat to fiercely give her the advice that she, herself had to experience at one point during a loss of her own.
Ronda was fired up as she told the story, even doing a rendition of her mother’s famous speech that had the crowd going nuts! Everyone in the audience belted out laughs as they clapped for the UFC fighter. “I want to win my belt back,” TMZ claimed she said.
