Ronda Rousey did an interview with ESPN.com following Wrestlemania and here are a few highlights...
Being happy she lost her UFC fights: ďIt was me versus the world in an individual sport. I thought I would never say this, but Iím so happy I lost those fights [to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes] because it led me here. This is so worth it. Everything really does happen for a reason. Iím just so grateful. I thought I never would be [grateful] for [the losses], but time is a great teacher. Iím just really, really glad I gave it time instead of giving up and feeling it was the end of the world. Thereís so many people who encounter tragedies who feel like the world and time wonít heal it. But all I can say to those people is: Just give it time, even if you think time canít heal it. You never know what will happen and where it will lead you. Every missed opportunity is a blessing in disguise. I really believe it now.Ē
Apologizing to fans: ďI owe the WWE universe an apology, because I thought they were going to boo me out of the building from day one. They really accepted me from day one. Hopefully, I satisfied a lot of skeptics tonight. I underestimated how kind the WWE universe would be. I thought any outsiders would be shunned. I was expecting to get shunned and to have to battle to be accepted. I worked my ass off to pay respect to whatís so important to them, and hopefully they saw that tonight. Iím just so grateful, man. Iím trying my best to deserve it.Ē
