In preparation for Ronda Rousey coming on Larry King Now I just finished her book My Fight/Your Fight.To be honest, even if she wasn't coming on the show I still would've read the book.It's a candid look at her life, her relationships, her career, her triumphs, and her hardships.Ronda is not one to hold her tongue or to act in a certain way because others want her to -- you can see that in the recent news of how she answered the question 'Would you ever fight Floyd Mayweather?'.She tells it like she sees it and would rather be booed for being true to herself than congratulated for being fake and ya know what - I respect the hell out of her for it.
To be the best at what you do takes an immense amount of hard work, faith and mental fortitude - Ronda has it all and more.As a woman I am so proud that she is repping all the young girls who one day dream at being the best in what was once considered a man's game.As Sports Illustrated recently reported - "Ronda Rousey is the world's most dominant athlete."The WORLD'S most dominant athlete - you go girl.
