It wasn't until UFC 175 that she opened my eyes and made me realize that I was letting my bias towards her blind my logical reasoning. She would co-main event against fellow bantamweight Alexis Davis and defeated her dominantly by KO through the combination of an overhand right, a judo throw, and punches from hell once they hit the deck. It was then that I knew she was different, she wasn't a one trick pony but a once in a lifetime athlete who transcends the sport and reaches the mainstream through her absolute dominance of her competition. Then I asked myself how is she so great? How does she make it look so easy? And why does everyone including Hollywood want to be associated with Ronda Rousey? I scoured a few articles and read that she was a hard worker and a former olympian medal winner so maybe I thought that is why she is better than everyone and let it be believing I solved it.
Unbeknownst to me she had a book coming out today that I only found out about yesterday. I felt if it was an official biography done by the 135 pound champ I had to get my hands on it to understand why she truly became so great. And she showed me through what felt like a first person perspective the events that brought her to greatness. I felt like I was Rowdy Ronda Rousey going through the death of her dad, her failures and shortcomings at the pinnacle of Judo competition, living in a car, her trying to win over her current mma coach to train her, the first mma fight, the strategy to bring women's mma to the limelight, and what kinds of things she plans to do with the future. This amazing book which I read in under 6 hours was of the most inspirational books I have ever laid my eyes upon and felt necessary to write a review. Ronda Rousey hasn't just helped pave the way for women's mma but is paving the way for women to not limit themselves to doing generic gender jobs and to realize that you can be whoever you want and follow whatever path you choose. This book will show you the future of women in and out of competition and about one of the greatest athletes and more importantly one of the greatest humans this generation has ever seen.
-A former Ronda hater now a fan. :-)
And yet that is precisely where "My Fight/Your Fight" is structured so artfully. Rondas childhood and career to the present day is all detailed thoroughly yet the book itself smartly constructs itself as more of an inspirational than simply an autobiography. Each chapter begins with a quote/life lesson learned prefacing the circumstances related to it. Where most bios of someone Rondas age would feel like they are leaving you with only half the story, the life lesson structure brings "My fight" to a satisfying conclusion.
You don't need to be a fight fan to enjoy Rondas story or her infectious personality.
Your guaranteed to examine your own life throughout and probably face some truths about yourself as well as you read the extremes one person goes through to be the best in the world.
A great book I think everyone can benefit from reading personally. AMUST BUY.
