Rhonda Rousey Never Gave Up and Neither Should You

If you thought, you couldn't make a comeback after a major loss take a look at UFC fighter Rhonda Rousey. For the second time, the UFC fighter Rousey was defeated in an embarrassing match. This time against, Amanda Nunes, who knocked Rousey out after only 48 seconds in the ring, on December 30, 2016. After the fight critics and even Rousey's mother said it was time for her to retire. Back in, February 2016 right after the first fight that nearly destroyed her career, Rousey sat down in an interview with Ellen to talk about the fight and what she took away from the moment that almost ended her career. She said,

"Maybe winning all the time isn’t what is best for anybody. Everyone has their moment of picking themselves up off the floor. And I’ve gone through several of my [moments of picking myself up] but no one has actually ever seen me go through it. So maybe I had to be that example of picking myself off the floor in front of everyone, maybe that’s what I’m meant for. I really do believe that I’m still undefeated because being defeated is a choice. Everyone has losses in their life, but I choose to always be undefeated."

Up until that fight Rousey had been undefeated. Even though Rousey lost for the second time the most important thing is that she came back and keep trying. It is worse to give up then to not try at all. If you learn anything from Rousey it should be to never give up and don't let your defeats define you.
