After Ronda Rousey’s devastating loss to Amanda Dunes last night, TMZ spoke with Ronda’s mom, AnnMaria De Mars, who was pretty honest about her desire to see her daughter retire.
“I think making snap decisions like that is probably not the best idea, so I don’t know,” she said when asked if her daughter would retire. But she certainly wouldn’t mind it if she did. “I would like to see her retire. I would have liked to see her retire a long time ago. Who wants to see their kid get hit? She’s got a lot of talent in a lot of other things. Movies, writing, producing, she’s really smart. I told her that at the very beginning when she started this, I said ‘You’re smart and beautiful, let the stupid people get punched in the face.’ Sorry, stupid people!”
Ronda’s mom seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Ronda would be wise to take her advice.
