Brock Lesnar’s Valuable Advice To Ronda Rousey Should Also Be Heard By Cam Newton
Since Ronda Rousey said on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday that she's been having suicidal thoughts after her loss to Holly Holm, plenty of people have weighed in with their opinion on how she should proceed with her career. But none seem to make more sense than Brock Lesnar -- the former UFC heavyweight champ who transitioned to pro wrestling.
In an interview with ESPN, Lesnar said that Rousey has to learn how to lose before she can learn to win. It's a lesson Lesnar learned, he said, in his early days of wrestling (Lesnar was a high school and junior college champion before winning the NCAA Div. I heavyweight title as a senior at the University of Minnesota).
“Well, I’m a big fan Ronda’s, and have been from the beginning and one thing she should have learned a long time ago is that you have to learn how to lose before you can actually win. That was one thing that my coach taught me at a very young age. Because I was a bad loser. You’ve got to be able to get back on the horse.
"This life is very precious and very short and one fight isn’t going to make or break her career. She’s just got to get back on the horse again and figure it out. And she will."
"You can't be a fighter and be in ten movies a year. She's going to have to step back and find out what Ronda wants to do."
This advice isn't just specific to Rousey -- every athlete should heed them, including Cam Newton. There never was an athlete, in fact, who needed this advice more. Once Newton learns how to lose, there will be no stopping him.
