Ronda Rousey is plan­ning to re­tire soon

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 29-year-old UFC fighter has re­vealed she will be “wrap­ping it up” soon but is feel­ing pos­i­tive about the train­ing for her up­com­ing fight. Asked how long she will con­tinue fight­ing for, she said: “Not that long, I’m wrap­ping it up. This is def­i­nitely one of my last fights. Every­one bet­ter watch! The show isn’t gonna be around for­ever.” Speak­ing on The Ellen De­Generes Show, she added: “I feel good ... I’ve trained twice a day since the be­gin­ning of Au­gust. So I fi­nally feel like in su­per ninja good mode ... “It’s the buildup that’s more tir­ing than ev­ery­thing else. If it just hap­pened right now, I wouldn’t be ner­vous at all. It’s the wait­ing.” Mean­while, Ronda pre­vi­ously re­vealed she be­lieves ev­ery­thing hap­pens “for a rea­son”. She said: “A lot of peo­ple think they’re a good per­son be­cause they don’t do this, and they don’t do that. But for me, it’s not about what you ab­stain from, it’s about what you do that makes a dif­fer­ence. “When it comes to chal­lenges, I hon­estly be­lieve that things hap­pen for a rea­son. At the time yes it’s hard on a per­sonal, emo­tional level and it’s hard to look past what’s hap­pen­ing to the fu­ture, but you have to be­lieve in your­self be­cause down the line in two, five, ten years’ time you’ll look back and think that was ac­tu­ally the best thing that ever hap­pened to me. “Ev­ery sin­gle set­back it’s not the end of the world, it’s just the be­gin­ning of that les­son. That had to hap­pen for me to learn these cer­tain things and it’s not about be­ing com­pletely in­fal­li­ble, it’s about get­ting bet­ter and there’s no room for im­prove­ment in per­fect.”
