Demetrious Johnson to Rousey: ‘Grow the fuck up’
Demetrious Johnson lobbed some serious shots at Ronda Rousey in an interview this week with Sports IlluRonda Rousey strated.
“You look at Ronda Rousey,” Johnson told SI. “You got your ass beat, grow the f*ck up. It happens. It’s mixed martial arts. I don’t want to be like that. If I lose, I’ll be like, I lost.”
“Everybody f*cking loses. It’s part of the sport. Grow up. Look, Ronda, you lost two f*cking fights in a row, and you made more f*cking money than the women’s roster. You’ll be fine, don’t worry about it.”
“I was like, It’s part of life, you’re going to f—ing lose, I’m over it,” Johnson said. “I came home and nothing changed. Nothing changed. Nobody said, ‘You f—ing suck, blah, blah, blah.’ When I started to win, nothing still changed. The only thing that changed is people started to recognize me more. So now that’s my mindset. Somebody came to me and told me: ‘You know what I love about you?’ ‘What?’ ‘The outcome of your fights never dictates the person you are.’”
