Ronda Rousey seems to finally be getting over her shocking loss to Holly Holm that flipped her entire career upside down.

“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,” Rousey told the crowd.

She also added, “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.” (VIDEO: Ronda Rousey Announces She Can Bite Apples Again)
