Demetrious Johnson To Ronda Rousey: "Grow The F--- Up"

But the pound-for-pound king has grown into a consistently solid sound-bite who isn't willing to pull any punches.

On Rousey's status among the best women fighters: "Ronda Rousey, she's still a champion to me and to so many people". I visualize myself losing most of the time just because I've seen so many champions lose, and they don't know how to take it. "Their whole world is upside down, 'Oh, my God, what am I going to do?'"

Ronda Rousey spoke with MMAjunkie for a new interview.

UFC superstar Demetrious Johnson has some tough love for Ronda Rousey - "You got your ass beat, grow the f*ck up". It happens. It's mixed martial arts. "But today, I want to make a big special request to my girlfriend, who is here, I want to ask her in marriage". If I lose, I'll be like, I lost.

Almost five months later, Rousey has still not spoken about the loss to Nunes. Everybody f--ing losses. It's part of the sport. It's part of the sport.

"Everybody says 'You need to go do a superfight!'" he complained.

"I cried and I cried (when I lost to Brad Pickett)", Johnson said. "I have never missed weight". I like to do that - I like my media and sponsorship obligations, but when it's time for it, I do this.

"Is it different for Ronda?" She doesn't give anybody the time of day, blah, blah, blah. People can not say that, because they don't know the truth. I'm going to take this seriously, because I have a good life. If you say it means the world to you, are you setting yourself up for potential disappointment or abject failure? "I will do that if you pay me enough".

Johnson (26-2-1) couldn't have said it any better. "You look at Jon Jones". Pay-Per-View buys, it's nice, don't get me wrong. She disappeared nearly entirely off the radar for more than a year, but finally made her comeback against current champ Nunes at UFC 207 this past December. "They don't need to because they make that type of money". Nothing changed. Nobody said, 'You (expletive) suck, blah, blah, blah.' When I started to win, nothing still changed.

The 30-year-old set multiple records in the UFC and catapulted the women's fight game into the mainstream. "That's my philosophy. Five or six more years, I'm ready to move on".
