In case you’ve somehow missed the biggest sports news in ages, Ronda Jean Rousey is an American mixed martial artist who just had a twelve fight winning streak broken. She was the first UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and was undefeated in her first twelve fights. She has won eleven of her fights in the first round and in 2015, Rousey was ranked number one of fifty Most Dominant Athletes Alive.
So what happened?
Well, she got knocked out in the second round of her most recent fight in Melbourne by Holly Holm.
By all accounts, Ronda has taken the loss quite badly and is even claimed to be receiving treatment for depression!
What’s this got to do with business? Well, we load up the cliche machine and let loose! Seriously, there are many lessons to be drawn from this story about winning mindset, handling defeat and failure, preparation and more.
Step into the ring as the guys start swinging with the analogies, anecdotes and (dodgy) gags!
