My Fight Your Fight Review

Saturday, March 26, 2016

Don't expect a lot of book reviews from this blog, I'm not the type to immerse myself in a book but this made the cut. I love Ronda Rousey. She's fearless, honest, courageous and strong - everything I aspire to be and more. So last year, when she announced that a book about her life was being released, co written with her Maria Burns-Ortiz, you bet your ass I pre-ordered this baby on

This book is not violent, no idea how Wall-mart even thought it was. It's about a girl who had to go through some really shitty situations, and she had to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. It's also about a girl who achieved huge things in her life, but still felt unfulfilled.

My Fight Your Fight, documents her life from birth, up until her winning UFC match in Brazil - which happened in the summer of 2015. As someone who followed her career, the book had a lot of isms - which in the book are sayings from Ronda and her super wise mom Dr.AnnMaria De Mars.

My Fight Your Fight is filled with general life advice.

Because I follow Ronda's career closely, there were a lot of moments in the book where I was like "Oh yeah, I know this", "Saw this on Youtube" and "Oh, that's the guy...". Many of the moments in the book can be easily reference through a couple of Youtube searches, but there were also private moments that was never publicly talked about until this book too. I won't spoil them.

Depending on what's going on with my life, I tend to think back to this book. One example is when things are going horrible, I tell myself "Well, this is just the shitty chapter of my book, things will get better", and I got this from the book (not word for word, but you know what I mean).

I don't know what else to say, this is a really good book. As much as Ronda want's to be besties with the William sisters, I want to be besties with her now too - because she's that relatable. This book motivated me to ride harder, train harder and even gave me a bit of a baddass mindset, because really why shouldn't I feel like I'm the best at what I do?
