Ronda Rousey has a lot of drama surrounding her so it’s about time that she got some positive PR. When Vin Diesel revealed that Ronda Rousey is coaching his daughter in Judo lessons, all of Hollywood as well as UFC world flipped out!
According to People , “Vin Diesel revealed that when it comes to his daughter Hania Riley, he spared no expense in finding her a self-defense teacher.”
He said, “Because of her ‘Auntie’ Ronda Rousey, [Hania] is now an orange belt with stripes in judo… I made a decision early on that I was going to do everything in my power to empower her to handle it herself.”
And who better to teach women how to stand up for herself than Rowdy Ronda Rousey?
The fact that Ronda Rousey’s mom has been kicking up dust about her daughter’s MMA coach Edmond Tarverdyan meant that the UFC champion had to do some damage control. With the scathing remark that her mom AnnMaria said about her coach, Ronda Rousey may have to make some hard choices in terms of choosing her team.
But meanwhile, the UFC champion has been focusing on her next fight against Holly Holm. Nothing like the gym to really forget about the problems of everyday life. And with coaching Vin Diesel’s daughter, there really isn’t a free moment in Ronda’s day!
According to Fox Sports , Ronda’s mom spoke out about the coach that has been with her daughter from the beginning of her MMA career. She said, “If you read in Ronda’s book… [Tarverdyan] didn’t give her the time of day. And he has had that exact same pattern with many women in the gym and I have seen it with my own eyes, where they train there and it’s basically a waste of their time. And they’re talked to in a way that just makes my jaw drop.”
She added that “All I did was say publicly what people have been whispering for years, but no one had the balls to speak up because Edmond is like that gatekeeper to Ronda.”
With a bomb like that dropped on coach Edmond Tarverdyan, Ronda might have to choose between her mom and her coach pretty soon.
Ronda Rousey has risen to such heights in MMA that she has gotten very busy swatting away people. Let’s hope that she won’t ignore comments from her mom!
