Brock Lesnar understands what Ronda Rousey is going through. And probably that’s why he has a sound advice for Ronda Rousey.
Brock’s message to Ronda comes after Ronda said that she had suicidal thoughts after her UFC 193 loss to Holly Holm.
The once heavyweight champion aptly knows the feeling because he too once was a king only to come crashing down.
Speaking to SportsCenter on Tuesday night, Lesnar said, “I’m a big fan of Ronda’s and have been since the beginning,” reports FOX Sports.
“One thing that I learned and she should have learned a long time ago was that you have to learn how to lose before you can actually win.”
According to Brock, a balance must be maintained between knowing how to win and accepting how to lose as well. This is what helped him in his career in the end: “That was one thing my coach taught me at a very young age because I was a bad loser whenever I’d get beat,” he said.
“You’ve got to be able to get back on the horse and this life is very precious and very short. One fight isn’t going to make or break her career. She’s just got to get back on the horse again and figure it out and she will.”
Such positive words are sure to help Ronda overcome her UFC 193 loss.

Ronda landed herself a cover in the SI swimsuit edition. She wore nothing but body paint for her SI photo shoot. She also hosted the Saturday Night Live and is busy filming Mile 22 and the remake of Road House.
However, Brock believes that Ronda has to focus more on what’s more important for her-films or UFC career.
“When you’re a top athlete, and even people in the movie industry, people that are great at one thing — their work ethic is there,” Lesnar said.
“I had no idea I was going to become UFC heavyweight champion of the world, but that was a goal of mine. As I stepped into the Octagon and faced a number of different foes, I knew that I could be. You just work hard at it. If it’s in your heart and your mind and you work at it and want to do it and believe in yourself, things can happen.”
“She can do whatever she wants to do and I think she’s proven that. I think she’s got a lot on her plate. You can’t be a fighter and be in 10 movies a year. She’s going to have to step back and find out what Ronda wants to do moving forward,” Brock added.
