Summary
Ronda Rousey, the Olympic medalist in judo, reigning UFC women's bantamweight champion, and new Hollywood action hero, charts her difficult path to glory. Rousey's account of the toughest fights of her life -- in and outside the Octagon -- reveals the painful loss of her father when she was eight years old, the intensity of her judo training, her battles with love, her meteoric rise to fame, the secret behind her undefeated UFC record, and what it takes to become the toughest woman on Earth. Rousey shares hard-won lessons on how to be the best at what you do, including how to find fulfillment in the sacrifices, how to turn limitations into opportunities, and how to be the best on your worst day.

Why I fight
Fight night
I was born ready
Winning is the greatest feeling in the world
Everything can change in a split second
Never underestimate an opponent
Losing is one of the most devastating experiences in life
Tragedy precedes success
Do not accept less than what you're capable of
Just because it's a rule doesn't mean it's right
Pain is just one piece of information
Turn limitations into opportunities
Trust in knowledge, not in strength
Know when to move on
Find fulfillment in the sacrifices
You have to be the best on your worst day
No one has the right to beat you
You will never win a fight by running away
Don't rely on others to make your decisions
People around you control your reality
The end of a failed move is always the beginning of the next one
Anything of value has to be earned
Everything is as easy as a decision
When do you cross the magical boundary that stops you from dreaming big?
People appreciate excellence no matter who you are
A loss is still a loss, but it's better to go out in flaming glory
This is my situation, but this isn't my life
You can't rely on just one thing to make you happy
Disregard nonessential information
Relationships that are easily ruined were never worth much
Someone has to be the best in the world, why not you?
Finding a coach is like finding a boyfriend
You will be tested
Champions always do more
Plan out the first exchange
Nothing will ever be perfect
If it was easy, everyone would do it
The only power people have over you is the power you give them
Winning is a habit
I'd rather expose myself willingly than wait in fear for it to happen against my will
Refuse to accept any other reality
The best fighters are patient at the right times
There is a moment in a match where it's there for the taking and it comes down to who wants it most
Fight for every single second
You have to be willing to embarrass yourself
Success is the best revenge
Learn to read the rest beats
Prepare for the perfect opponent
Don't let anyone force you to take a step backward
The answer is: there is no right answer
I have been there
The hardest part is knowing when to walk away
Winning.
