During Rousey’s stint with the UFC, De Mars was very vocal about her daughter’s head trainer Edmond Tarverdyan, who she called a “terrible coach” and a bad person. She repeatedly urged her daughter to leave Tarverdyan and get better coaching, but it didn’t happen as she says Rousey is “loyal to a fault.”
Rousey, who is currently signed to WWE, was previously the UFC bantamweight champion from 2012 to 2015, and became one of the biggest mainstream stars in the sport at the time. She eventually suffered back-to-back knockout losses, before making a transition to the world of pro-wrestling.
