Life gave Ronda Rousey all she could handle when she was born blue and not breathing. Rousey was revived in the operating room, but was later diagnosed with brain damage that hindered her ability to speak coherently until age six.

At 8, Rousey's father took his own life after he'd been paralyzed in a sledding accident and then contracted a rare disease that made recovery impossible.

Mother Ann Maria, who'd taken up judo when her own mother pushed her out the car door at the local YMCA and told her to go join something, made it a requirement that all her four daughters at least try the sport that had empowered her.

Very interesting video. Well done by Hunt, who I've never been a fan of personally.

I like reading these kinds of stories. I know a little about fighting for your life as soon as it starts. I was born with 73% of one kidney and two collapsed lungs. I was 2 1/2 months premature. So I have a soft spot for others who went through similar circumstances
