How does MMA affect family(spouse, kids etc)
Rosanna: At first my family didn’t support it, but now they do. At least enough where they don’t tell me I could die from brain damage anymore. Sometimes they still try to talk me out of it, but at this point in my life I am my final say. Everyone always likes to give advice for things they have not experienced, condemn what they do not understand, and criticize what they could never do. So while I do listen to advice, I’m learning it is just that. Fighting can take a toll on a relationship though. It takes a good fighter to realize that even though fight camps are hard, you CANNOT take out all your stress on the people you care about. It’s important to remember that.
