Ronda Rousey’s mother, Dr. AnnMaria De Mars, has never been short on words.


The opinionated doctor, and first American world champion judoka, is largely credited with molding her daughter into the champion we see today.
Rousey’s official head coach, however, is Edmond Tarverdyan of the Glendale Fight Club in Los Angeles. The 28-year-old champion has been with coach Tarverdyan ever since turning pro back in 2010.
Some think that Tarverdyan hit the lottery when Rousey decided to walk in his doors. After all, Rousey was an athletic specimen the likes of which the sport of MMA had never seen before.
Now, it’s one thing to have to hear that from fans and pundits, but what happens when your mother says your trainer is a hack, that you don’t need him, and the only reason you have him around is because you're superstitious?
Well, we are about to find out.

Wow.
No matter your opinion on Rousey, Tarverdyan or De Mars, the video is jolting.
De Mars likens Rousey’s relationship to Tarverdyan akin to a pitcher who threw a no-hitter and then keeps the same ‘red underwear’ on because he feels he can’t win without it.
She says Tarverdyan is a terrible coach and he hit the lottery when Rousey walked in his door. And her daughter – for whatever reason – thinks she needs him.
Rousey is currently coming off a wildly successful, million-buy PPV at UFC 190 against Bethe Correia. She is riding an unprecedented wave of success, both in the sport of MMA, and in Hollywood.
Now, her mother just dropped this bombshell on her team at Glendale Fight Club and specifically, Edmond Tarverdyan.
Rousey meets undefeated Holly Holm on Nov. 15 at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia. It will be her biggest fight to date, and is expected to break the UFC’s all-time attendance record inside Melbourne’s 70,000+ seat Etihad Stadium.
Heading into the fight with Holm, not only will Rousey have an entire sport on her back, she’s now going to be forced to answer questions about how she intends to get her mother off her coach's back.
After an unprecedented rise to superstardom over the last 12 months, this surely wasn’t the way “Rowdy” intended to close out 2015.
