LOS ANGELES — Ronda Rousey’s mom is best known these days as … Ronda Rousey’s mom, an inevitable result of being associated with the woman who is mixed martial arts’ most high-profile fighter, a budding actress and a media sensation.
But there is much more to Dr. AnnMaria De Marsthan being a figure of support behind her fist-flashing, choke-holding, elbow-popping daughter, champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s women’s bantamweight division.
The 57-year-old is a whirlwind of bluntness and intelligence, a former world judo champion, the holder of an MBA and a PhD in Educational Psychology, and the founder of Seven Generation Games, a company seeking to improve the math skills of under-served schoolchildren, especially those in Native American communities.
