Ronda Rousey 6 monthsâ€™ suspension will keep her away from Hally Holm rematch for many months
This is going to come as a huge shock to those people who were expecting Ronda Rousey enter octagon within months. A latest report suggests that the former UFC champion may have to remain out of the octagon for a year.
If this is true and Ronda Rousey remain unavailable for the rematch with Holy Holm in the next one year, the Holm may have to fight UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier instead.
While talking with Colin Cowhed, Cormier said that Rousey who lost the belt in the UFC 193 against Holly Holm will not be available for the rematch for as long as one year. She went on to add, â€œHolly Holm looked like a world-beater on Saturdayâ€¦Going forward, they’re talking about an immediate rematch for Ronda Rousey? The improvements Ronda needs to make will take much longer than the six-month break she’s anticipating. She needs a year or so. I would actually not fight her back again, if I was Team Rousey.”
In the meantime Rousey has been given a six months suspension. It seems that the beating Ronda Rousey received from Holly Holm during UFC 139 was more severe than previously thought. Without seriousness of her injuries the UFC would not have placed her on a six-month medical suspension.
There are fears that Rousey has suffered a head injury. According to the New York Post, the medical suspensions are usually run by state athletic commissions that regulate fights. It must be noted that the suspension is very serious in nature. The six-month suspension is the most severe suspension imposed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) for health reasons of fighters. However, Rousey could return to the octagon sooner than expected depending on the results of a CT Scan, which can more easily diagnose problems such as trauma and musculoskeletal disorders. In the first one and half month she will not have to do anything and take lots of rest.
In the meantime UFC boss has said that Randa Rousey will be a complete savage when she makes her comeback. But he didnâ€™t tell as to how long it is going to take.
