Ronda Rousey loss aftermath: Holly Holm simply excited about rematch
No one thought that Ronda Rousey will be beaten by Holly Holm in the UFC 139. She has been such a great and formidable fighter that not many anticipated her losing the title match.
But even the best have some bad days. And last Saturday was not obviously the greatest day of her career. She not just lost, but lost badly going down in the second round to a mighty kick by Holly Holm.
The kick was powerful. But equally powerful was the beating she recieved from Holm in the first round. The injuries prompted UFC bosses to transport her straight to a Melbourne hospital where she recieved stitches on her lips.
Latest reports suggest that Rouseyâ€™s suspension is for 180 days, unless she is cleared by a head CT scan. She is not to fight again for 60 days and not to have contact for 45, Fox Sports reports.
While she arrived at the Los Angeles airport from Melbourne, Australia, she not just didnâ€™t talk to the media, but tried to hide herself in many clothes and then behind a pillow that she was carrying. Very little is known of Rouseyâ€™s condition since her second-round knockout Saturday. To be true, since her loss she hasnâ€™t talked to media even once. She did not meet reporters and was taken to a Melbourne, Australia, hospital to have plastic surgery for a split lip. She did not suffer a head injury, UFC President Dana White said.
The way she tried to keep herself behind clothes, goggles and a pillow proves that damage to her face is extensive. Rousey returned to the U.S. on Tuesday, but kept her face well hidden behind a hoodie and a pillow as TMZ Sports attempted to interview her at Los Angeles International Airport.
