Ronda Rousey vs Holly Holm rematch to wait for a few months

It is tough to praise one’s opponent, especially the one whom you have beaten just now and there are chances in case of a rematch the title may slip out of your hands. Nonetheless Holly Holm seems to have been made from an altogether different stuff.

She has a real huge heart. She didn’t feel antipathy towards her tough rival Ronda Rousey, whom she had defeated just a couple of days ago in Melbourne, and came forward to defend her courage and proven record. She stepped in to defend a fellow MMA fighter who was unnecessarily being attacked by people like Donald Trump and Lady Gaga besides many others. This is the same rival who didn’t want to touch her gloves before the fight began this past Saturday.

To be fair not many MMA fans had thought that the UFC 139 will be so unpredictable and Rousey will be on the mat. Her fans were hoping that the fight may not go beyond a minute as Rousey, a ferocious fighter, always beat her opponents within one minutes, with a few exception.

And now when the fans were hoping that the ex champ will make a spectacular return to the octagon, they are told she may not fight for the next six months. The medical suspension for six months is a long time indeed. 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.

Nonetheless there is a way out too. 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 didn’t tell as to how long it is going to take.

In the meantime Rousey seems to be avoiding the media. While she arrived at the Los Angeles airport from Melbourne, Australia, she not just didn’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 Rousey’s condition since her second-round knockout Saturday. To be true, since her loss she hasn’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.
