Less than 24 hours after the “head kick heard ’round the world,” Ronda Rousey had spoken. The former ) UFC bantamweight champ took to Instagram to tell fans she was “fine.”
We know that Rousey had mentioned this time off before, because of wanting to work on various movies and a few other projects. The fact that it came after the loss may be a shock to fans though..
Both Dana White and newly crowned champ Holly Holm have already spoken about a possible rematch.
“Obviously we don’t make fights the night of the fight, but the rematch makes a lot of sense,” White said at the post-fight press conference. “I think the rematch is what people would want to see. [Holm’s victory] changes a lot of things; the Cyborg fight, some other stuff we were working on.”
“I think a rematch makes sense for sure. I’ve been on a losing side of a fight and I wanted the rematch; I wanted to avenge my loss,” Holm said. “With a champion like Ronda who has gone out of her way, above and beyond to do great things, absolutely she deserves a rematch.
For those of you wondering about Rousey’s health, all the injures were minor. She’s going to be back and better than ever… we’re just not sure when.
