BREAKING News Update: Holly Holm Linked To Steroids, UFC Title Win Now Under Scrutiny
First Came the The Predictions:
It was rather an unnerving moment. Ronda Rousey was being interviewed by late night’s Jimmy Fallon just a few nights before the now famous match, when she accidentally predicted her own defeat, as she described to Fallon how she imagined the match might proceed. It was an eerie foretelling of just about EXACTLY what took place in the ring, when she finally fought challenger Holly Holm on November 15th. Have a listen:
Former UFC bantamweight fighting champion and ‘lady fighting legend’ Ronda Rousey is apparently a boxer that haters love to hate. Last Saturday night Nov. 14th [ billed as Nov 15th in Australia, as it was the next day there] in Melbourne Australia, title match challenger and former boxing champion Holly Holm made history when she knocked out formerly undefeated 12-0 UFC bantamweight fighting champion Ronda Rousey with a devastating high kick to her neck, which knocked Ronda fully unconscious for about a minute. Rousey fell hard to the matte on her left shoulder, and her boxing legend was altered forever in that instant: she was undefeated no more.
[ Full video of the title fight appears at the end of this report. ]
Holms flew across the ring and pounced, determined to finish the job, and began pummeling Ronda in the face with her fists before the referee pulled her off of the unconscious fighter. Since that moment, every human being who ever resented or hated Ronda Rousey for any reason [ Winners are almost universally reviled by those who can never achieve, only ridicule those who can ] has weighed in on a truly shameful post-defeat ‘Ronda Rousey hatefest’ which is all over the internet.Having finally had enough of it, I am writing this article to show my support for Ms. Rousey, who remains one of the finest female athletes in America – EVER – and I am also writing to let readers know that when she DOES finally come back, this woman will be amazing on a whole new level, swinging round the curve into an escalated fighting gear we didn’t know she had. Champions are ultimately proven once and for all by how they respond to a defeat. Sometimes something has to happen to a boxer which will distill their resolve, re-focus their determination to conquer not just the sport, but to make their place in it secure for the pages of history. Having fought her way into the UFC recordbooks with an earlier 12-0 record over the past few years, [ before Holly Holm] I just don’t see Ronda Rousey as being the kind of woman, let alone the kind of fighter, who would throw in the towel on her own athletic career after one loss, even if it was the loss that stunned the world of women’s boxing. That’s just not Ronda.
Like Taylor loves to say: “….Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate…” – but I guarantee you, Ms. Rousey will have the last word when she regroups for a re-match. #TheRematchWillBeHUGE alright. Rousey fans: keep the faith. Don’t turn your back on this woman now, because now is when she needs her fan base to support her more than ever.
Below are clips and photos from the pre-fight and the astounding, somewhat hard to watch match. Rousey was actually taken to a local hospital for a full medical check-up after the match, as she had lost consciousness with the head/neck kick that won the fight for Holly Holm. Holly Holm was utterly stunned herself when she knocked Ronda out and won the title. In post fight interviews she was humble, tearful and gracious in victory, proving that she is indeed, a preacher’s daughter through and through.
Can’t get enough ‘Ronda Rousey’ news? Here’s the whole banana.
