Don’t hold back Ronda! The poor guy looked like he wanted to go home…
For those who have been keenly following mixed martial arts over the past six months, the story of Ronda Rousey has changed themes many times. Back when the hype machine was warming up for UFC 193, ‘Rowdy’ was being pegged for a top spot in MMA history.
Little did she know, Rousey would become a victim of the most brutal highlight reel knockout in women’s mixed martial arts history. Holly Holm was the massive underdog that got the job done, winning in dominant fashion too.

So the question now is will Rousey ever be the same? Miesha Tate took over the top spot by choking Holm out cold at UFC 196 on March 5, and sets hersef up for the trilogy bout with ‘Rowdy’ in doing so.

Just for the sake of it:
So who would you pick in the trilogy fight between Tate and Rousey? It’s certainly an intriguing prospect given how red hot Tate looked at UFC 196, and of course with the blockbuster UFC 200 just around the corner there’s a great venue for that fight.
Although Tate’s camp has already started avoiding the subject of Rousey. Check out this recent interview snippet:
