Former UFC bantamweight champion of the world Ronda Rousey has nothing but vengeance on her mind as she looks to getting back to the octagon and try and get back what she lost.
The whole fraternity of combat sports was shocked after Holly Holm recorded a stunning Knockout (KO) win over Rousey in the main event of UFC 193 last month in Melbourne, Australia, to become the new champion. Holm, who remained a decorated pro boxer before moving on to MMA, landed pin-point jabs, and also displayed her efficiency with bob and weave.
The 34-year-old toyed with Rousey as she bossed the first round and the second round just gave Holly Holm the recognition she needed. The high shin kick to the neck just turned out to be one of the historical moves in the UFC.
In her first ever interview after the much-talked-about MMA fight, Rousey has said that she just can't wait for the rematch. "I need to come back," Rousey said to ESPN. "I need to beat this chick [Holm]. Who knows if I'm going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open again. I have to f**king do it. It doesn't matter. I have to do it.
"I just feel so embarrassed," Rousey continued. "How I fought after that is such an embarrassing representation of myself. I wasn't even f**king there."
The former Olympics gold medallist in judo has been handed a six-month medical suspension by the UFC that could extend to 180 days if she doesn't pass a CT scan. She has also been asked not to have any contact training for at least 45 days.
Rumours are doing the rounds that the rematch between the champion Holly Holm and Ronda Rousey could be scheduled in the MMA promotion's landmark event UFC 200, which will take place in July next year.
