One of the biggest upsets in sports happened on Saturday night as Ronda Rousey got knocked out by Holly Holm to be crowned the new UFC bantamweight champion.
I’m trying to take it in, but it’s crazy,” were Holm’s first words in her post-fight interview according to NBC Sports, adding later, Everything that we worked on presented itself in the fight. Every kind of grab that she tried to get.
Shockingly Rousey was hit multiple times in the face during the first round. Then in the second Rousey was down for a bit before getting back up and kicked in the neck by Holm. Once that happened, the crowd went wild and Holm couldn’t believe it, including Rousey.
She falls to 12-1 in her MMA career. At 28 years old Rousey wanted to retire undefeated, but that ship sailed with the lost. She expects to fight at UFC 200 in July. All the greats fall down and it’s those that rise to the challenge that separates them from others.
