UFC badboy Nick Diaz took to Twitter to defend his friend Ronda Rousey after her shocking loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 on Nov. 14. The skilled MMA fighter said Ronda made just one ‘simple mistake’ that could happen to anyone. Here’s the scoop.
Popular UFC fighter Nick Diaz, 32, doesn’t think 28-year-old Ronda Rousey‘s loss to Holly Holm, 34, is such a “big deal.” He thinks if not for a “simple mistake,” Ronda would have won. The MMA champ is sick of people ragging on his friend for losing. Here’s what he’s saying about it on Twitter.
Nick is sick and tired of people hating on his buddy Ronda for losing just one match, and he’s going on the attack. The MMA fighter knows what it’s like to have people root against you – he’s currently serving a five year suspension from the UFC for failing his third drug test. But he doesn’t think Ronda’s earned all the hate. As a matter of fact, he only thinks she made one simple mistake – and blames it on her team!
Nick thinks someone else is responsible for the loss, because coaches should have advised Ronda not to get close to someone as tall as Holly. He says he has a better plan – the one he used himself in his match against Anderson Silva in Jan. 2015. Interestingly, Nick lost that fight. But he thinks if Ronda used the same technique, the judges would have decided in her favor.
Ronda is definitely hurting after her Nov. 14 loss. The insanely skilled MMA fighter has never lost a match before, but her undefeated title ended with a brutal kick to the neck. Her previous competitors are having a field day on Twitter, basking in her failure. No wonder her friend Nick is so heated! We’re glad someone is defending her, because we certainly want to see a rematch and Ronda might need some help getting her confidence back!
