Ronda Rousey’s first KO was more of a shock to Ronda than anyone else. She experienced serious injuries after ceding her throne to Holly Holm, but the psychological effects of the loss were just as deep.
Holly Holm shockingly beat Ronda Rousey in UFC 193, held in Melbourne, Australia on November 14, with a second-round head kick KO. The move injured the reigning bantamweight champion, and left her scarred psychologically, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Though she was rushed to the hospital immediately after the match, what’s hurting most is her pride, at this point.
“Physically she is feeling pretty rough but she will be fine,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The current situation she is dealing with most is that her pride has been shattered.”
After the brutal fight, Ronda had to bear the brunt of verbal attacks from her biggest opponents, who were thrilled that she had finally lost. “Nobody has the right to beat you? Well you just got beat, bitch,” nemesis Miesha Tate told a packed crowd after the defeat. Damn! Beth Correia posted to Instagram, “God is fair she fell. Laughed at me on the floor!? Here!” alongside a picture of Ronda getting slammed. That has to be hard to see.
It’s good to know Ronda’s doing well physically, though! She was rushed to a nearby hospital after exiting the Octagon so quickly, that she wasn’t able to answer questions for the press. While many were worried that Ronda was seriously injured — she was kicked in the face, and more worrisome, the neck, she only suffered a pretty gruesome split lip. One of the toughest chicks around, she can get through it!
This was the first time Ronda had ever lost in her fighting career. While the former Olympian was poised to completely dominate Holly, going into the fight with a 20-1 lead, Holly countered every move with perfection, and defeated the reigning champion in just six minutes — 59 seconds into the second round. Woah!
