After the fight, Ronda revealed just how she dominated Bethe. “Instead of forcing a clinch, I planned to overwhelm her striking first so she would want to clinch,” Ronda said. “And that’s exactly what happened.”
Ronda had dedicated the fight to the late wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who passed away on July 31. Ronda shares the same “Rowdy” nickname as Roddy, so his death had a major impact on her. She paid tribute to Roddy on Instagram with a sweet message that read, ““Thank you for the name…. And so much more…. Will do it justice and do you proud tomorrow…. This one’s for you Roddy….”
