UFC president Dana White heard our pleas for a rematch after Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm‘s epic November brawl in Australia, and the league’s going to make it happen! During an appearance on the Mike & Mike show on Thursday, December 3, Dana said a rematch “makes sense.” You bet it does! Click through to watch Dana’s announcement!
“I think that if we didn’t have a rematch, me and Lorenzo [Fertitta, the UFC CEO] should lose our promoters licenses,” Dana told the Mike & Mike hosts after asked about whether or not Ronda and Holly would face off again. “Yeah, the fight’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but it’s going to happen.” CLICK HERE to watch Dana’s statement!
No way! This is a fight that UFC fans have been dreaming about the second their first match ended! Holly shocked everyone when she KO’d Ronda, the previously undefeated bantamweight champion, in just a matter of minutes! She left UFC 193, held in Melbourne, Australia, the reigning champ, but everyone wanted to see if Ronda could beat her in a second matchup. It looks like that wish is coming true!
“Ronda Rousey has gone undefeated, taken the sport to another level, and was beating the best women in the world in 14 seconds and 30 seconds,” Dana said. “So, she deserves a rematch; Holly agrees that she deserves a rematch, so we’ll figure it out.”
It was previously reported that the UFC 200 event, taking place in Las Vegas in July 2016, would be the likely location of Ronda and Holly’s fight. We’ll just have to wait and see if that happens! “I don’t know what the answer is, why she lost — this woman who was so dominant — other than the fact Holly Holm is for real,” Dana said. “She’s very, very good. Ronda had been a workhorse before that. Maybe everything caught up with her. Maybe she was exhausted. Or maybe Holly Holm was that good.”
