Holly Holm shocked the world on Saturday night with a surprising win over Ronda Rousey the undefeated UFC women’s champ. This fight exposed Rousey’s average boxing skills to Holm’s fast hands and left her open to get dazed enough to take that nasty kick to the neck.
Rousey has too many skills to make this a horrible setback. She does have some work to do and should have taken Holm to the ground ASAP on Saturday when it was obvious to us her boxing was superior. I am no expert by the way, and know being in the ring is waaaaaaaay different than my armchair analysis but that’s how I saw it.
Rousey will be back with a vengeance and I think this just was a “poke the bear” moment in her career. Her return will see her hungrier and meaner than ever.
