Ronda Rousey will get another chance to fight Holly Holm in a rematch, UFC President Dana White said. Boxing fans were left in complete shock Sunday after Rousey lost her UFC193 fight to Holm, who delivered a knockout kick to Rousey’s head before pummeling her with punches to the face on the mat.
The knockout in Melbourne marked Rousey's first MMA career loss. According to TMZ, White said Rousey is "bummed" and "depressed" over the loss and doesn't want to talk about it. “The last thing a fighter wants to do is talk about a fight when they lose,” he said. "There hasn't been much talking."
E! Online reported the 28-year-old fighter is currently in an Australian hospital, where she's expected to undergo a procedure to fix a "very big gash" down the middle of her lip. White said Rousey did not suffer a concussion from the blow to her head, and promised the two fighters will get in the ring again.
"There will definitely be a rematch. It’s the fight that makes sense," White told TMZ.
Rousey has stayed off social media in the hours since the fight, but she did do a lot of trash talking before getting in the ring with Holm.
On Saturday, she took to Instagram to bash Holm writing an expletive-filled rant: “Fake a-- cheap shotting fake respect fake humility b----. ‘preacher’s daughter’ my a--. I see through your fake sweet act now -- you’re getting you’re a-- kicked tomorrow, and I’m really going to enjoy the beating I give you.”
