It happens every time. When someone thinks they are the best, they get their butt kicked, and that is exactly what happened to Rousey. Rousey with her unsportsmanlike character refused to touch gloves with Holly at the beginning of the fight. Guess this might end any talk of Rhonda ever being able to beat Mayweather.

Rousey just endorsed Bernie Sanders... Glad she got her butt whooped.

Styles make fights and everyone can be beaten . She is a fighter with an attitude, which is good in a combat sport. She will be back.As far as her preference in politics. She's a woman! Most Women have a tendency to vote liberal ;)

And Rousey is loosing her fans all over FB as a result of her endorsement of Sanders. Then she was also running around showing skin and discussing her sex life to reporters. She should know that celebrity status never last very long, the public is very fickle and has a short memory.

Take Sandra Bullock, not a fighter but an actor. She has stayed to herself and is very private. She never endorses anything or anybody or discuses politics. So she has stayed in the top five for all these years.

Hopefully she learns something from getting beat and finds some humility.
Exactly what she needs to do. Find some humility that is. Don't really need to carry that smart a** attitude to be a good fighter. Holly has a humbleness about her yet was good enough to beat the tar out of Rousey.

All this same thing is being echoed across the board. One day she endorses commie Sanders and the next she goes down. Karma I guess, a huge percentage of her former fans and supporters were conservatives.
Or middle of the road, how fast does the public turn on you when you open your big mouth?

I've been a UFC fan since UFC 1. I never imagined it would reach the level of popularity it currently has. MMA (or NHB as it was more commonly known back then) was almost banned at one time thanks to people like John Mccain (anyone remember the fighters being arrested after Battlecade Extreme Fightings second event?). Over the years the sport has gone through some major changes. Most of the changes were necessary and helped improve the sport. There have always been a few people with bad attitudes but for the most part MMA and the UFC has been known for good sportsmanship, respect and honor. The majority of the fighters who lack in those areas usually didn't last too long. I've been fortunate enough to meet several UFC fighters and fighters from other promotions over the years and every one has been very courteous and friendly.

The reason for this long winded rant is that IMO there has never been anyone in this sport who needed a lesson in humility more than Rhonda Rousey. Her level of arrogance and disrespect is not what this sport needs. Her poor attitude and the level of disrespect she shows to her opponents makes her come across like a spoiled child (complete with her trademark pouting lip). For the level she has reached, her lack of knowledge of this sport is surprising. I heard an interview where she clamed that she "invented" the arm bar she used on the spot to win a recent fight. Anyone who has trained in this sport has seen arm bars done from every angle, including the one she claimed she invented, many times. I respect her accomplishments but she has been propped up for a long time by Dana White. You could see he was not happy with the result of the fight when he placed the belt on Holly and in his post fight interview.

Its good to see someone take the belt who is humble, respectful and embodies what the sport has (almost) always been about. Holly has far more accomplishments as a fighter then Rhonda but she has not let it go to her head. The fact that Rhonda is backing a socialist was just the icing on the cake in her defeat.

Just goes to show that she is not too smart. You would think that anyone who depends on a fan base for their livelihood (actor, sports star or recording artist) would have enough common sense to keep their political views to themselves so as not to alienate half of their potential fans. The dip wad lead singer of the Dixie Chicks is a prime example of someone who committed occupational suicide by opening her big yap.

Rousey like a lot of "celebrities" made the mistake of thinking fans gave a damn who she endorses.

She fights , that's not a indication of intelligent life. ::)

I saw some replays of the first round, she wasn't doing well then and it got worse. maybe she will learn from this,..... or not.

Absolutely, When some actor or singer starts pushing things on me... I stop patronizing what they do, personal or religious views from public figures, they are NOT my family or friends. I enjoy what they offer, be that music, acting or politically. I dont need or want to know political. Barry does this as well, stepping in to local affairs more than any president I remember. Voicing opinion on small town issues. (Clock kid, shootings etc.) There are folks in position to handle that, keep your pie hole shut and pay attention to running the country. If thats not busy enough.. you aint doing it right. We ALL know thats exactly whats happened.

I have a saying that goes, 5 minutes against a Louisville slugger is better than 5 years of Dr.Phil. Well, looks like Rhonda had her 5 minute's against a slugger, maybe it'll wizen her up. Didn't realize she had such an attitude until seen some video clips of her talking. Main reason I didn't care for Cassius Clay. Never liked his mouth and attitude. As far as Rhonda coming out for Sanders, typical. Mouth engaged, no brain. gypsyman

She was out attacking her fans this morning, saying they have no idea what they are talking about until they too have been in a ring. She just keeps digging in deeper each time she opens her mouth.
One reporter on ESPN said that by the way she is carrying on she sounds more like she is a part of the WWE.

Now that Holly girl has class, she was on ESPN also talking about the fight. She didn't act anything like Rousey.
She sounded like an athlete, saying it was a good fight and Rhonda was a good opponent and a very skilled fighter. And that she had to be in her top form to win the fight and she knew she would need to be going in.

I've heard Holms is a pastors daughter, seems to have had a right upbringing.
Might have stretched the parents a bit for her to have chosen this sport, ha!
I am thankful for her.
Blessings to her

Holly was track and field in school, and participated in the wrestling programs off season. I think she went in prepared where Rousey didn't thinking she had this in the bag. Holly hit her hard and fast early on and it took Rousey by surprise. Holms is a professional where Rousey wasn't, Rhonda was way out of her league.
But this is what she wanted and this is what she got.
