After losing terribly in the UFC women’s bantamweight title against Holly Holm on Nov. 15, Ronda Rousey is ready to strike back. Speaking for the first time after the mortifying loss, she finally admitted the embarrassment she faced following her defeat to Holly Holm.
“If I’m going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open again – I have to do it,” Rousey said.
“I just feel so embarrassed. How I fought after that is such an embarrassing representation of myself. I wasn’t even f***ing there.”
Rousey also said she is desperate to make a promising comeback as soon as she gets a chance.
“I need to come back. I need to beat this chick. Who knows if I’m going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open again. I have to f***ing do it. It doesn’t matter. I have to do it.”
Rousey was declared favorite by many to beat Holm in the match. So when Rousey went down just 64 seconds into the match, it was an extremely unexpected one-sided bout.
It was Rousey’s first defeat in her career and she admitted it didn’t go the way she had imagined.
“I always think I can lose all of them. I’m the only one that’s scared when I walk in there. I’m always f***ing scared.”
When asked if she is willing to fight back, she replied firmly, “Of course. What else am I going to f***ing do?”
Rousey is clearly ready to make a strong comeback. Her next bout will no doubt leave fans on the edge of the seats to see if "Rowdy Ronda" has what it takes.
