My prediction is the cover will be both of them. When that game is released they will likely be hyping a rematch.

The Holmes girl deserves it - seems she beat Rousey very convincingly

No doubt, but Rousey is a big draw AND was the definitive champion for a couple years. She will get an immediate rematch is she wants it.

The same thing is happening for Cain Valasquez. Both did shitty ads together, now both gotta get their belts back.

Yea she'll probably get an immediate rematch. If she wants it. She wanted to take a break after this fight. I knew Holm stood a chance but I did not expect this kind of domination. Holms foot work was amazing and was one of the big things she needed to clean up in her game and she did it. She already had all the other tools.

Ronda wasn't arrogant. She was honest. When you are on top you can't be honest or you are seen as arrogant. Everyone looses sometime, no big deal. It was gonna happen eventually.

“Simple minds have always confused great honesty with great rudeness.” - Sherlock Holmes, Elementary (2013).

"Did you guys expected some actual rational fact-based reasoning? should already know I'm all about BS and fraudulence." - FunFan, VGchartz (2016)

Yeah she's supposed to be getting an immediate rematch but I don't know why. It wasn't a close fight. She was dominated.

Hope she learns some humility now. :)

Next, let's see fucking Conor McGregor lose, please happen.

Second this. 

I'm not embarrassed to say that it would give me no small amount of pleasure to see Aldo kick Conor's head off.

it happens. this should've happen to Floyd Mayweather too.

lmao, that cover pick had bad timing.

I guess Miesha Tate's chances for another shot at Ronda became a little more likely, unless she does retire.

Ronda: 'Miesha's best chances at a title shot is to wait for me to retire'

This is good for the narratives.

I guess Holly is going to be in Fast & Furious 9 now...or was it 8? I lost count.

Ronda got to appeal to the general public because of her relative beauty, overconfidence and success on the octagon. She was/is some phenomenon that got to trascend beyond MMA, I don't see that happening with Holm. It isn't like whoever is champion gets contracts for films and stuff.

I wonder what impact, if any, this defeat will generate in the public eyes. She may still remain popular, but of course she won't be seen as the "unbeatable force".

No more "would Ronda beat Maywheather in a fight" headlines. Actually, the woman beater may be typing a tweet about Ronda's loss as I write this.

The ESPN cover reminds me of Pettis being the first MMA fighter on a Wheaties box. Dos Anjos thrashed him almost before the box was on store shelves. 

Rousey is in a very similar position to Gina Carano at this point in her career. Built up tremendously, plenty of press, fashion photo shoots, hype, film aspirations, etc. And then the hype train was derailed when Cris Cyborg demolished her. She effectively retired after that fight.

Nope. Too well protected. Say what you will about Mayweather, his "Money Team" is no hyperbole; they have done their job well in preserving his record. 

Close to half of the people buying PPVs were probably doing so on the fool's chance of seeing him KOed.

That Conor guy. He's can be somewhat entertaining and that is part of his draw but he can be such an asshole. Like when he was referring to the guys he would train for TUF and he said that the guys he would train would be nothing to him because his friends are the only ones he cares for or something.

Then he warmed up to them and it is different now, but that is part of what pisses me off about him, the bullshit he talks.

He's a Trashcan Santa Claus.

Good. She's an arrogant wench.
