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. 

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.

He still has to be given his due: so far he's backed up everything he's said and just as with Mayweather, whose career/persona Conor is really blatantly trying to ape, there is both a large fanbase who go for that style of self promotion as well as a large base of fight fans who will pay money for the off chance that they see him get KOed. 

Not a fan of that type of fighter, but to each his own.

Is Rousey going to have to beat Holmes in a rematch to "come back" ? That may be a tough chore for her-



She deserved to lose. No modesty or class at all. Maybe shame will teach her some humility.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rousey took some time off from competition; she was planning on this anyway from what I gathered. Of course that was running the assumption she would still have her title. 

I'm not sure I see the value in a tune up fight for Rousey prior to the rematch, but depending upon the timing, Holm may end up defending her title for the first time against someone else. That could feasibly lead to an even bigger build up than an immediate rematch if Holm executes a dominant title defense.

As for an immediate rematch; Rousey really didn't do anything right in this fight whereas Holm had a perfect game plan that she performed almost flawlessly. Her team picked up on every little flaw Rousey has shown in her previous fights and planned accordingly. So Rousey would have to change just about everything with regard to her gameplan and approach, and yes; it would be a tall order. 



damn thats one hell of a kick!

So is there enough time to remove her from the cover of the new UFC game? :^)

Pettis' Wheaties box was still on shelves after losing his title.

If the UFC has any say with EA and they they do, they should put Rousey V Holm on the cover for the anticipated rematch.



That's actually pretty good news, Rousey isn't exactly a humble and decent fighter and spends a lot of time talking about how other girls are bad role models.
She needed this, and the sport need it as well, everyone needs to learn how to lose.



I'm shocked
