The fight was only 48 seconds long, but Ronda Rousey — the now fallen former champion — took a tremendous beating in a short period of time. The video and the photos show that. Here she is getting hammered and putting up no defense:
Here face was completely distorted when she took this punch:
In the end, she was cut up and in complete shock …
… and dejected
But, despite her own pain, she managed to comfort a distraught fan.
It isn’t that she lost the fight, because even the greatest lose. It’s that she so thoroughly lost, for the second time in a row. Holy Holm beat her so bad she was on medical suspension following their November 2015 bout. The only question left is whether Rousey thinks she has anything left, or whether she’ll pursue her other interests.
