Ronda Rousey got TKO'd the f*ck out the other night by Amanda Nunes in 48 seconds in the first round.
In 2015, Rousey was riding high as the undefeated bantamweight (I think) Champion. She was submitting other fighters in the first round with her signature armbar, posing for magazines, lining up movie deals, etc. Then came Holly Holm:
Holm didn't just kick Rousey's ass, she destroyed her, and the myth of Rousey's invincibility along with her. A superior puncher, Holm had Rousey on her heels barely seconds into the first round, and tko'd her 59 seconds into the second round.
Rousey did the usual title loss thing that even the guys do -- she put on about 20 pounds with the milkshake and donut diet, did the rounds of talk shows and magazine interviews speaking out on body shaming and so on. But pretty soon she realized that she only had relevance inside the ring. Holm had lost the title, so I guess she figured she could take out whoever had it by the time she whipped herself back into fighting shape.
Somewhere along the way, she and/or her trainer seemed to forget about teaching her the basics of how to avoid being hit in the face. Because her stand upright and still style of fighting along with what appears to be a glass chin has lead to two devastating losses in a row. The template's out there for any fighter who wants to take her on. I don't see how she can come back from this. Or should, frankly.
Either develop some acting skills or take a look at pro wrestling, 'cause I'm not sure where she can go from here:
