If you caught the UFC yesterday, you would have been majorly surprised by the two results.
Holly Holm, who famously beat the then-undefeated champion Ronda Rousey was beaten in a rear naked choke that caused her to go unconscious in the octagon.
Everyone at home couldn’t help but but wonder, “what does Ronda Rousey think?” – and the commentators were tapping into the same mindset, even saying “what would be going through Ronda Rousey’s head right now…”
Well, according to a report on MMA Junkie, UFC President Dana White knows exactly what Ronda Rousey thinks about the bout.
“I think that Ronda now will fight Miesha Tate for the title,” White told ESPN’s “SportsCenter” after UFC 196. “That’s what’s going to happen. That’s what I said before this fight even happened.”
However, according to White, Rousey didn’t even WATCH the fight.
Instead, she spent the evening at a professional wrestling event, but exchanged a few text messages with White.
“I texted Ronda, and Ronda wasn’t even watching the fight,” White said. “I texted Ronda, and she said, ‘What happened?’ I said, ‘Miesha just choked her unconscious.’
And she said, ‘Well, it looks like I got to get back to work.’
I don’t know what that means – if that means acting or fighting.
“She’s scheduled to not come back until October or November, but that doesn’t mean I can’t ask. I can ask. Ronda Rousey has worked very hard for three-and-a-half years in this company and believe me, she did anything that was asked of her and went above and beyond the call of duty. If she wants to stay out until October, she can do that.”
Tate now has the option to have a rematch with Holm – or take on Rousey, but she reportedly has no preference.
