In victory or defeat, Ronda Rousey is always newsworthy.
The former UFC bantamweight champion is on the cover of ESPN Magazine’s Ideas of the Year issue, just released.
The article is one of the first features to address Ronda’s reaction to the knock-out loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193, on November 15.
“I’m really f***** sad!” summed up Rousey when asked about her feelings regarding the outcome of the fight and the loss of the title.
She also talked about the injuries she sustained during the fight, mainly to her lips and jaw:”It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact.”
If this timeline is accurate, Dana White’s plans of having the Holm vs. Rousey rematch at UFC 200, next July, will be hard to come true.
Despite the setback, Ronda is not changing her ways of voicing her opinions freely: “Most people get scared away from having an opinion. It’s not so much my opinions everybody relates to, it’s that I don’t care about being punished for it,” says Rousey on the interview to ESPN Magazine’s Ramona Shelburne.
