After that massive loss against Holly Holm, will Ronda Rousey rise back up or will she lose again for the second time around. UFC fans all over the world are excited because Dana White, UFC President, just announced the rematch between Holm and Rousey on July 19, 2016 for UFC 200 in Las Vegas.
“The plan to have a rematch is currently slated for UFC 200, which would be in Las Vegas on July 9th,” according to the source’s exclusive interview with HollywoodLife. “Dana White wants that event to be huge, and is already setting up to have Holly and Ronda face off again then,” the source added.
Rousey just recently arrived in L.A. from the fight and she was obviously ashamed to face the people. Rousey had her face covered with a pillow as she arrived in L.A.X. with only strands of her hair for other people to see. She was even wearing a hoodie if that is not enough.
Let’s hope that the news of their rematch will enliven her from her current state. And let’s hope that that would be enough to retrieve her former status in the UFC arena.
If Rousey was experiencing some major depression from her loss, Holm on the other hand is enjoying her current state. Holm must have felt great for she was the first one who was able to overpower Rousey. The once undefeated Bantamweight champion has finally lost for all the world to see.
When asked about their rematch during her interview with the LA Times, Holm responded with enthusiasm.
“There’s always a good confidence knowing you did it once,” Holm said. “A rematch is different. I had a brutal knockout [loss in a 2011 boxing match] and wanted that rematch so bad, and I avenged my loss,” she added.
“So going into a rematch, there’s a confidence for the winner of the first fight, but the other is coming with a whole different heart and a whole different mind-set. It’s a scarier fight. I’d train as hard or not harder,” Holly added.
This would be a much anticipated fight. This is the fight that would decide everything. Will Holm still prevail? Or will Rousey steal the title?
