Fallout: The Real Reasons Ronda Rousey Lost At UFC 207

She got hit in the face. That would probably be the meathead’s quick and easy version of what went wrong for former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey when she faced off against the new champ Amanda Nunes. That certainly isn’t an incorrect statement by any means, but it’s not really telling the full story of proceedings. Ronda Rousey, her coach Edmond Tarverdyan, and the UFC made some pretty big gaffs leading up to UFC 207.

Amanda Nunes vs Ronda Rousey: 5 Things To Keep An Eye On

Since then it’s been radio silence on the “Rowdy” front and as such fans have been waiting with baited breath to see how Rousey would rebound from her first loss.

New Ronda Rousey Training Footage. Do You See Improvement?

Whenever new training footage emerges of a high profile fighter, there will always be those who believe the slightest of changes to their routine means that they have improved or added something new to their arsenal. Conor McGregor is one such individual. If he adds anything, anything at all to his training camp then you can bet his rabid fans will be coming out of the woodwork to discuss how his new handstand push up method will turn him into an entirely different animal. Another high profile fighter who can relate to this issue is Ronda Rousey.

Society tends to deride those who remain defiant even after a decisive and fair defeat. Someone who’s beaten and fails or refuses to accept this is looked at with pity, even anger. George Carlin already eloquently expressed a counter to this view, and so I’d like to highlight the inverse of this phenomenon, which can actually be a severe problem. I speak, of course, of the sore winner.

Generally (and, ok, a bit trivially) speaking, victory is power. When winners, specifically in sports, and even more specifically in MMA, cross a certain line of decency and abuse that power, we encounter what is perhaps the most unsportsmanlike behavior of all. There aren’t necessarily scientific tests for determining sore winner status in MMA, but here’s one fairly reliable-looking indicator: the winning fighter using their victory to violate the losing fighter’s dignity in some way.

That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with trash talk before a fight, or in its resumption once the immediate post-fight haze has passed. Conor McGregor and Chael Sonnen, two prodigious talkers of trash, pour industrial amounts of verbal acid onto their opponents before and after fights, but they always seem to have a sense of respect for the man they’ve just pummeled in the immediate moments following a win.

Ronda Rousey Returns…to Acting, Inks Three Movie Deal With Lifetime


(He was an immortal witch hunter with a heart of gold. She was anything but Expendable. This summer, Vin Diesel and Ronday Rousey star in “The Last Do-Nothing-Bitch Hunter.”)

With each passing day, it seems that the likelihood of seeing Ronda Rousey‘s return to octagon diminishes exponentially. She may be back to eating solid foods once again, but even some five months removed from her knockout loss to Holly Holm, Rousey is still very much struggling to come to terms with her future in the sport.

“I’m still grieving the person that could have won it all. But I have to live up to the fact that I’m not her,” said Rousey in an interview as part of her shoot for the Time 100. But with no date set for her return, it leaves one to wonder just what career path we’ll see Rousey take in the meantime.

The obvious answer seems to be “acting.” Even if the former champion doesn’t exactly have the range of a Helen Mirren or a Topanga from Boy Meets World, Rousey’s got a handful of feature film roles under her belt and an SNL hosting gig to boot, so it’s not like she’s a rookie in the art of playing make believe for lots and lots of money. The woman is feministic superhero, for crying out loud. Her built-in audience is literally 50% of humanity!

What I’m getting at is, maybe the news that Rousey has signed a three movie deal with the Lifetime network shouldn’t be all that strange to learn. But it is. It soooo is, you guys.
