Ronda Rousey took a serious beating last month in the shocking upset defeat to Holly Holm.
In fact, in an interview with ESPN, Ronda Rousey explained just how bad the injuries were for her. Especially that match-ending kick to the face.
Ronda Rousey admitted that the next few days were really rough, saying, “I kind of just slept a lot and ate fast food. First I was so sick I couldn’t eat anything…Physically, my body was refusing its own failures."
She continued, "It was, like, sick of itself. Expelling itself. Like all the skin came off my face. My whole body flushed it out.”
Ronda Rousey added that it’ll take her “three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact.”
Well, Ronda Rousey better get strong soon, because her anticipated rematch with Holly Holm has just been announced for July 9th at a new arena in Las Vegas.
So, Ronda Rousey is busy mending and it seems she's getting plenty of help from her beau, Travis Browne.
Ronda Rousey was spotted tangled in some serious PDA with Browne on Thursday as the UFC lovebirds left the gym.
But, will love and support be enough to fuel Ronda Rousey into defeating her opponent in July?
It may be that Ronda Rousey only needs her own anger and drive for this match.
Ronda Rousey said to ESPN, “I need to come back. I need to beat this chick. Who knows if I’m going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open again. I have to f—ing do it. It doesn’t matter. I have to do it.”
She added, “I always say you have to be willing to get your heart broken. That’s just what f—ing happens when you try."
She also spoke of her future, saying, "I guess it’s all going to be determined by what happens in the rematch. Everything is going to be determined by that. Either I’ll win and keep going or I won’t and I’ll be done with everything.”
Wow. Those are some serious stakes! What do you think will be the outcome of the rematch between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm?
