The kick heard round the world. Holly Holm, anywhere from a 5:1 to a 15:1 underdog this week, absolutely destroyed Ronda Rousey in TWO rounds. Rousey, who has been known to end fights within seconds looked absolutely overmatched. Immediately people are comparing it to Buster Douglas-Tyson, Evander Holyfield-Tyson, Rams-Patriots, etc. but that’s a little bit of a stretch. Speaking of fighting and Tyson, ESPN’s 30-for-30 just released one this week called “Chasing Tyson” which follows the story of Holyfield and Tyson and is one of their best ever so check that out.
Back to Rousey, you can’t help but think the media overhyped her beyond oblivion. She has absolutely dismantled opponents left and right but it’s often due to her experience and incredible submission holds. She has become a legend with a similar ora of a Tyson or Mayweather where people are trying to guess how many seconds it will take for a KO. All I know is that when this rematch between Rousey and Holm happens, it will certainly be one of the highest watched events in recent history. No doubt in my mind Rousey goes on a streak of wins and these two will set up an epic rematch (Tyson/Holyfield style). Here are the clips from the absolutely devastating knockout… Congrats to Holly Holm
