LISTEN: Ronda Rousey wanted to “get back in there” after regaining consciousness

"I'm fine!"

Darragh Murphy

What a fall from grace.

On Friday night, Ronda Rousey was on top of the world – unbeatable, invincible, guaranteed to win.

On Saturday night, she was unconscious.

The former UFC bantamweight champion was brutally knocked out by the left high kick of Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 193 which was the first loss of Rousey’s professional career.

Nobody could believe that the 1/14 favourite had been so unceremoniously dethroned and the first comments Rousey made after regaining consciousness show just how stunned she was left by the striking exhibition put on by Holm.

“I’m fine,” Rousey stressed before claiming “I want to get back in there.”

That probably wouldn’t have been the best idea, to be fair.
