I woke up this morning to the news that Holly Holm took down Ronda Rousey. You can watch the stunning 2nd-round KO on MMA Wild: Holly Holm Knocks Out Ronda Rousey. Ronda has taken the world by storm not only because of her top-rank fighting ability but also because she is very beautiful and a capable actress. I don’t think this is the end by far for Rousey. Her options for the future are pretty great.
And as anyone who has followed professional boxing knows, you can still earn a lot of money from sponsorships after you lose a belt. Some of the biggest fighting champs in the world have become entrepreneurs (“George Foreman” anyone?) and starred in their own television commercials.
Holm’s career is now on the ascendant but who knows what the future will bring?
Anyway, Ronda will still be America’s girl to me. And I pity the mugger who tries to rob her in a dark alley.
