How Rousey fans can comfort themselves post-UFC 193
-Don’t re-watch Rousey vs Holm unless you’re a glutton for punishment.
-Re-watch UFC 157 Rousey vs Carmouche. Watch her make history as the first female champion. Remember there would be no women’s division without Ronda. No one can take that from her.
-Re-watch Strikeforce Tate vs Rousey and Rousey vs Tate 2 at UFC 168. Watch smug Miesha get her arm dislocated and imagine it’s punishment for her bitchy tweets post-UFC 193.
-Re-watch any of Rousey vs McMann at UFC 170, Rousey vs Davis at UFC 175, Rousey vs Zingano at UFC 184 or Rousey vs Correia at UFC 190.
-Send some social media positivity to Ronda or mail her something nice at:
Glendale Fighting Club
601 South Brand Boulevard
Glendale, CA 91204, United States
Let her know how much fan support she still has.
-Watch Ronda’s Trip to the 209 series on youtube. She is still in her Strikeforce pre-fame days and fans really get a chance to see her fight for respect and her hilarious, chill personality come through. Start from Ep 2 when she meets the legendary Diaz brothers at Caesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and stays at their house in Lodi, Califonia. Ep 3 is great- Nate Diaz receives his Black belt and after watching Ronda out-grapple guys in the gym, Nick Diaz rolls with her himself. Whenever they grapple it’s an amazing master class in technique. Ep 4 is hilarious; after Ronda helps the Diaz brothers with some judo technique, they read fan mail and everyone does apple cider vinegar shots and the videographer, Layzie the Savage, pukes while everyone laughs at him. In Ep 5 Ronda goes mountain biking for the first time with the Diaz brothers and can barely walk up a flight of stairs afterwards. Highlight is when she judo throws every guy in the gym for a free t-shirt.
-Watch Matt Serra beat GSP at UFC 69. Watch TJ Dillashaw beat Renan
Barao at UFC 173. Watch Frankie Edgar beat BJ Penn at UFC 112. Watch Nick Diaz beat Robbie Lawler at UFC 47. Watch
Chris Weidman beat Anderson Silva at UFC 162. Rousey vs Holm was not the first upset in UFC history and it will not be the last. Take comfort in the fact the very nature of fighting is unpredictable.
-Read My Fight / Your Fight
-Watch the Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage. Plan to go see Roadhouse.
-Eat some hot wings
-Mark UFC 200 on your calendars. Rousey vs Holm 2 is widely rumored to be the main event. It is unlikely either Holm or Rousey will fight in the next 7 months to build even more interest for the rematch in July 2016. Have no doubts that Ronda will rise to the occasion.
