UFC President Dana White Vows Ronda Rousey Will Bounce Back From Loss (VIDEO)
UFC president Dana White took to the press to offer his thoughts on the future of 2015’s biggest sports star, Ronda Rousey, who suffered her first loss at UFC 193 in November in a bantamweight title fight against fellow undefeated fighter Holly Holm.
In an interview with TMZ yesterday, White vowed that Rousey would bounce back from her loss. When asked if Rousey was overwhelmed heading into her now iconic fight with Holm, White defended his fighter while also praising her resiliency (and her acting talent):
“I don’t think so. She’s one of the mentally strongest people I’ve ever met in my life and err, you know, just wasn’t her night – she’ll bounce back. She killed it on Saturday Night Live, though.”
Although it was initially expected that Holm would face Rousey in an immediate rematch from their UFC 193 bantamweight title fight, that match is on the back burner for now, as Rousey is taking time to recuperate (and possibly pursue her acting career). In the meantime, Holm will defend her bantamweight title against Meisha Tate at UFC 196 in March.
