Ronda Rousey Wants A Rematch At UFC 200

Ronda Rousey Wants A Rematch At UFC 200

( 4UMF NEWS ) Ronda Rousey Wants A Rematch At UFC 200:

Ronda Rousey is slowly emerging back in the public eye and sharing information about her plans for the future.

Rousey (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) has remained largely in hiding since she lost the UFC women’s bantamweight title to Holly Holm (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) via vicious second-round knockout at UFC 193 in November.

The ex-champ did not show her face for several weeks, but she recently gave an in-depth interview with “ESPN The Magazine” in which she detailed the painful fallout from the first defeat of her MMA career.

Rousey is clearly still reeling from the shocking and brutal defeat, but she’s doing her best to get back to her normal life. TMZ caught up with “Rowdy” as she was leaving her California home for the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, which she promised to attend earlier this year, and she expressed her desire for a rematch with Holm at UFC 200.

“It’s what I want,” Rousey said. “It’s up to the UFC, and it’s up to her camp. So, we’ll see what happens.”

Rousey’s next fight was targeted for UFC 200 even prior to the loss to Holm. Although she said it could take up to six months to recover physically from the damage Holm dished out, including a few dislodged teeth, it seems the July mega-event is still the plan for Rousey to return to the octagon.

Following the loss, there was quickly some debate about whether Rousey should take on a different opponent to rebuild her confidence prior a rematch with Holm, whose rep said she would happily fight 135-pound contender Miesha Tate in the interim, but UFC President Dana White said it would unwise to do anything other than give Rousey an immediate shot at redemption.

As the fighter largely responsible for bringing women’s fighting into the UFC, Rousey certainly earned the right to a rematch if she wants it. Rousey made it clear she does, and now it’s just a matter of determining the logistics for the event, which is expected to be one of the biggest in MMA history.

“I need to come back,” Rousey said. “I need to beat this chick. Who knows if I’m going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open again? I have to (expletive) do it. It doesn’t matter. I have to do it.”
