    Is that her excuse?
    She says she was knocked out the first time she got hit, she couldn't really see and it was hard to figure out how far Holly was from her.

    I rewatched the fight and that didn't look like the case

    So she got beat? And considers herself undefeated? And the host fees sorry for Holm? I can't wait for this rematch.

    Excuse? So he excuse for losing was that she was knocked out? I don't know if I would count that as an excuse.

    Probably the head kick and hammer fists that made her entire memory of the fight hazy.

    Her perception of minutes seems to be knocked silly as well.

    Nothing she says inspires confidence that she can change anything in a rematch.

    I think she tried to correlate that with how horrible her striking looked against Holly as well. Her timing being off and whiffing punches.

    I have no doubt that the strike hurt her, and probably affected the rest of the fight to at least some degree.

    I hope she isn't using it to ignore the flaws in her game though. Holly Holm was clearly superior in more than one area. She's clearly in another league as an all-round striker, and she developed a great strategy for avoiding Ronda, the cage, and her takedown attempts. If Ronda wants to come back she's gonna have to be honest with herself, or the same thing is very likely to happen again.

    Here's what I said after her loss in November:

    I hope Ronda Rousey honestly assesses herself to understand her flaws, so she can attempt to improve as a fighter. If she attributes her failure in the fight entirely to getting rocked early, then she's in denial and a future rematch won't be good for her.

    If she gets that badly hurt from the first strike, her chin/recovery sounds like shit.

    So she is still undefeated because she got knocked out

    It's in the book
    Holly got some good shots starting at 1:16 of the first that Ronda might have been talking about, unless she's only recalling that punch before the big kick. But Ronda still rocked Holly at :54. I think a rematch is winnable for Ronda, Holly was running a lot and Ronda was chasing. Ronda fought in a hurry like she was having her paycheck deducted with every second that passed.

    Watching the fight live, about 2 minutes into it Ronda looked off before the beatdown started to get ugly.
    I'm impressed that she wants the fight again. War Ronda

    You Sir are classless. Definitely not something to joke about, as much as I detest RRR. Can't wait for your ban.

    I think there is a good chance Randa wins a rematch. I know that's unpopular but don't say I didn't tell ya so if the arm bar queen remembers what she is best at.

    That's fucked up.
    I can't wait for her retirement story to hit the web, but suicide because I don't care for someone I never met and has not effected my life one bit seems very idiotic and childish
