Can Ronda Rousey make a comeback? | The Tylt
Mixed martial artist champion Ronda Rousey seemed invincible—until her amazing winning streak was snapped by a shocking upset at the hands of former world boxing champ Holly Holm late last year. The defeat sent Rousey into seclusion and a downward spiral so bad she contemplated suicide. But 13 months later, she's getting back in the ring to battle Amanda Nunes in Las Vegas. Can she make a comeback? What do you think?🏅
Can Ronda Rousey make a comeback?
Holly Holm, whose 2015 knockout of Rousey was the biggest upset in UFC history, thinks it's all up to Ronda:
“Anything can happen,” Holm told The Post. “I do think it comes down to what Ronda shows up. Is she going to get hit and question herself? Or is she going to get hit and think, ‘Nope not tonight, not again.’ That’s going to be the moment.”
But Amanda Nunes told Rolling Stone she's coming for Rousey big time:
"Ronda Rousey is the biggest name and I want to make a statement," Nunes said. "I've been training for this girl my whole career in the UFC. I have a chance to defend my belt against her and show everybody the real champion."
Clearly, Rousey's been training for this moment.
But Rousey hasn't fought in more than 400 days. Experts say if she loses the bout, her UFC career is over. There is so much more on the line for Rousey than there is for her challenger. Can she perform under this kind of pressure?
