Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has gone dark following her legendary knockout loss at the hands — and foot — of Holly Holm last month, the very first of her career.
Rousey really never had any bright spots of her own throughout the fight, with Holm dominating the first round and then delivering a kick to the head for the KO in the second.
As a result, Holm has been on the opposite end of the spectrum, as she’s seemingly plastered onto everyone’s television screen.
Finally though, Rousey has come out from the shadows to appear on the cover of ESPN The Magazine. A snippet of her interview was released on People.com, and in it Rousey acknowledges that the defeat still bothers her.
“(I’m) really f-cking sad,” Rousey told the magazine. “It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact.”
That would put the timeline for a rematch to take place in July, at UFC 200.
Even so, UFC President Dana White has said that Rousey doesn’t have to rush herself which could push the fight back.
