At light night’s highly-anticipated premiere of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion donned a full Storm Troopers outfit (costume on the far left)–mask and all.
Rousey will need more than a silly costume to hide her embarrassing defeat at the hands of Holly Holm. She’ll need a new fighting style and drive. Two things no costume can boost.
Being a poet, I’m trying to find the metaphor in this. Former star turned villain, hunts after new champion golden girl. It sounds good, but doesn’t really work with the Storm Trooper get up.
It’s a little like Anakin Skywalker’s story. Though A-Sky became the ultimate arch villain: Darth Vader. A Storm Trooper was no big deal really. Just a silly guy in a ridiculous outfit shooting faux-lasers at Jedi’.
Maybe that’s how defeated Rousey really feels. Can’t pick herself up enough to even think about challenging her defeater.
