What’s Next for Ronda Rousey?

UFC 193 What Next

 

In what Joe Rogan has called “The Greatest Upset in MMA”, you know, since the last greatest upset in MMA (Chris Weidman vs Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman vs Anderson Silva 2, Chris Weizmann vs anyone…I like Weidman but people really need to give him way more credit than he’s getting.) “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holly Holm did what many did not expect her to do and that was to beat, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Most Sportscasters are no different than political pundits, they boast about one competitor/candidate until proven wrong, then turn on a dime and praise the new person quick like they were always on that person’s side.

All congratulations go to Holm. All the people that said she wouldn’t have a chance had no clue that this is her EIGHTEENTH WORLD TITLE!  Sixteen in Boxing and two in MMA (she was called up by the UFC after winning the Legacy FC Bantamweight Championship).

Holm should go out and celebrate, she deserves it, but all eyes were on Rousey following the fight. She was rushed to the hospital with what appeared to be a broken jaw (which we wish her a speedy recovery).

The real question for “The Rowdy One” is, what’s next?

1) Is it time to find a new coach? 

It’s been no secret that mama bear and judoka, Dr. AnnaMaria De Mars has stated publicly that she detests Ronda’s coach, Edmond Tarverdyan, saying in meaner terms that her daughter stays with him out of superstition and that he got lucky with her walking into his gym.

Is this the moment where Rousey listens to her mother and finds a new gym? Was Tarverdyan really only riding her coattails or did he truly help the former champion along the way?

In between rounds you heard Tarverdyan telling Rousey she was doing great, even though her face was bloodied from keeping her hands down and consistently walking into the Southpaw’s left-cross and right-hook.

He never once told Rousey how to change her game plan or how to slip the combinations Holm was throwing.

2) What happens now with Cris Cyborg?

For the past two years, it had been a, “will they, won’t they,” build up. Dana White accused Tito Ortiz of killing the potential fight because of the press conference he held to make the fight at Featherweight (145 lbs) and the now Invicta champion is trying to negotiate a Catchweight fight at 140 lbs.

I agreed that if Cyborg wanted to fight Rousey it had to be at Bantamweight (135 lbs) because she was coming to the UFC to fight the champion, but now what? The title is in Holm’s hands and there is no reason for that stipulation any longer.

3) What happens to Miesha Tate’s number one contender ranking?

Tate has been Rousey’s chief rival since Strikeforce and the queen of the number ones since her second loss to the then champion, working her way back up quickly to title contention.

Does Tate, who was over looked for the then, number eight ranked contender get a her long awaited title shot or does Rousey get a rematch right away to restore her glory?

As Rousey will need as little as a month and a half to recover from a broken jaw and Tate no longer the gatekeeper for the champion, who gets the next shot?

I would like to see Tate get that chance for next summer against her co-star in the up coming movie Fight Valley (also co-starring Cris Cyborg), then when Rousey is healthy and sorted out the, “what next?” question to get shot at the winner of that fight.

4) Does Rousey pull a Gina Carano and retire?

In 2009, after Carano lost the Strikeforce title to Cyborg, and a stint on the revived American Gladiators, Gina “Crush” Carano left the world of Combat Sports for Tinsel Town and hasn’t looked back.

Could Rousey decide the same thing? She’s been in movies like The Expendables 3 and followed Carano into the Fast & Furious franchise with Furious 7 and Entourage.

She’s had a Wrestlemania moment with her co-star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and had talked about becoming a WWE Diva.

This could easily be the way to go for the former Olympian and UFC Champion.

Whatever Rousey decides in the next few months, the most important this is a speedy recovery and a restoration of her physical and mental health.

It’s hard to go from King/Queen of the Castle to the hospital. That takes a major toll on your psyche; but we also know Rousey is strong enough to do it.

In the meantime, congratulations to new UFC Bantamweight Champion, Holly Holm we’ll wait to see if Holm/Rousey 2 happens in 2016.
