And what did you think?
I’d love to hear from you guys and girls, particularly if it was your first time watching a UFC event.
I headed down to Melbourne to watch it live and it seems like it was this fairly huge cultural event. When I got to the airport to fly home I had forgotten to take off my press pass and random strangers were asking me about the fight.
I got into the office the next day and people who had never spoken to me about MMA before were asking me about the fight.
And it was a crazy fight. Almost certainly the greatest upset in UFC history, to the point where I watched Ronda lose in front of me and genuinely didn’t believe it was real.
— Holly was well prepared. To deal with both the pressure and judo throws of Ronda Rousey. She defended the armbar well.
— Ronda thought she could box with Holly. She couldn’t. A bit of hubris there. By the time she realised that she was already exhausted and her takedowns had become telegraphed.
— Ronda’s mystique is gone, but the rematch is still going to be insane.
— Ronda has bad knees. I wonder if that makes it difficult for Ronda to train for anything longer than a three or four minute match?
What did you guys and girls think of the fight?
