UFC President Dana White confirmed the unfortunate report the post-fight press conference, which Rousey was clearly unable to attend.
"Her lip was split in half in half right, so they had to sew it, took her and transported her," White said.
The former pound-for-pound star came into her meeting with "Preacher's Daughter" all wound up, but found herself in dire straights over the course of their six-minute exchange.Holm, an ex-boxing champion, executed a sound gameplan predicated on kicks and working different angles.
The Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA product struck Rousey several times with left hands and even landed a takedown of her own. Rousey proceeded to launch herself into harms way often in round one, paying the price for it by eating stinging shots, while her hands laid low.
Holm then put a definitive stamp on the bout, starching Rousey with a left high kick and hammer fists for the monumental upset victory.
