Nick Diaz: Ronda Rousey loss wasn't a big deal, it was a 'simple mistake' by her camp

Matt Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

Guys, can we stop making such a big deal about Ronda Rousey's loss to Holly Holm?

After all, it wasn't that big of a deal. Sure, she got stiffened in front of nearly 60,000 fans inside Etihad Stadium last Saturday night (Nov. 14, 2015) in Australia (see it), while the world was watching, but in the end it was nothing more than a simple mistake by her camp.

Well, that's according to her friend in the 209, UFC welterweight Nick Diaz.

"Sick of people making such a big deal it was a simple mistake," Diaz wrote on Twitter. "You can't be running in on tall people, someone in her camp left that out! If she had done like I did my last fight, they wouldn't have robbed her the way they did me."

A far more subtle critique of her strategy when compared to this:


Rousey vows to return at some point next year and it looks like her first fight back will be a rematch for the 135-pound strap. It will be interesting to see if said return sends her to a new place to train, or if she simply returns to her old stomping grounds to make a few adjustments.
