It has been established that ex-UFC women's Bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey and President of the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, Dana White, are good friends.
Good friends confide in each other, so it was difficult then for him to see "Rowdy" crumbled by former boxing champion Holly Holm (video) at the UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Australia last month.
However, not all is bad, according to White (via MMAjunkie), who sees a silver lining in the loss.
"It's crazy because you win and lose in the fight game; it happens. It's funny, because we were comparing her to (former boxing champion Mike) Tyson, who had this invincibility. She was a Tyson. And it was never more true than when she lost -- because when she lost, everybody was shocked. One hundred million people were talking about it on social media. And I actually think Ronda Rousey is bigger now after the loss than she was before the fight."
Rest assured, Rousey will be back.
