Frye: Ronda Rousey will never fight again because she can't draw fans after getting her ass kicked by Holly Holm

I see Don's brain is still Frye'd.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey went from the biggest star in mixed martial arts (MMA) to a washed-up nobody with zero fans. That's according to combat sports (cough) "legend" Don Frye, who shoots down these tentative plans.

"The Predator," for reasons not yet explained, vents to Submission Radio:

"No, she's not coming back. She'll never fight again. She used to be able to draw fans, now she can't. Everybody's seen through her. If she wants to come back, she should do her rematch against Holly Holm. And then if you beat Holly, then you can have a title match. But if you get your ass kicked like that, you don't deserve a title match."

In other words, SHUT THE HELL UP.

Rousey was stripped of her strap by way of Holly Holm head kick way back at UFC 193 in late 2015. Her knockout loss to "The Preacher's Daughter" ended her unbeaten streak, as well as her spot at the top of the UFC mountain. While she's been gone, the 135-pound title has been passed around like a hot potato and Holm went on to lose two straight.

What a difference a year makes.
