Holm: Rematch with Rousey ‘makes sense for sure’
Holly Holm is looking at the possibility of a rematch against Ronda Rousey, whom she had just knocked out in the main event of UFC 193 in what has been labelled as the biggest upset in UFC history.
Holm went from a heavy underdog to a champion after a devastating head kick floored the erstwhile undefeated champion Rousey and shocked the world.
“I think a rematch makes sense for sure,” Holm said in the post-fight conference as posted on Fox Sports Australia. “I don’t look at this belt and I think ‘I’ve made it.’”
Rousey was the heavy favorite to win the match but Holm surprised Rousey early with her striking even taking down the wrestler in the first round.
Holm ended it all with a devastating left kick to the jaw in the 4:08 mark of the second round.
“I’ve been on the losing side before and wanted to avenge my loss,” Holm said. “A rematch is kind of an unspoken common sense to me.”
