Ronda Rousey reveals original plan to beat Holly Holm before KO I was out on my feet from the beginning

Inaugural bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey has revealed she has a specific gameplan in place to beat Holly Holm during their infamous 2014 title fight in Australia, before claiming she was “out on my [her] feet” from the opening exchange.

Rousey, a former undisputed bantamweight champion under the banner of the UFC and Strikeforce promotions, headlined a return ‘Downunder’ for the organization back in 2014 in a title defense against boxing Hall of Fame star, Holm.

And seeing her perfect run of professional victories halted following twelve consecutive victories, Rousey would then go on to suffer a dominant first round TKO defeat to former two-weight champion, Amanda Nunes the following year in her return to the Octagon.

And speaking during a recent Q&A session as she releases a memoir on her career in combat sports, Rousey revealed she had a specific gameplan in place to beat Albuquerque striker, Holm – before she was rocked on the feet. 

“The (Holly) Holm fight, I didn’t really get to start my process because I literally just got hit right away, and it knocked loose all my bottom teeth and I was out on my feet from the very beginning,” Ronda Rousey said. “So there wasn’t like that same kind of process of what I usually have.”

“My process was usually, I would plan out the first exchange, and everything from then on out would be an improvisation, within the range of what I trained for specifically for that person.”
