Big news for Ronda Rousey as UFC bosses make major announcement

RONDA Rousey went down hard in her bruising first-ever defeat, but her luck could be about to change.

Because the California cage fighter will get a rematch against Holly Holm, UFC bosses have now confirmed.

The MMA legend has kept a low profile since losing the bantamweight title to Holly Holm in a shock loss last month.

And with the new champ widely acclaimed as the best female fighter in the world, a rematch has the potential to be explosive.

Now UFC boss Dana White has pledged “that fight’s going to happen” – saying he and chairman Lorenzo Fertitta have their jobs riding on it.

White said: “I think that if we didn’t make the rematch, me and Lorenzo should probably lose our promoter’s licence.”

He also paid tribute to Rousey, telling ESPN: “[She] has gone undefeated and taken the sport to another level.

“[She] was beating the best women in the world in 14 seconds or 30 seconds so she deserves a rematch.

“Holly agrees she deserves a rematch and we’ll figure it out.”

In the wake of her defeat, Rousey said she would “take a little bit of time” out but warned “I’ll be back”.

The 28-year-old had bristled with confidence before the bout, branding her opponent a “fake cheap-shotting b****”.

But the brawler babe lost via knockout early in the second round at the UFC 193 event.
