“I think it will be a totally different outcome in the rematch that’s for sure.”
Jakes Wood, Max Branning from EastEnders also gave his take on the sport’s most larger than life characters: “I’m a big fan. Especially Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor.

Olympic boxing gold medalist Nicola Adams said: “Ronda Rousey has done massive things for UFC.
“If I turn professional I’d love to be able to do that for professional boxing.”
