Former UFC bantamweight queen “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey didn’t have the successful octagon return she’d hoped for at UFC 207 this past December. Rousey was looking to bounce back after being knocked out by Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Australia and regain her 135lb title, but it took the champion Amanda Nunes less than a round to stop Rousey, who suffered her second consecutive defeat inside the octagon.
Following her loss, much of the blame had been put on her choice of coaching staff, but it looks like the former UFC bantamweight champion is now making some coaching changes.
If Ronda was set on retirement (Which BTW, she’s never announced.), would she hire a new world-class coach who trains nothing but the world’s most elite-level athletes? It’s an interesting question to ponder, being as no official retirement has been laid out.
Check out what the bio on Amazon.com had to say about Rousey’s new coach.
