Bernard Hopkins wants Ronda Rousey to ‘correct mistakes’ and ‘get revenge’

Boxing legend Bernard Hopkins offered his thoughts on the UFC 193 main event between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm.

Last weekend, the UFC took part in a sudden story line plot twist when massive underdog Holly Holm knocked out Ronda Rousey, the promotion's biggest superstar, with a second round head kick.

In fact, the win was so dominant that few expect Rousey to avenge the loss if she returns immediately after filming Roadhouse. She was outclassed in striking and was outmuscled in grappling exchanges, which limited her game and forced her to panic and fight with instinct instead of intelligence.

Boxing legend Bernard Hopkins, however, is one of the few who is confident that Rousey can return to her former glory.

"Bounce back, get yourself together, look at your mistakes, correct your mistakes, get revenge," Hopkins told

He also revealed that he believed Rousey will defeat Holm to avenge her loss in the rematch.
