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