Post-Fight Images of a Defeated Ronda Rousey Reveal Just How Shook Up She Was

As you probably have heard, Ronda Rousey lost at UFC 193. And not only did she lose, but she was viciously knocked out by challenger Holly Holm with a devastating head kick in the second round of the championship match.

It was a jarring sight for new MMA fans who tuned in to see Rousey, who has finished foes quickly and cleanly like an assassin, not dominate one more fighter.

Immediately after the loss, the audience didn't get to see much of the fallen champion. UFC cameras followed Holm as she celebrated her win and spoke to commentator Joe Rogan, while Rousey and Co. took the opportunity to head quietly to the back. 

While official UFC footage of Rousey in the fight's aftermath is scarce at this point, Wochit News has posted a video featuring a collage of images of the champion just after the fight. They reveal just how shaken she was. In one image, you can see her coach, Edmond Tarverdyan, hugging Rousey from behind as she sits dazed, bloodied and demoralized after the first defeat of her professional MMA career. In another, she gazes solemnly at the floor as the new champion's hand is raised.

Despite the loss, Rousey's fans can rest easier after she posted on her Instagram that she is fine and will be back. At this time, it is unclear exactly when that return will be.
