Ronda Rousey Fallout – Holly Holm is a true Champion

After perhaps the biggest upset in UFC history, the sports world is still reeling. Ronda Rousey, a transcendent athletic star, lost to a relative unknown – and absolutely no one saw it coming. Even Vegas had no clue. Rousey was one of the biggest odds on favorites in recent memory.
Holly Holms stepped up in a big way, turning in the performance of a lifetime. She revealed much more power than she’d displayed in any of her previous UFC fights, sending Ronda Rousey to the mat early. The social media world immediately cascaded into utter shock. After all the trash-talking, the weigh-in drama, this was how it ended. The seemingly unbeatable “Baddest Woman on the Planet” had been knocked out.

Highlights from the fight:

The UFC Women’s Bantamweight Division has a new champion!

Holly Holm- respect for the new champion

After the fight, Holly Holm proved to be both a gracious and worthy champion. During the single greatest moment of her life, she took a minute to make sure Ronda Rousey was alright. Even though Ronda had refused to tap gloves beforehand, Holly didn’t gloat or taunt her.

That’s what a true champion is supposed to look like.

Landin “Shredder” Murphy has been athletic since early age, quickly developing a propensity for both baseball and swimming. One of Landin’s fondest memories was his youth baseball team narrowly missing out on the opportunity to play in the Little League World Series Final. Unfortunately, during high school Landin was forced to forget his originally preferred sports as a freak basketball injury nearly ended his life. All prospects for Division I sports scholarships evaporated. Despite this set back, Landin focused his energies in new modes, becoming an All-State musician, avid sports journalist and by"Bodybuilding" to stimulate and heal his body. In an effort to assist others, Landin is currently pursuing Pre-Medical, Dosimetry and Sports Medicine degrees.
