    Four days after Ronda Rousey’s highly anticipated comeback went exactly the way she had not planned, fight fans and insiders are still discussing what went wrong for the 29-year-old. How did the fighter, who had 411 days to shore up her striking skills, allow women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes to land 27 punches and beat her in a technical knockout 48 seconds into the fight?

    LAS VEGAS – Ronda Rousey was once again pummeled by a striker and lost her second consecutive bout. The former women’s bantamweight champion was completely outclassed in the striking game by Amanda Nunes, who stopped Rousey at 48 seconds of the first round to retain her women’s bantamweight championship in the main event of UFC 207 at T-Mobile Arena. Nunes landed a big right just seconds into the fight that clearly hurt Rousey, who was fighting for the first time since a stunning defeat at the hands of Holly Holm on Nov. 14, 2015. Rousey tried to throw punches with...

    UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor announced his retirement from mixed-martial arts on Twitter Tuesday. The announcement follows McGregor witnessing last week a Brazilian mixed-martial artist take a beating in the cage that led to his death. The 27-year-old posting the retirement tweet while in Iceland training struck some as a strange setting to call it quits, leading to speculation of a publicity stunt or a call of a UFC bluff on money.

Trump even made personal appearances at fighting events hosted at Trump properties. "You will never hear me say a negative thing about Donald Trump," White told the TMZ reporters. When asked if White will vote for Trump he simply replied, "Donald will get my vote."

    Thousands lined the streets of Downtown Albuquerque on Sunday to celebrate hometown hero Holly Holm, the Duke City native who took down Ronda Rousey in November to claim the UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship. New Mexico waited patiently in the weeks after the fight to welcome home "The Preacher's Daughter," who upset Rousey with a second-round knockout in Australia on Nov. 14 and toured about the country following the win. And at Sunday's parade in her honor, it was clear that the post-fight excitement among Burquenos hadn't waned in the slightest. Fans showed up in droves, many wearing Holm T-shirts or...

    As Bernie Sanders prepares to enter the primary-season Octagon against arch-rival Hillary Clinton, he can take some comfort in the fact that the world's most popular MMA fighter, Ronda Rousey, has come out swinging in his corner. In a recent interview with Maxim, the undefeated UFC champion, who defends her bantamweight belt against Holly Holm on Saturday, pledged her support to the progressive Vermont Senator, who is the only "democratic socialist" in Congress. And she's hoping her political muscle serves as an electoral armbar that will send him all the way to the White House. "I'm voting for Bernie Sanders,...

    Ultimate Fighting Championship Star Ronda Rousey improved her undefeated record with an amazing 30-second victory over Bethe Correia Saturday night, but “social justice” warriors were quick to remind Twitter users that she’s not PC-approved. Focusing in on comments Rousey made about a transgender fighter participating in female divisions, the PC police flocked to Twitter in an effort to steal the spotlight from her impressive win. In 2014, Rousey expressed concern that athletes who were born male might have an unfair advantage in women’s divisions after Fallon Fox, a fellow MMA fighter, came out as transgender. “She can try hormones, chop...

But what few people realize is that pretty much every second leading up to the actual win is uncomfortable, painful, and impossibly daunting—physically and mentally. Most people focus on the wrong thing: They focus on the result, not the process. The process is the sacrifice; it is all the hard parts—the sweat, the pain, the tears, the losses. You make the sacrifices anyway. You learn to enjoy them, or at least embrace them. In the end, it is the sacrifices that must fulfill you.” – Ronda Rousey...
