Was the Ronda Rousey Fight Rigged?
Nothing like a good conspiracy theory to start the day! No, you haven’t stumbled into InfoWars, we’re talking about Ronda Rousey getting her … head … kicked in by Holly Holm.
A WWE “wrestler” turned podcaster named “Taz” is fronting a theory that Rousey threw the fight. She’s apparently going to do a remake of “Roadhouse” and getting massacred in the Holm fight, Taz says, is just good publicity for the launch of her film career.
“You do not want your champion sitting home or making a movie, ‘Roadhouse 2′ or whatever Rousey’s going to do, or just needs a personal break, which she’s earned. This girl’s earned it. But you don’t want that person sitting home for five, six, seven months with that championship. It’s bad for business. Take the belt off her.”
“If you look at the actual KO – now, she did get nailed, Rousey, with several shots before the finish of the fight,” he said.
“Nothing that was like, ‘Oh my god,’ but she got popped a few times. But if you look at the actual knockout, as Rousey, she went for kind of a lazy punch or something – not lazy but she kind of missed – and as she spun to turn around her back was kind of turned to Holm. And as she slowly turned, a high round kick, I believe it was the left foot, or left leg of Holm, catches Rousey, drops Rousey, and then Holm grounds and pounds for three shots – boom, boom, boom. Ref gets in the middle, fight’s over, new champion Holly Holm.”
Let’s take a look at the knockout.
Personally I think Taz has taken one too many to the head. What do you think? Did Ronda throw the fight? Or is Taz an idiot?
