Rousey seemed unbeatable coming into the fight, but she perhaps was too confident in her striking skills, as she was much slower to the punch than Holm and seemed to get rattled when her face started to take some serious punishment. Holm was able to avoid an arm bar attempt when the two went to the ground and her quickness kept Rousey from grappling with her. The big question now is how will Rousey respond to this loss and game plan for the rematch? If she enters the fight thinking she can win with striking, the same result can be expected. If she finds ways to get the fight to the ground, then she has a much better chance.
