If you thought Ronda Rousey was going to go out quietly into the night after getting her world rocked by Holly Holm, you were almost certainly wrong. She may have lost that battle, but the war is long. Ronda is still an elite fighter who deserves the respect she's gained over her career so far.

Sure, she took her first L, but that doesn't mean she won't a) get back in the Octagon, b) schedule a rematch with Holly Holm, and c) still go about her business per usual.

As for C, here's an example of her doing just that and looking perfectly fine, in my opinion.

She was caught by the paparazzi in a photo with her boyfriend, looking no worse for wear. In fact, it looks like her face has healed quite a bit!

You may recall she didn't want to be seen at LAX in the immediate time after the fight...

There was also this happy family photo of her looking thoroughly chipper and happy to celebrate... even if many MMA fans potentially don't feel she deserves that luxury after suffering her defeat.

All in all, I think Ronda is going to come back better than ever, and a rivalry that's developing between her and Holly Holm is only good for the sport. They're both great women with different styles, competing on the same stage, and I think we should celebrate that.

Now let's get these two back in the ring!
