Holly Holm knocked out Ronda Rousey, and now Holm is largely forgotten (thanks to Miesha Tate).
Rousey, meanwhile, has since hosted an episode of “Saturday Night Live”, and has now signed a contract with the female-centric Lifetime Network for three projects that are somehow relative to her life (or message, or whatever).
As per the entertainment industry media outlet Deadline:
Rousey has signed a three-picture movie deal to bring stories that reflect her passions about empowerment to the screen, according to the network.
Hey, good for her. Rousey has done a lot for the sport, and she deserves a break from getting punched in the face.
But I can’t help but think that each of these successes outside of MMA bring Rousey further and further away from the cage.
And that would be sad.
