I hate “gotcha” journalism and the paparazzi. I think it’s all a bunch of circling vultures, and it requires neither skill nor talent.

That said, I have an obligation to post this because it’s about our fallen star, Ronda Rousey.

Apparently, TMZ had a camera man waiting at the airport when she arrived from Australia, and Rousey absolutely did not want her battered face shown. Still, she’s dogged by cameras and questions, and she and beau Travis Browne are ushered into an SUV and driven away.

Remember: Rousey has movie roles to worry about and an image to keep. Why would she want to show the world the end result of Saturday’s UFC 193 loss?
