When an athlete as dominant as Ronda Rousey loses as suddenly and as violently as she did to Holly Holm on Saturday in the main event of UFC 193, the finger-pointing begins instantly.
Holm had a brilliant game plan against Rousey, the part-time movie star and full-time superstar, and executed it to perfection, knocking her out with a kick to the head at 59 seconds of the second round in front of a UFC-record crowd of 56,214 at Etihad Stadium.
