Ronda Rousey made one simple mistake in her crushing defeat to Holly Holm, says Nick Diaz

This single mistake cost her badly...


The Ronda Rousey haters have come out in force since Holly Holm usurped her UFC throne with that thunderous head kick knockout.

However, fan favourite and former welterweight contender Nick Diaz is sticking with his friend.

He reckons all ‘Rowdy’ did wrong in the fight was make a ‘simple mistake’ due to a poor game plan. Diaz believes that Rousey’s decision to aggressively seek out the clinch from the beginning against a taller opponent ultimately caused her downfall.

Diaz also claimed that if Rousey replicated his strategy for his superfight against Anderson Silva she would have retained the UFC women’s bantamweight belt.

The original result of the Diaz fight was a unanimous decision win for The Spider, but that has since been changed to a No Contest after Silva tested positive for anabolic steroids in a pre-fight drugs test.
