Laila Ali on Ronda Rousey: A Real Champ Wouldn’t Get Beat Like That! (WATCH)

*Over the past year or two, Ronda Rousey has talked a lot of ish about other boxing folks like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Laila Aliwho has basically ignored her … publicly.

Well, now that Rousey has suffered her infamous ass-whoopin‘ that happened over the weekend at the hands of Holly Holm, Ali has changed her tune and spoke out about her nemesis to a TMZ videographer.

“In order to be the best in the world, you definitely don’t EVER get beat up like that in your prime, period.”

Gosh darn it, don’t hold back, Laila!  Yep, that pretty much says it all. Laila went on to say that she hopes Ronda turns down a rematch … ’cause Holly Holm will do a repeat ass-kickin’ all over again.

Hmm, you get the feeling Laila doesn’t particularly care for Ronda?

  1. I don’t think Holy Holms should be recognized as a true champion.
    Understandably, this is an extremely brutal and barbaric sport, but the woman was out cold before even hitting her head on the floor, so what’s the point in pummeling her in the face as her lifeless body lay on the floor?

    And the kick wasn’t really all that. Her back was turned.
    up until that point, Rhonda Rousey was her own worst enemy. She was too reckless in her pursuit of Holmes. In the rematch, she got bide her time to where she can get close enough to utilize her superior judo skills, but it’s suicide to keep going after a former boxing and kick boxing fighter like that.

    • I guess you could ask the same question of Rousey when, after the ear of one of her opponents was left hanging by a thread, Ms. Rousey continued to batter that ear trying her best to knock it off. What the point of that was?

  2. It’s MMA, and just like any fighting sport, its risky, rough, and sometimes brutal. In a bang bang moment like that you go until the ref jumps in. Mrs. Holms isn’t a doctor or a referee, she is a fighter. She didn’t break any rules, she fought a clean, tough fight, and won convincingly. If you let up before the finish, that opponent could recover and leave you on your back.

    Mrs. Holmes earned my respect even further with her post fight interviews and demeanor. Classy, humble, and appreciative, rare but awesome qualities that I wish more champions had. Quite the opposite of her opponent.

    Final point, Ronda Rousey didn’t “beat herself” she fought a boxer who was quicker to the punch, hit harder, and was simply prepared for whatever Ms. Rousey could come with. The unfortunate news (for Ms. Rousey) she won’t be able to learn how to outbox a boxing champion in 6 months or a year. A rematch could prove another painful lesson.
