Bad week? UFC champ Ronda Rousey suffers first loss of career after endorsing Bernie Sanders

She might have had an excuse if she’d gotten knocked out before the endorsement.

One could say Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ hippie-era, left-wing socialist wimpiness rubbed off on Ultimate Fighting Championship superstar Ronda Rousey. After endorsing the Vermont Independent for president, she got knocked out — for the first time in her career.

During the second round in a match in Melbourne. Australia Sunday, Holly Horn managed to bring the previously unbeatable women’s bantamweight champion down hard with a kick to the head.

The Associated Press reported:

The fight started at a frenetic pace with Holm landing some powerful shots to the unbeaten Rousey’s head, leaving the frustrated champion with a bloodied nose at the end of the first round.

Holm dived on the prone Rousey, delivering several blows to her head before the referee intervened. An ecstatic Holm jumped around the ring as Rousey received medical treatment.

Rousey told Maxim magazine Tuesday that she was placing her support behind Sanders, who’s running for president as a Democrat.

“I’m voting for Bernie Sanders, because he doesn’t take any corporate money,” Rousey said. “I don’t think politicians should be allowed to take money for their campaigns from outside interests.”

Maybe she should have backed a Republican instead — or more likely than not, it was just her turn.
