Ronda Rousey is slowly showing her face back in public and talking about what she plans to do after the embarrassing loss to Holly Holm. She has remained in hiding since she lost the UFC bantamweight title in a second round knockout in November.

She basically hid her face after she talked a lot of smack talk and then lost. However, she did give an interview to "ESPN The Magazine" following the first defeat of her MMA career. While it is obvious that she is still reeling from the brutal defeat, she is going to get back in the ring and back to normal. However, it was TMZ that got the most out of her as she left her California home for a Marine Corps Birthday Ball that she promised she would go to. In that interview, she expressed her desire for a rematch:

“It’s what I want,” Rousey said. “It’s up to the UFC, and it’s up to her camp. So, we’ll see what happens.”

Rousey said that it could take up to six months to recover from what Holm did at the match, including dislodging her teeth. However, her new goal is to return in July UFC 200.

“I need to come back,” Rousey said. “I need to beat this chick. Who knows if I’m going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open again? I have to (expletive) do it. It doesn’t matter. I have to do it.”

Holm has said that she is more than willing to have a rematch at the time and place of Rousey's choosing.
