The Bleacher Report says “The Queen Is Dead” Eras usually end in pieces, crumbling away with the erosion of time. Sometimes it happens over years, but sometimes they are compressed until pressure shatters them. Yet we often feel as though we were caught by surprise due to a failure to see the cracks.
In hindsight, in time, maybe there will be something we can point to in order to understand the demise of Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 on Saturday. Maybe. All we know right now is that the myth is no more. Rousey is no longer unbeatable or unbeaten. Instead, she was dominated, crushed and then rendered unconscious.
There will be no Cris Cyborg superfight. The “Greatest of All Time” labels will go back in their holsters. The Queen is Dead.
