Ronda Rousey had what has to go down as the worst moment of her Mixed Martial Arts career at the UFC 193 event in December.
"Rowdy" lost her UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship to Holly Holm in the second round of the fight after taking a brutal kick to the face that ended up breaking her jaw and putting her in a hospital for a decent amount of time.
Rousey hasn't really been seen since the loss, but her coach has now come out and said that the 29-year-old wants to come back better than ever.

After meeting with Rousey and her coaches in Los Angeles, trainer and nutritionist Mike Dolce said that the fierce fighter is on a mission to once again cement her status as the best female mixed martial artist alive, past or present.
"We're planning Ronda's comeback and her world domination," Dolce said in an interview with MMAjunkie.
"That's really what it's about. The last loss Ronda suffered was in the 2008 Olympics, where she battled back and won a bronze medal. She has been undefeated since, all the way to November 2015."
Ronda isn't expected to fight again until the end of the year, with Dana White recently revealing that they have tentatively pencilled in a Rousey return for either November or December, depending on how quickly she can recover and get back in fighting shape.
Seeing as Rousey's biggest challenge for a while was biting into an apple, you can see why she has been ruled out of a fight at the UFC 200 super show in July, which will instead see the new champion, Miesha Tate, defend the strap against Amanda Nunes.
While Rousey is still going to be filming for a film or two before she fight again, Dolce affirmed that she is very much focused on getting her title back.
"She's extremely refocused, and the team is definitely moving forward," Dolce said. "We're all rowing in the right direction, and now it's just a matter of sitting back and waiting for the right time for her to step back in again."
