Ariel Helwani's MMA Show: UFC 243, Ronda Rousey's Fall

The last time the UFC hosted an event in Melbourne, Ronda Rousey suffered the biggest defeat of her career, a defeat she's never quite recovered from. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, who covered Rousey extensively during her rise and fall, tells Ariel about the painful days she spent with Rousey following the devastating loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 (22:53). But before that, ESPN's Marc Raimondi talks about a huge night in professional wrestling and Jarod Cannonier's impressive performance last weekend. NewYorkRic also joins from Melbourne to talk about the upcoming UFC 243 card, the overall interest in the slate of fights headlined by Robert Whittaker and Israel Adesanya, and the nastiest food you've ever heard of (1:18:22).
