Former UFC champion, Ronda Rousey, is now back in the public eye after her recent loss to Holly Holm who ended her undefeated streak.

TMZ Sports said that "Rowdy" was seen walking along a little girl on Thanksgiving Day and seemed to have fully recovered from the beating she got from Holm last Nov. 15 at UFC 193 in Melbourne.

"And she didn't look the worse for wear. She went out again Friday in L.A. with her pit bull and BF Travis Browne," added the same report.

The same report said that Rousey suffered serious damage to her face after a brutal attack from Holmes.

According to News.com.au, the former UFC champion had to undergo plastic surgery to repair her busted lip.

She was also reportedly issued a 180-day medical suspension by the UFC and asked to present a head CT which revealed the damage she suffered to lift the suspension.

The same report said that Rousey cannot fight for the next 60 days and must avoid "fighting contact" for 45 days.

Despite all the restrictions on her career and movement, Rousey expressed her intent to come back after fully recovering from her devastating loss.

"I just wanted to thank everyone for the love and support. I appreciate the concerns about my health, but I'm fine. As I had mentioned before, I'm going to take a little bit of time, but I'll be back," she mentioned in an Instagram post.

During their match, Yahoo Sports said Holm showcased her aggression to give Rousey a memorable defeat.

It added that Rousey was the aggressive fighter during the beginning of the game, "looking for the right hold and taking head shots along the way." But Holm was able to see an opening 59 seconds after the start of the second round.

The winning fighter threw a kick at Rousey's head after the the latter stumbled during contact. This sent the former undefeated UFC fighter down on the canvas.

According to Sydney Morning Herald, Rousey was taken to the hospital after her knockout loss. The former champ was reportedly depressed about her defeat.

But PMN said that a rematch will happen between the two fighters but it will have to be sidelined for now as both fighters address other priorities at the moment.

"It should happen at the right time. An immediate rematch to cash in just because you can is definitely not the right move," added the same report.
