Firas Zahabi defends Edmond Tarverdyan

Following the [first professional loss of Ronda Rousey’s career at UFC 193 to Holly Holm in 2015](https://www.bjpenn…

When Rousey returned to the Octagon at UFC 207, many were wondering whether the former champ would step into the Octagon and showcase a new striking skillset. When Rousey ultimately stepped into the Octagon with women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, it took just 48 seconds for Nunes to stop the former champ via strikes.
Following the loss to Nunes, Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan once again shouldered the majority of the criticism for the loss as numerous members of the MMA community continued to bash the Glendale Fighting Club head coach.
