Sometimes you need to be careful about being boastful.
Ultimate Fighting Championship undefeated fighter Ronda Rousey talked about making history with her match in Australia.
But the fighter and the newspaper forgot something. She forgot to win. The paper forgot to arrange for a photo.
On Saturday the Review-Journal had an advance story on the Rousey match, along with a column comparing her to invincible Mike Tyson and a pre-match photo taken by the reporter in Australia.
Today the headline screams “Rousey Routed,” but the USA Today photo beneath it is of another match. Online USA Today has a photo of the knockout kick, as well as one of Rousey on the canvas and a video. The story mentions that the Las Vegas sports books took a bath. AP also has photos, but the paper does not subscribe to that expensive wire service any more.
Even online the paper has only a file photo of Rousey.
Be careful when you boast.
