Ronda Rousey Shields Her Face From The Press

Newly crowned UFC women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm did some serious damage to the face of Ronda Rousey in this past weekend's fight. False rumors swirled that Rousey broke her jaw, but recent reports say she only suffered a cut lip and some busted pride.

TMZ caught up with Rousey, who returned to Los Angeles earlier this morning, and the former champ was unrecognizable in more ways than one. Rousey used a hood, glasses, her hair and even a pillow in an attempt to cover her face from the press at LAX. Her boyfriend, UFC heavyweight fighter Travis Browne, was in tow with her as they tried to avoid the flashing lights. 

The former UFC bantamweight champion says she'll return after some much needed time off. As the old adage goes, it's not how many times you get knocked down that counts, it's how many times you get up. Recover well, Ronda, and see you back in the Octagon when you are ready.
