(CBS SF/AP) – Former UFC champ Ronda Rousey is turning to “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling for inspiration more than a week after getting humiliated in a comeback match against Amanda Nunes.

The fight at UFC 207 was halted just 48 seconds in after Rousey was pummeled by Nunes. Rousey didn’t talk to reporters afterward.
