When the audience began to clap, Rousey jokingly cut them off saying "that's enough!" Holm and Rousey will face off in a rematch this year ....If Holm defeats Miesha Tate in a March 5th fight.

Aloha Hula Supply Center just moved and had a grand opening over the weekend. They moved over to the Radford area right next to Target on Lawehana Street. The employees moved the company themselves, needing 6 long containers going back and forth to bring everything to their new home. Now they have a 4 year lease, but would love longer. Meanwhile, customers will find more parking in a very accessible area. Kumu Hula and dancers from keiki starters to Merrie Monarch Dancers knew where the old place was; Owner Sue Eldridge says they are anticipating to be busy as Merrie Monarch and "Competition Season" is around the corner. They service everyone from here at home to hula dancers around the planet.
