Fit Fix: Live From New York! Ronda Rousey Is Set to Host "SNL"

Today in ex-champions returning to the public spotlight, and everything else you need to know.
Jimmy Fallon is probably stoked he's no longer in the "SNL" cast.

Live From New York!: So yeah, she got clobbered by Holly Holm. But love her or hate her, you just can't turn down the wattage on Ronda Rousey. The multitalented UFC star will once again enter the public spotlight for the first time after her crushing loss at UFC 193 with her first-ever gig as host of Saturday Night Live on January 23. (We can't wait to see her put Colin Jost in an arm bar). It's just the beginning of what figures to be a busy year for Rousey: UFC President Dana White has already said that the Rousey-Holm rematch will be in 2016, and could come as early as July 9, despite claims from Holm's camp that Rousey won't be ready and that Holm would prefer to fight someone else (like Miesha Tate) in the meantime.

Fitbit's on Fire: The heavyweight maker of sweat-ready gadgets unveiled its first-ever "fitness tracker watch," the Blaze, on Tuesday morning.

"Google Glass for Cyclists": Garmin has revealed its new Varia Vision, a $399 "in-sight display" that integrates with other Garmin products to give bicyclists heads-up notifications about cars behind them (yay) or incoming phone calls (wtf). [The Verge]

Under Armour Joins the Fray: The fast-growing apparel juggernaut on Tuesday launched its new HealthBox, a "connected fitness" system designed to measure "how you feel" with three different gadgets: the wrist-mounted band, a scale, and a heart rate tracker you wear on your chest. [Under Armour]


Location, Location, Location: Three NFL teams—the San Diego Chargers, the Oakland Raiders, and the St. Louis Rams—have filed documents to move to Los Angeles, the league said. The price to move to a new home? A cool $550 million. [NBC Los Angeles]

The Future Has Arrived: Also unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show: the new Faraday Future, a 1,000-horsepower, all-electric car that goes from 0 to 60 in less than three seconds. But let's be honest—you're just buying it because it looks like a Batmobile. [Los Angeles Times]


Tom Coughlin Steps Down: Coughlin resigned Monday after 12 seasons at the helm of the New York Giants, after claiming two Super Bowl wins in East Rutherford but backsliding the past few seasons. []
