The shocking bout results for UFC 193 came as a shocker to most MMA fans, especially for those who were rooting for MMA superstar-turned-actress Ronda Rousey. The undefeated Bantam Weight Women’s Division Champion lost her title to challenger Holly Holm of Australia.
As reported by Fox Sports, several celebrities showed their support for the MMA superstar who had been undefeated after 12 bouts inside the UFC Octagon. Ronda Rousey, the labeled woman warrior, earned her stardom for ending her fights inside the octagon swiftly. From Miesha Tate to Cat Zingano, she brought these ladies to shame by defeating them with her outstanding arm bar finishes.
However, when she was due to fight Holly Holm last Sunday, November 15, 2015, the 56,000-packed arena in Australia were shocked that the latter was able to put the undefeated women’s Bantam Weight Champion to sleep within six minutes in the fight.
Although some showed their consistent support for Rousey, several celebrities were disappointed by her behavior when she refused to honor the glove-tapping routine fighters engage in before a fight would commence. One of these celebrities was Lady Gaga, as reported by Sydney Morning Herald.
She took to her Instagram account saying, “That’s what you get for not touching gloves!” as a caption to a photo she posted. The “American Horror Story” actress unveiled her negative reaction to Rousey’s lack of sportsmanship to Holm during the fight.
By the end of the championship match between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm, Rousey was sent immediately to Melbourne Hospital to assure that she was in good physical health after she took a beating from Holm. Sources reported that she is currently “depressed” and “bummed out” for losing the title to Holm.
