Ronda Rousey’s rivals rejoiced in Holly Holm’s shock UFC 193 triumph

Kicking a woman when she's down

Ronda Rousey might still be nursing her wounds after the shocking loss of her UFC bantamweight title this morning, but that hasn’t stopped her MMA rivals sticking the boot in.

Both Miesha Tate and Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino were quick to jump all over the ashes of Rousey’s unbeaten title reign following her defeat by Holly Holm in Australia, with Tate the first out of the blocks.

Tate, who claimed she was overlooked in favour of Holm for the UFC 193 main event and who has a long-standing rivalry with Rousey having lost to her in 2011, was hosting a fight party in Las Vegas where she began her very NSFW remarks by saying:

“I’m f***in’ stoked. F*** Ronda Rousey. F*** her and her “Nobody has the right to beat me.” Nobody has the right to beat you? Well you just got beat, bitch.”

Tate then congratulated Holm before staking a claim to be named the new champion’s first opponent.

Not to be outdone, Invicta champion Cyborg, long thought to be the strongest candidate to dethrone Rousey and rumoured to be heading to the UFC in 2016, took to Twitter to take shots at the fallen champ, poking fun at Rousey’s ‘Do Nothing Bitch’ motto.
