ICYMI: The Memes after Ronda Rousey’s Loss Were Just as Brutal as Her KO
UFC Female Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey was the victim of a stunning upset at UFC 193, where challenger Holly Holm thoroughly dominated the champ en route to a second round knock out. Holm, an experienced boxer and kickboxer, used her reach to keep Rousey at a distance and then peppered the champ with punches, elbows and a kick to the head that sealed the deal. Like clockwork, the memes began hitting the internet practically as soon as Rousey hit the canvas. No matter what heights you reach, you can count on social media to pile it on when you’re knocked down. Here are some of the memes that made the rounds:
