Apparel brand will give $5K to first woman who knocks out Ronda Rousey
An MMA apparel company says it will give a cash reward to the first fighter to knock out Ronda Rousey.The Americana MMA Twitter account announced Saturday that $5,000 will go to the woman who KOs the UFC womens champion after Rousey called fellow womens MMA star Cris Cyborg "an it" in an interview with Yahoo! this week.Americana MMA owner Peter Giannoulis turned down an interview request from FOX Sports on Sunday. Giannoulis believes Rousey should be suspended or fined for her comments about Cyborg the same way, writing as much on both Twitter and Facebook. Giannoulis cited the UFCs handling of situations regarding derogatory remarks from male fighters Matt Mitrione and Matt Brown. Mitrione was fined and suspended and Brown issued an apology. In the interview with Yahoo, Rousey went off on Cyborg and her past failed drug test. Cyborg currently fights under the Invicta FC banner, but is attempting to make Rouseys 135-pound weight class so she can enter the UFC and challenge her."Ive said before, I dont care if shes injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, Ill fight her, but thats just my personal decision," Rousey said. "But I cant make a decision for the whole division. I cant say its the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that shes not even a woman anymore. Shes an it. Its not good for the womens division. Its not good at all."Rouseys next opponent is Alexis Davis at UFC 175 on July 5 in Las Vegas. Giannoulis tweeted Davis on Saturday, reiterating that Americana would give her $5,000 if she beat Rousey via knockout.
