UFC was shocked at the weekend when Ronda Rousey was knocked out and defeated for the first time since joining the organisation by a Holly Holm head kick. Rousey lost her UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship in the process and UFC history was changed forever.
Many stars from around the world came out and showed their support for Rousey after her loss, but it had appeared boxer Floyd Mayweather, who has had problems with the UFC fighter in the past, once again taunted her through his good friend, rapper 50 Cent on his Instagram account.

He said: "That's not true at all. I haven't really spoke to anyone about the Ronda Rousey situation, just to set the record straight. I don't have anything against MMA fighters. It's just like boxing; you win some, you lose some. A true champion can take a loss and bounce back."
Mayweather also said he doesn't like how some fans have gone from supporting her to taunting her due to the knockout.
"I don't think it's cool how everyone is trolling her on social media. Certain things you have to learn. People will love you on Friday and then Sunday morning, it's nothing but negative comments and people making jokes and people making fun about you, which I don't think is cool," he said.
"I've never been on the other side, so I don't know how it feels. I'm pretty sure she's a very, very strong person, but we still have to take into consideration that she has feelings."
A rematch between the two women is yet to be booked as Rousey is taking some time off, but is highly likely due to how much of a draw she is for the UFC. Despite her loss, this draw shouldn't be affected, and the rematch may even perform better in pay-per-view buys.
We'll have to wait and see for a rematch to be booked, maybe even Mayweather will make an appearance at the event to show his support for Rousey.
