Kobe Bryant Says We Should Applaud Ronda Rousey, Not Insult Her

NBA legend Kobe Bryant went to Twitter after Ronda Rousey lost against Amanda Nunes and said we shouldn’t be making fun of her or boo her.

Instead of clapping for @RondaRousey defeat give her a standing O for putting the sport on the map #pioneer #muse

UFC was just sold for $4B as many believe the hype about her brought in more more. Rousey did receive $3M in the loss against Nunes.

Rousey made a statement to ESPN:

“Returning to not just fighting, but winning, was my entire focus this past year. However, sometimes — even when you prepare and give everything you have and want something so badly — it doesn’t work how you planned. I take pride in seeing how far the women’s division has come in the UFC and commend all the other women who have been part of making this possible, including Amanda.”
