Americana MMA Offers 5K To The First Women To KO Ronda Rousey

The Americana MMA apparel company announced via there twitter account on Saturday that they will give $5,000 to the first woman who KOs the UFC women’s champion Ronda Rousey after she called fellow women’s MMA star Cris Cyborg “an it” in an interview this week.

Americana MMA owner Peter Giannoulis refused an interview from FOX Sports on Sunday. Giannoulis believes Rousey should be suspended or fined for her comments about Cyborg, writing as much on both Twitter and Facebook. Giannoulis cited the UFC’s handling of situations regarding derogatory remarks from male fighters Matt Mitrione and Matt Brown. Mitrione was fined and suspended and Brown issued an apology.

During the interview Rousey went off on Cyborg and her past failed drug test. Cyborg currently fights under the Invicta FC banner, but is attempting to make Rousey’s 135-pound weight class so she can enter the UFC and challenge her.

Heres are Rousey’s offensive remarks towards Cyborg:

“I’ve said before, I don’t care if she’s injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, I’ll fight her, but that’s just my personal decision, But I can’t make a decision for the whole division. I can’t say it’s the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that she’s not even a woman anymore. She’s an ‘it.’ It’s not good for the women’s division. It’s not good at all.”

Rousey’s 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.
