The comments received a huge response on our forum and on Twitter, where some people to exception them, including the apparel brand American MMA, which offered a $5,000 bounty to whomever KO's Ronda Rousey in the Octagon:

An MMA apparel company says it will give a cash reward to the first fighter to knock out Ronda Rousey.
