Marc Raimondi via FOX Sports

In an interview with Yahoo Sports this weekend, Ronda Rousey made some derogatory remarks about Cris Cyborg, going as far as to call her an 'it' instead of a woman.

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.

The Americana MMA Twitter account announced Saturday that $5,000 will go to the woman who KOs the UFC women's champion after Rousey called fellow women's 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 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.

I dont care who hates Cyborg that was fucked up to say and if a guy said that, well we know what would happen.  If Ronda wasnt on Danas greg then she would be fined too.

What the fuck is Americana's beef with Ronda? The only times I've seen controversy on the net about these remarks and it always turns out to have been stirred up by Americana. On Facebook they went as far as to say that she should be sacked! comparing her to people who have been making derogatory marks about peoples sexual tendencies. Ronda made no such remarks, She merely called her an 'it'. Americana need to fuck off with this campaign and stop trying to get fighters sacked you scum bags.

Awesome initiative by American MMA!

I can't see why Rousey would file a lawsuit, as everyone who is in the Octagon with her is supposed to try to k.o. her. The company is just rewarding whomever achieves that!

Fun, fun, fun.

 

Will check their site!

$5,000 contingent on an unlikely event that is unenforceable in court because it's a gratuitious promise, in exchange for free press

Nobody would have cared if Brown and Mitrione had called each other its or freaks (it might have been fun & notable if Brown said that men should fight in jello though).

Brain just turned on, and it's not a gratuitious promise, but no clue it it's enforceable.

Definitely smart either way, I'd never heard of them before.  The odds of a KO in female MMA is relatively low.

I'll add $100.

And not because I dislike Ronda but because I think it's a fun idea! Fans want more, let 'em pony up!

It'd be fun to set up these type of things for UG green namers! We could have our own forum room bonuses! Guys could chip in five, ten bucks...we could build some decent pots for our green brothers and sisters!

Bump this in the event of an eventual KO and I'm good for it. Phone Post 3.0
