Glad to see that @RondaRousey lost her championship fight last night. Was soundly beaten - not a nice person!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 16, 2015
To say that Ronda Rousey's loss to Holly Holm on Saturday at UFC 193 was shocking is an understatement. But for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, the loss was very gratifying.
Trump went on Twitter the day after to express his effervescent joy over Rousey's loss but it seems based on ill will more than anything, noting that Rousey is "not nice."
However, earlier this year, the Donald told a reporter that Rousey supports him but Rousey refuted that claim on CNN, saying, "I don't want a reality TV star running my country." It's more likely that Trump considers this payback for publicly embarrassing him.
Last week, Rousey confirmed to Maxim that she supports Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.
