The incident took place just a couple of weeks ago during a Reebok photoshoot. Rousey confronted VanZant about congratulating Holly Holm on her UFC 193 knockout win over “Rowdy.” She allegedly called VanZant, “a fair-weather (expletive),” before saying, “(expletive) you.”
In a statement provided to TMZ, VanZant characterized the confrontation as “unnecessary.”
“It appears that I offended Ronda by congratulating Holly after her victory. The incident was very shocking and totally unnecessary,” said the 22-year-old.
