First Serena and now this?!?! Some of the world’s foremost female athletes are facing some challenges, and the woman who likes to do the sex, MMA fighter Ronda Rousey, is no exception. She was knocked out in the second round of last night's championship with a devastating kick to the head. Ouch.
But, it wasn't just the kick meeting her jawline that destabilized Rousey. She was stunned by opponent Holly Holm's left hand a few times before the knockout blow, making this a true takedown. In fact the crazy result seems straight outta an Aesop Fable, as a greatly-favored, trash-talking Rousey learned a fable-worthy lesson, hopefully.
Before the fight, Rousey was rousing up tons of bad blood, calling Holm "fake" on Instagram and promising to "kick her ass." If only Holm would have given Rousey a knockout kick to the ass to complete the irony. That's if a literal knockout ass kick is even possible (googles frantically).

Holm is obviously stoked to claim the bantamweight championship, telling ESPN, "I don't know, I'm trying to take it all in. This is crazy!" After all, Holm's win is being called the biggest upset in the sport's history.
But, the real blow here comes to the anti-lube advocates of the world, who just saw their patron saint fall from grace. Just goes to show that everyone's got to compromise invincibility sometime, with lube use or otherwise.
