Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is still bitter that she lost to Holly Holm last November 14, 2015 at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia. Rousey allegedly confronted and cussed out strawweight prospect Paige VanZant at a Reebok photo shoot for congratulating Holm on her win.

In a recent appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, current women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate revealed that VanZant told her about the incident at a VIP event. Tate said that Rousey went off on PVZ and called her a “fairweathered bitch.”

“They’ve never really had a conversation either. She’s like ‘I don’t know Ronda other than hi, bye.’ That’s it. I guess she came up, Ronda came up and was like ‘F*** you, you fairweathered bitch. How dare you cross me.’ She (Paige) was like ‘Cross you? What are you talking about?’ And she (Rousey) is like ‘You congratulated Holly Holm for beating me, so f*** you, you f****** fairweathered 115-pound.’ She just went off on Paige,” Tate told Rogan via Bloody Elbow.

Paige VanZant has confirmed the incident with Rousey in a statement given to TMZ Sports. The 22-year-old fighter said that she was shocked by what happened.

“It appears that I offended Ronda by congratulating Holly after her victory. The incident was very shocking and totally unnecessary,” VanZant said.

It has been six months since Rousey lost via a devastating head kick knockout to Holm, but it looks likes she is still very upset about it. TMZ tried to reach out to Rousey’s camp regarding the PVZ cussing out incident but received no replies.

On the other hand, the women’s bantamweight division is very crazy right now in terms of competition since Holm the title Tate. The current champion will face Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 this July while Cyborg Justino will finally make her Octagon debut at UFC 198 in May.
