The former UFC middleweight champ, Anderson Silva took to IG to show his love and support to the now, former bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey.
On Saturday, Ronda lost in the second round at 59 seconds, her longest fight of her career against Holly Holm.
The pay-per-view fight ended with a stunning kick to the head that knocked Ronda out and lost her the fight too.
The fight was going to end badly for one of the fights considering that they both held a zero lost record. Holms is now, 10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC and Ronda is 12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC.
Silva wanted Ronda to know that just because she was defeated doesn’t mean that she won’t be back again. You can, fall, but you’ll always get back up…
Anderson Silva’s IG posting:

Ronda did post a brief statement out on Sunday too say, “I just wanted to thank everyone for the love and support. I appreciate the concerns about my health, but I’m fine. As I mentioned before, I’m going to take a little bit of time, but I’ll be back.”
The brief time off was something that Ronda had scheduled to do regardless of the outcome of her fight. Her time off was made for projects that she already had scheduled.
