IN the weeks leading up to UFC 193, dozens of high-profile celebrities voiced their approval and admiration for the UFC bantamweight Ronda Rousey.

Everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Demi Lovoto to J.J. Watt all jumped on board the hype train that was Rousey. Not so much for her opponent Holly Holm.

But following Holm’s vicious second round headkick knockout over the queen of combat sports, Lady Gaga wasted no time in voicing her approval of the Holm’s victory, while taking a shot at the fallen champion’s lack of professionalism.

The Pop icon turned American Horror Story star took to Instagram, with a total 12.3 million followers, to take aim Rousey for poor sportsmanship where she refused to touch gloves with Holm during the customary pre-fight stare down.

“That’s what you get for not touching gloves!” Gaga wrote.

Rousey has yet to make any kind of public statement since leaving the Octagon after the defeat. However UFC President Dana White revealed she “devastated” by “physically OK.”
