Amanda Nunes wasn’t the only one who was happy to see Ronda Rousey take the second loss of her UFC career on Friday night. It appears Justin Bieber was, too.
If you’re not familiar with Bieber’s history with Rousey, here’s a quick recap: Rousey got pissed at Biebs back in October 2015 because she said the singer was "really rude" to her little sister once. Rousey said her sister approached Bieber for a photo at the Cannes Film Festival and he shut her down. Bieber responded to that by apologizing about a month later—"Ronda, I’m sorry," he said, "don’t kick my ass!"—but he also sent a not-so-subtle shot in her direction by referencing her shocking loss to Holly Holm during the same interview. "Did you see Ronda Rousey?" he said. "She got knocked out cold! Oh my God, she got knocked out so bad…She got pummeled."
Rousey didn’t respond to that diss from Bieber, just like she didn’t respond to any of the other disses celebrities sent her way. But it seems Biebs still isn’t over what Rousey said about him. Because after she lost to Nunes at UFC 207 in Las Vegas on Friday night, he had this to say:
And while he didn’t specifically mention her by name, everyone seemed to know exactly who he was talking about:
Assuming Bieber is talking about Rousey, it isn’t the first time he’s thrown a shot at a UFC fighter in the immediate aftermath of a fight. He did the same thing to Nate Diaz after he beat Conor McGregor in their first fight, and that ended with Biebs and Diaz eventually talking out their differences and taking a selfie together.
So maybe this Bieber/Rousey thing will end the same way? Yeeeeeeeah, we wouldn’t count on it.
