The Internet has been ablaze with reactions to Holly Holm's victory over Ronda Rousey last weekend in the UFC Bantamweight Championship fight—or rather, reactions to the fact it was Ronday Rousey's first-ever loss. A striking percentage of fans and writers took the opportunity to rejoice and turn against Rousey, but several professional athletes, including fellow fighters, offered words of support.
Among Rousey's loyal supporters is a man named Andre Boyd. Boyd took to YouTube with his best Ray Lewis imitation to give Rousey an inspirational speech. Check out the video below. His clincher? "Recognize that the true heart of a champion is not defined by how many people you can choke out, but how fast you bounce back when you get smacked in the mouth."
