An MMA apparel company has announced a $5,000 reward to the first fighter who can knockout UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

While Rousey's comments regarding Cyborg were in reference to her use of performance-enhancing drugs, they were certainly tasteless comments and deserve some form of reprimand.
"I've said before, I don't care if she's injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, I'll fight her, but that's just my personal decision," Rousey told Yahoo Sports. "But I can't make a decision for the whole division. I can't say it's the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that she's not even a woman anymore. She's an 'it.' It's not good for the women's division. It's not good at all."
It is for this reason that Americana and its owner Peter Giannoulis offered the reward to KO Rousey. It was an incentive for any active female competitor who faces her in the octagon.
Rousey is scheduled to defend her women's bantamweight title against Alexis Davis in the co-main event of UFC 175. Giannoulis emphasized his intentions by tweeting at Davis to inform her about the cash reward.
