Ronda Rousey’s 48-second knockout loss to Amanda Nunes on Friday at UFC 207 produced a number of social media reactions from fans, fighters and celebrities alike, ranging anywhere from supportive to outright mean-spirited.
Even Nunes, the UFC women's bantamweight champion, took a shot at Rousey immediately after the fight by posting an Internet meme. On Saturday night, Bellator prospect Michael "Venom" Page took it one step further.
Page (12-0), a promising welterweight from England, posted a music video of himself dancing in the streets in a punch-drunk motion while singing "Rousey … Rousey … do the Ronda Rousey" over a beat. He added insult to injury during the 39-second video by repeatedly misspelling Rousey's first name as "Rhonda."

Unbeaten in eight Bellator fights since making his debut in 2013, Page received plenty of backlash in the comments to the post.
The 29-year-old, who is known for his in-cage theatrics during fights, is fresh off a disappointing split-decision win over Fernando Gonzalez in November at Bellator 165. Page was booed throughout for doing more dancing than fighting in an awkward bout in which neither fighter pressed forward.
