Six years later and Brock Lesnar is still undefeated.

That said, Ronda Rousey -- along with Holly Holm -- certainly gave him a run for his money. The UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) event attracted more than one million paying customers and is expected to finish second on the all-time list behind UFC 100, according to UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta (via Yahoo! Sports).

Not too shabby.

Safe to say those folks who did shell out the dough to catch "Rousey vs. Holm" got their money's worth, as "The Preacher's Daughter" shocked the world -- including the 56,000 fans inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia -- by knocking "Rowdy" clean out in the second round of their bantamweight headliner.

See the replay here.

In the process, Holm took home the 135-pound title and high-profile rematch in 2016, one that could replicate last Saturday night's (Nov. 14, 2015) success at the box office, which also returned record numbers for the FOX Sports 1 network.
