Here's what Holly Holm told Ronda Rousey during their post-fight hug at UFC 193

And it's night and day from what Rousey told Bethe Correia at UFC 190 (see that "cold" message here).

Newly-crowned Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm wasn't leaving the Octagon without first talking to Ronda Rousey, who was knocked out by "The Preacher's Daughter" in the UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) main event last weekend in Australia.

See it again here.

So, what did she say to her fallen foe after so many "Rowdy" outbursts? That was a question Larry King asked when he invited Holm to be a part of his 137th birthday.

And her answer didn't sound "fake."

"I really admire you for being such a great, dominant champion," Holm told Rousey during their post-fight embrace. "None of us would be here without you, so I appreciate you."

No argument here.

Rousey has yet to be seen -- outside of this brief appearance -- since surrendering her title "Down Under," but you can expect an immediate title shot when she returns in 2016 (says this guy).
