Sports fans erupt after Ronda Rousey beats Serena Williams for 'Best Female Athlete Ever'

Not only is Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey the highest paid fighter in all of mixed martial arts (MMA), she's also the greatest female athlete who ever lived, according to the gang at ESPN.

That makes a nice little addition to her recent ESPY.

"Rowdy," who was unseeded in the original bracket, KOed Missy Franklin, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Diana Taurasi, and Florence Griffith Joyner before taking out tennis superstar Serena Williams, capturing 52 percent of the vote in the process.

That said, not every sports fan is breaking out the bubbly.

Any UFC fans out there care to defend the results of this recent poll?
