Ronda Rousey successfully defended her belt at Saturday night’s UFC 190, and she did it in typical thrilling fashion. The UFC, meanwhile, made a ridiculous amount of money selling the pay-per-view and via whatever other secondary revenue streams they have that got a boost from Rousey’s star power. All in all, it was a good night for everyone.
Which is why the phrase “To the victor go the spoils” so aptly applies here. Note the Instagram post below and the plate of wings in the foreground. UFC honchos Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta flew a personal chef down to Brazil just so the champ could have her traditional postfight celebratory chicken wings.
That’s what winning tastes like, folks. It tastes like spicy buffalo chicken.
