In a stunning upset, Holly Holm knocked out reigning UFC champ Ronda Rousey in the second round of a heavily-hyped fight in Melbourne last night.

Holm became the new bantamweight champion, while Rousey was rushed to a nearby hospital after enduring a vicious pummeling that ended with a kick to the neck.

The extent of Rousey's injuries remains unknown, but several sources have reported that there is some good news, as the 28-year-old did not suffer a concussion, as previously thought.

Unfortunately, it's also being reported that Rousey may require plastic surgery due to a shattered nose and badly split lip.

The news has not been confirmed by Rousey's reps, but was verified by several mainstream media outlets such as ESPN.

Almost as well-known for her likeable, outspoken demeanor as for her dominance in the ring, Rousey remains the UFC's most recognized figure.

Her film roles and feuds with celebrities like Justin Bieber and Floyd Mayweather have helped to make Rousey a household name, even to those who have no interest in mixed martial arts.

While the loss to Holm was obviously a serious blow to the previously-undefeated Rousey, she's expected to make a full recovery and challenge Holm to a rematch. 

We'll have further updates on Rousey's condition as more information becomes available.
