Ronda was brought to hospital after she was KO'd by Holm during the match.

White told TMZ Ronda wasn't concussed, but she sustained a "very big gash" in the middle of her lip.

She is expected to see a plastic surgeon in Australia later today.

White also said that Ronda did not talk about the loss - "The last thing a fighter wants to do is talk about a fight when they lose".

White praised both fighters - Ronda has helped break records for UFC and taken it to a level that hasn't been seen before.

Holly Holm had 45 fights under her belt and had won multiple world titles before last night's bout with Rousey.

White says there will be rematch.

The rights to last night's match in Australia were snapped up around the world, with people tuning in from Ireland, the UK, the US, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.
