Getting a shout-out in a song is kind of a big deal, so when UFC star Ronda Rousey found out her name was used in one of Demi Lovato's new songs, she was honored.

Lovato recently released her new album, Confident. It was in the song "Stars" that she found a way to give a quick shout-out to the dominant fighter.

Knock 'em all out, beat 'em like Rousey.

Of course, Lovato has made it clear in the past that she's a pretty big Rousey fan:

Now, the singer has found a way to show her respect for the fighter.

Lovato made sure Rousey knew about the shout-out and why she included the line:
