It’s hard to argue with Amanda Nunes. Ronda Rousey does need to retire. In fact, she probably should have retired after losing to Holly Holm. Nunes, certainly had a fantastic performance last night at UFC 207. After all, she just completed one of the most dominant performances we’ve ever seen, against UFC’s most dominant female fighter. However, Rousey is just a shell of herself now. She basically came back to be Amanda Nunes’ punching bag for 48 seconds. That’s an issue that will likely never be resolved.
It was a humiliating performance, but not surprising at all. It’s not very surprising that she looked unprepared and out of sync. Nunes certainly took advantage in ‘The Octagon’ and wasn’t shy talking about it afterwards.
“I knew I was gonna beat the s**t out of Ronda Rousey like that.
“I trained for this girl from my first fight in the UFC.
Nunes went on to say, “I proved to everybody I am the best on the planet.”
“This is my time,” said Nunes. “Ronda Rousey did a lot for the sport and we thank her for that, but now I am the champion. I loved it that they disregarded me. I prepared my body and spirit for this moment. Ronda Rousey was never going to take this belt from me.” Nunes went on to say in the post-fight press conference……”Yeah, she’s going to retire. That’s it. She can’t take anymore. If she wants a rematch the same things going to happen again, because she can’t take my punches”.
Nunes didn’t stop there. She also ripped Rousey’s coach, Edmond Tarverdyan for turning her into more of a boxer. “Yeah, because she thinks that she’s a boxer, you know?” she said. “He like put this thing in her head and make the girl believe in that. I don’t know why he did that. She have great judo, and she can go far in this division, but he put some crazy thing about boxing, and her career started to go down. And if I win that, I am the real striker. This is the only thing I wanted to look at him, to say it.”
Word is that Rousey is devastated over the loss. Will she retire? Who knows? One things for sure, Amanda Nunes is going nowhere anytime soon.
