Brazilian Amanda Nunes stops Rousey inside a minute to retain her bantamweight title on a painful night for the former champion
Ronda Rouseys UFC comeback didnt even last a minute.
Rousey was stopped 48 seconds into her first fight in 13 months Friday night, losing to bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
Rousey( 12 -2) never managed to get her footing against Nunes( 14 -4 ), who rocked Rousey with her very first punches. Rousey proved little defensive acumen as she staggered and stumbled backward with Nunes relentlessly seeking her and landing 27 punches in the brief bout.
Forget about Ronda Rousey! Nunes screamed to the sellout crowd. Shes going to go do movies. Keep forgetting her. She has a lot of money already.
Indeed, Rouseys future in the athletic is clearly in question. The biggest starring in the womens game, who left the arenas without dedicating an interview, is likely considering retirement shortly before her 30 th birthday.
Thats it for her, Nunes said. For sure, shes going to retire.
Referee Herb Dean stopped the bout with Rousey still on her feet, and Rousey briefly protested the stoppage before leaving the cage in her moms limbs. Nunes set her finger to her lips and circled the enclosure after the stoppage, pausing to taunt Rouseys much-maligned coach-and-four, Edmond Tarverdyan.
