Nunes has been posting things like memes with her pushing a stroller with Ronda in it, and has been on a trolling spree since last night. While she may be understandably bitter about not being promoted like she should have by the company, many don't like a cocky winner either. She may become overconfident and lose in the same fasion next time. Wouldn't be surprising given the belt has moved around recently. Shes not selling herself in the best way here.

There is a saying in that if you want to see someones true character...give them some power.

Nunes just sent out that one tweet. That's it's, no constant trolling. And it's just a funny light hearted meme, the tweet wasn't vulgar or anything serious really. She won the fight, she also won the right to talk ****. If Rousey doesn't like it maybe she should have used a better defensive technique instead of blocking punches with her face. Nunes is probably angry too. She won the fight but only got a little bit of the purse that Rousey got. She knows that Rousey is a fraud, but yet she gets all the money and attention. In a perfect world it wouldn't be that way but we all know Dana White auditions the fighters he thinks can be stars instead of going off of ability. She's selling herself in a good way to me. She's an athelete and she showed the world her hard work in dispatching Rousey in under a minute. Who cares if she sends out one tweet gloating about her victory. We've had to endure years of the media blitz about an overrated fighter who made her bones beating up p/t accountants and students.

Quite shocking Rhonda was defeated so fast that too by a TKO. I think this may be the end of her career. It's like Rhonda completely forgot how to move and dodge punches.

Rousey needs to go back to the kitchen and cook her man food. She's done. Washed up. This is what happens when dominant, ARROGANT fighters get hit with reality.

They aren't as good as they think they are. There is usually always someone better past, present, or future.. Unless you're Ali

I have no idea why Rousey thought it was a good idea to box. As soon as she got hit by a single flush right hand, she should have thought to herself that she might be better off wrestling. She's lucky that it was a girl throwing those punches. I know there was talk about her fighting Floyd Mayweather at one time. Floyd isn't the hardest puncher in boxing, but he punches hard enough to KO grown men, so I imagine Floyd would have one punched Rousey.

I'm not going to pretend to know anything about wrestling, but she should have used her typical rushing style that got her to where she is in the first place. Have no idea why she chose such a stupid strategy.

Bottom line Nunes was much hungrier, she probably trained harder and she certainly looked better - despite MMA favoritism towards Rhonda, and their desire to place her back on the pedestal. Rhonda meanwhile has lost whatever mojo she once possessed, probably never to return.

The pundits are blaming her coaches for brainwashing her with the idea that she is a striker. Her bag was judo and the arm bar.


And to think at one time they were going to put her against Cyborg.


She made bread for herself and the organization. Give it up girl before you look like some mashed-face club fighter with scrambled brains.

Well, that's that. No one should be under the delusion that Rousey can beat the likes of Floyd Mayweather or male MMA fighters anymore. It's amazing how the weak minded can be brainwashed by the media.

It's funny you say that because Rousey went insane with power when she was winning. She thought she could beat Mayweather in a fight and even thought she had some sort of chance against Cain Velasquez. She also gave very little respect to her fellow fighters.

She also thought she could stand a chance against Layla Ali.

It was a bad move from Ronda's team and the UFC to put her against Amanda. She should have requested a fighter that she could easily beat. The issue now is that everyone now knows the playbook on how to beat her. If she wants to continue fighting she will have to seek out a top level boxing and kickboxing coach and sparring partners.

Also, for people saying that Ronda put women's MMA on the map you are forgetting about the 1st big female star of MMA, Gina Carano. Also, it was other MMA companies that gave women's MMA a chance, Bellator, EliteXc, Strikeforce, etc. The UFC got into the Women's MMA bandwagon after its parent company, Zuffa, bought Strikeforce and transferred the contracts of its top talent to the UFC, Ronda and Tate included. Don't believe the BS that Dana W is saying that it was after the conversation that he had with Ronda that he decided to have women's MMA in the UFC.
