From the opening bell, Amanda Nunes was the dominant fighter and crushed Ronda Rousey
Alright, we can now admit it.
Amanda Nunes is the baddest woman on the planet.
That’s the title you are crowned upon absolutely destroying Ronda Rousey in less than a minute. Nunes defended her title with a precision striking display that Ronda had no chance against.
As soon as Nunes came out, you could tell that Rousey was not prepared. After an opening barrage of punches, Herb Dean the ref had to step in and stop the fight at only 48 seconds in.
The loss seems to be the final passing of the torch from Rousey to the next generation of women’s bantamweight fighters. With the second straight loss, it would seem as though Rousey’s UFC career has likely come to a close.
Meanwhile, Nunes proved that her win over Miesha Tate at UFC 200 was no fluke as she dominated again to retain her title in impressive fashion. Nunes has proven herself as the world’s best female fighter and now the question is the same as it was for Rousey in her prime; who in the division can give her a challenge?
