Rousey determined to get her title back

Rousey determined to get her title back”

Hopefully, that won't happen this time.

Rousey suffered a brutal knockout in that fight, which has made her comeback a must-see for many UFC fans. She had been put on such a lofty pedestal her dominance was compared to Mike Tyson, when he ravaged boxing's heavyweight division. Her three-year reign as the Bantamweight champion came to a stunning end as Rousey fell unconscious after being on the receiving end of a head kick.

Stay tuned for the latest on Rounda Rousey and UFC 207.

Since her loss, Rousey has been called "not a nice person" by President-elect Donald Trump, hosted Saturday Night Live and appeared in a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. But, she's a lot better than she was in the Holly Holm fight.

Nunes improved to 14-4 in her professional mixed martial arts career, and 7-1 in the UFC. "I'm wrapping it up", she said. "This is the only thing I wanted to look at him, to say it". I'm still the greatest fighter in the world."I'm coming back to win this title for the people that believed in me".

The opening of a third women's weight category is another major milestone, especially when you consider that before Rousey's debut against Liz Carmouche in 2013, White declared no woman would fight for the company. She was approachable and cooperative.

Quite honestly, it would be best if she hung up the gloves for good.

In contrast, Nunes was paid $100,000 to show and another $100,000 as a win bonus for her first title defence, apart from an undisclosed share of pay per view revenues.

Kaylee, who is a big Adele fan, has been blown away by the attention her performance has received from around the world. Down would have thought Kaylee Rogers' attractive take on the song would soon be watched and shared by people worldwide.

However, the American will be up against Nunes, who has been climbing up the UFC ladder in the recent past.

WWE has made no secret of the fact that they covet the services of MMA mega-star Ronda Rousey.

Nunes, in many ways, is a product of Rousey's impact on MMA.

Johny Hendricks missed weight and is having a tough time his last six fights going a awful 2-4 after wrecking just about everyone in the division from 2011 to 2013. Because of Rousey, women have become a top attraction.

At UFC 208 at Barclays Center on February 11, women will headline again when Holm faces Germaine de Randamie for the newly created 145-pound women's featherweight division.

The champion also stepped on the scale early, weighing 135 pounds a few minutes after Rousey exited the room. But, she was already too injured and Nunes was too aggressive to let her regain anything.

"You know, this is my chosen sport", she said.

But she will never be the draw she once was after another beatdown. This is what she asked for.
