Amanda Nunes Reveals What She Said To Ronda Rousey In The Octagon

Amanda Nunes Reveals What She Said To Ronda Rousey In The Octagon

She has a point.

We all know of people being gracious in defeat in the UFC, but being kind in victory is something just as admirable.

After Amanda Nunes knocked Ronda Rousey into 2017 a day early in all but 48 seconds, she was kind of courteous, but rather backhandedly.

She went up to her opponent to tell her that she 'did a lot for the sport', which is nice, but then followed it up with a bit of savagery.


According to MMA Fighting, she said: "I told her, 'You did a lot for the sport. You did a lot, but now you can take time and do something else. You don't need to keep doing that'."

There's been a lot of talk about whether this is the final nail in the coffin for Rousey following her 13-month absence after Holly Holm hospitalised her last November at UFC 193.

At Nunes' post-fight press conference, she said: "She is a millionaire already why would she want to keep doing that?", before adding: "Why would she want to keep getting hurt."

She has a point, but whether Ronda wants to go down another route, or try and retain her pride in the octagon is still unknown.
