NBA Legends LeBron James And Kobe Bryant Offer Support To Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey's eagerly-anticipated UFC return was short lived. At UFC 207, women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes battered Rousey in just 48-seconds.

The former UFC champion was making her first Octagon appearance since she was dethroned by Holly Holm in devastating fashion in 2015.

Now riding back-to-back defeats, her future in the sport remains unclear.

In the wake of her loss, she's been offered some classy words from two of the biggest names in the NBA; Lebron James and the retired Kobe Bryant.

Speaking to the Akron Beacon Journal, the Cleveland Cavaliers star said;

"In sports, in general, they build you up as high as they can, put you on the highest mountain in the world, just to tear you down. That's coming from somebody who has experienced it. That's a fact. I know exactly how she feels because I was that athlete. I went through that."

"I would like to see her retire. I would have liked to see her retire a long time ago. Who wants to see their kid get hit? Cause she's got a lot of talent in a lot of other things. Movies, writing, producing, she's really, really smart. I told her that at the beginning when she started this." She told TMZ.
