Ronda Rousey Breaks Her Silence On Devastating Loss To Amanda Nunes

Ronda Rousey Breaks Her Silence On Devastating Loss To Amanda Nunes

Ronda Rousey's long awaited return to the Octagon was short-lived as the 29-year old lasted just 48 seconds against UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes.

Rousey was on the back-foot from the off and was pummeled by vicious strikes by the Lioness, ultimately resulting in a TKO knockout win at UFC 207 for Nunes.

Rousey had remained silent in the build-up to the fight, with a media blackout in place as she looked to get back on track in UFC after over a year away from the sport.

Ronda did not do an interview in the Octagon, backstage or in the post-fight presser after her demoralising defeat.

But she has now broke her silence, giving a statement to ESPN and saying that she "needs to take some time to reflect and think about the future".

Rousey also talked about how proud she is of the rise of the UFC's women's division that has seen a juggling of the Women's Bantamweight Championship before Nunes' successful defence at UFC 207.

The statement, in full, reads:

"I want to say thank you to all of my fans who have been there for me in not only the greatest moments but in the most difficult ones. Words cannot convey how much your love and support means to me.

"Returning to not just fighting, but winning, was my entire focus this past year. However, sometimes -- even when you prepare and give everything you have and want something so badly - it doesn't work how you planned. I take pride in seeing how far the women's division has come in the UFC and commend all the other women who have been part of making this possible, including Amanda.

"I need to take some time to reflect and think about the future. Thank you for believing in me and understanding."
