Amanda Nunes TKOs Ronda Rousey in 48 seconds to defend the women’s bantamweight title.
Ronda Rousey’s disclosed purse for the event was $3 million.
That’s the same amount Conor McGregor earned for his second fight with Nate Diaz.
Amanda got 200K, but will get
a percentage of pay per view too.
On the finish, Brian Ortega says: Oh my god.
Mario Lopez says: Wow. That was brutal. Flawless.
I wonder if that was the media’s fault too.
Cyborg says: Think the media blackout continues?
Ben Askren says: Beautiful work tonight @CoachEdmund Ronda did beautifully!
Quickly after the win Amanda Nunes posted this image of her holding the belt and Ronda Rousey in a stroller.
Randa Markos says: I feel that Ronda just lost faith in her style of fighting. She has beat really good strikers in the past because she stuck to her style
Some people inserted the Jordan crying meme into the pics.
Watching Amanda tee off on Ronda like.
Ronda returned to the UFC and exited the UFC like.
2016 took another, Ronda’s fighting career.
And I’m not sure what to do with my hands.
It’s amazing how many people get some weird satisfaction out of watching someone fail publicly.
Not a RR fan but damn, feel for her.
Matt Brown says: you get a retweet for this sir my thoughts exactly I have been a harsh critic of hers but now is not the time
Matt Mitrione reponds: Her sullen, bratty demeanor heavily affected her public persona & the ufc built her into a media diva by encouraging her douchiness
All said, Rousey has propelled female athletes, fighters particularly, leaps & bounds. Win or lose I commend her on what she’s done. #UFC207
