Should Ronda Rousey Dump Edmond Tarverdyan & Return?
Jan 01 2017 by Johnnie Parsons
The Olympic medallist failed in her pursuit to recapture the women's bantamweight title in spectacular fashion. If Rousey wins the WWE Women's Title she could work on a part-time basis similar to what Brock Lesnar did when he was the champion three years ago. While at weigh-ins, Nunes heard boos from the crowd and told the audience, "I will show everybody I'm the real champion".
"And now you guys have to look at these girls who are working hard and forget about Ronda Rousey".
There were even jokes made about her appearance in "Entourage" the movie.
On Friday at UFC 207, the "Lioness" defends her UFC's women's bantamweight (135 pounds) belt for the first time.
The 29-year-old was knocked unconscious with a kick to the head by Holly Holm in Melbourne last November, a defeat which shattered any sense of invincibility she had previously held. "Nobody knows, but I know I'm going to be ready". Thank you for believing in me and understanding.
Never before had Nunes ever been in a bigger spotlight and she likely never will again. In her time of need, one faithful fan let Ronda know she still has some one to lean on.
Nunes takes pride in how her training in Florida has sparked improved striking. But the loss to No. 1-ranked Nunes could mark the end of her career. Amanda Nunes retains her UFC 135-pound title with an impressive performance against the former champion. "For sure, she's going to retire", Nunes said in her post-fight news conference. Nunes has improved considerably since then, and Rousey's aura of invincibility has been ruined-in her own mind and in the thoughts of others. "She built this whole thing". If she chooses to return to fighting, she'll remain one of the sport's most compelling figures, if only to see if she can return to her prior dominance.
Rousey almost vanished from public view after that loss. I said, 'You're smart and attractive.
Rousey's future in the sport is clearly in question. Rousey could also move up to the more comfortable weight to meet her. Referee Herb Dean stopped the bout with Rousey still on her feet, and though she protested the stoppage, she soon left the cage in her mother's arms.
