It's the most glaring example of Rousey's self-imposed blackout of the mixed martial arts media, an unprecedented move for a UFC pay-per-view event that has raised questions about her mental state, as well as how the UFC will conduct business in the future under its new ownership. "I don't like to do a lot of interviews", Nunes told the Las Vegas Review. "I'm ready to show this and make a statement to this division", Nunes said. "I think if it was Ronda Rousey in her early career, I don't think she could be able to do this". The reigning bantamweight champion is sitting atop a four-fight winning streak, with her most recent victory having come in the first round against all-time-great Miesha Tate. "Something changes. To me, there is no doubt that thinking about him uplifts her and drives her forward in any moments of self doubt".
Currently, Nunes is seeing three times as much betting support from bettors at Sports Interaction. After spending a year to get back on top, Rousey is now determined to earn her redemption Friday night proving once again that she is the best. Even in her lone loss in the UFC against Cat Zingano, Nunes was absolutely battering the former title challenger in the first round before fading late in the fight. I want to be the main event, this is the thing I want to do.
"Maybe she doesn't really want to be doing this", Tate told Fox.
As soon as they were done with posing, Ronda turned and quickly hurried off the stage while Amanda stayed and put her hands in the air triumphantly while the reporters and photographers went nuts.
If an epic Mc Gregor versus Mayweather fight does take place in the upcoming 2017 then it is going to be crazy
UFC president Dana White also confirmed that the 29-year-old former judoka will not attend any pre-fight press conferences prior to UFC 207 in Nevada. That's what gives me the advantage in this fight. She is also one of the quickest fighters in UFC when it comes to capitalizing on mistakes made by opponents and going in for the finish.
The problem with that is, UFC 207 is an event in desperate need of promotion given that the event will air live on Saturday afternoon (Friday night - USA time), a day earlier than usual.
Nunes is privy to everything that's going on, but is making a conscious decision not to let it affect her. He has landed the second most significant strikes per minute and has the second-best strike differential among bantamweights. Nevertheless, the commission took action and revoked his license to fight, leaving Werdum without an opponent. A remarkable striker who picked the champion apart with elite-level footwork and intelligent counter-striking, "The Preacher's Daughter" took it to the incumbent queen and wound up taking her belt. I don't know what's going to happen.
Holm would go on to lose her next two bouts after the performance of her life; perfectly thwarting Rousey's judo holds with a counter-attacking strategy.
