Ahead of her super-fight showdown with Cris Cyborg at UFC 232, relive Amanda Nunes’ signature victory – her first-round destruction of Ronda Rousey at UFC 207.
One of the most eagerly anticipated comebacks in recent memory ended up with a fight that amounted to one of the least competitive bouts we have ever seen when Ronda Rousey attempted to rebound from her brutal KO loss to Holly Holm against the champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
The mental side of this sport is one that simply cannot be understated and when Rousey stepped into the octagon that night, it became very, very clear that she wasn’t in the right state of mind to take on a trained killer like Nunes.
The Lioness is no joke, though – something she proved once against with the pair of 135lb title defenses that followed UFC 207, but with a fighter of Cyborg’s quality in front of her at this end of this month, it will be very interesting to see how she fares against the seemingly unbeatable force of nature that stands before her.
