Reality Check: Ronda Rousey Needs Change After Latest Loss

That’s how much time was left in the career of Ronda Rousey.

There was arguably no fighter, regardless of gender or weight class, who had as great of a rise in the final quarter of 2016 as Amanda Nunes.

“If she didn’t spar at all, as we heard rumblings about after the fight, that’s probably indefensible”, Anik said about the situation.

After Nunes easily defended the bantamweight belt once held by Rousey, the champion encouraged Rousey to move on.

Goldberg first called a UFC fight in 1997 and became the regular voice at UFC 40 in 2002.

But Rousey’s cash-per-second value is still absurd, especially considering the fact that she lost.

This past Friday night Rousey stepped back into the UFC octagon 13 months after her 2nd round knockout loss to Holly Holm.

But combat sports writer Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports feels Rousey’s decline began earlier than anyone anticipated, pointing to her ninth consecutive victory when she faced Sara McMann back in 2014.

“She thinks she’s a boxer”.

It’s fair to question whether Rousey’s distraction as a budding A-list movie star may have played a part in her fall from grace in UFC. The 29-year old UFC star took to Twitter on December 31 to encourage Rousey advising her to give it another try.

There has been no lack of advice for Rousey as she contemplates her future and many have written her off after two disastrous losses.

UFC’s biggest names, Nunes and Jon Jones had contrasting opinions with one saying Rousey must retire, while the other suggests she should fight again. We qualify that statement because of Rousey, who’s yet to decide what’s next.

It seems Ronda Rousey’s latest return has everybody talking about the sport again.

Rousey reportedly profited significantly more than champion Nunes.

DeMars doesn’t believe the fight game was made for people with options in their life.

She certainly didn’t earn what Ronda Rousey did, but Amanda Nunes is still the best bantamweight in the world. But you’ve got to have some rounds.
