Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey gave the following statement to ESPN today, following her crushing lost to current UFC women’s bamtamweight champion Amanda Nunes on Friday at UFC 207.
“Returning to not just fighting, but winning, was my entire focus this past year. However, sometimes – even when you prepare and give everything you have and want something so badly – it doesn’t work how you planned. I take pride in seeing how far the women’s division has come in the UFC and commend all the other women who have been part of making this possible, including Amanda.
I need to take some time to reflect and think about the future. Thank you for believing in me and understanding”.
