Although Ronda Rousey is coming off a KO defeat to Holly Holm, plenty of people still believe she’s one of the greatest fighters in women’s MMA, but evidently Amanda Nunes isn’t one of them…
Recently the Brazilian bantamweight held a Q&A session for fans in Curitiba, as part of UFC 198. Nunes, who is booked to fight the new champ Miesha Tate on July 9th, had this to say about Rousey (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“After I get the belt, I will be well prepared to face anyone they put in front of me,” Nunes said. “What matters the most now is the belt. Winning it, I’ll train specifically for each opponent, and I will be ready for Ronda, for sure, because she’s no big deal. She just lost, and will lose again if she fights me.”
Now does Nunes really believe “Rowdy’s” not so tough? Hard to say. It will be interesting to see, however, if “Lioness” can get by Tate at UFC 200, who has been defeated by Rousey twice before.
It remains to be seen when the former champ Rousey will fight next.
