UFC 207: Ronda Rousey’s Taking “Time to Reflect And Think About The Future”, Following Devastating Loss
By FCF Staff
Following her quick and one-sided loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, Ronda Rousey has announced she’s going to take some time to reflect about her future.
Nunes rocked Rousey moments into their bout, and quickly brought about a stoppage with follow up punches. The fight was Rousey’s first since she was viciously KO’d by Holly Holm last October.
Rousey didn’t participate in any interviews following the defeat, and did not attend the post-fight presser. But, recently the former bantamweight champ released the following statement to ESPN:
“I want to say thank you to all of my fans who have been there for me in not only the greatest moments but in the most difficult ones. Words cannot convey how much your love and support means to me,”
“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.”
