I stopped watching UFC a long time ago. I love UFC and MMA but I can’t watch ’em all the time since their ppv’s are way overpriced.
Anyway, I find this feud kind of interesting so I thought I would respond my thoughts on it. From what I’m reading, Cris Cyborg is dying for a rematch with Amanda Nunes in which she lost to her by knockout last year at UFC 232. She’s been begging for the rematch for a long while but Dana maintains that she doesn’t want the rematch and claims that Cyborg is afraid of losing to Nunes again. From what I’m seeing, Cyborg denies those claims and Cyborg really wants the rematch pretty badly. Like I said, looks like she’s been campaigning for the rematch for a while now.
If she wants the rematch then Dana should give it to her, what’s the problem? Why does Dana have to go out of his way and terminate her contract just because she wants a rematch? That’s all she really wants really.
What is Dana afraid of? Is he afraid of her because she’s different? That’s what it’s sounding like to me. I think the real reason Dana ended up terminating her is ’cause he doesn’t want the way he treated her behind the scenes to get out there… he’s afraid of getting in trouble for his harassment and bullying against her. Either that or he’s scared to death of her actually winning the rematch.
Why does Dana keep putting words in her mouth by saying she doesn’t want the fight when she kept saying publicly she does want it? Her lashing out at him and UFC is a smokescreen to duck a rematch? Really? When fighters want a fight, they really want it. They don’t play around.
With that being said, I stand with Cyborg. I love UFC and MMA, don’t get me wrong but I’m not afraid to say that Dana can be a bit of an asshole.
Well last night on PPV, I watched UFC 207 ’cause I didn’t want to miss the Ronda Rousey vs. Amanda Nunes championship fight. While it was disappointing and sad that Ronda took a good beating and lost, it was still a good fight anyways. I was hoping Ronda would come back in true form and beat Amanda’s ass but instead, the opposite happened. Amanda ended up beating Ronda pretty quick. The fight was very quick. It only lasted a couple of seconds. All it took was a couple of punches for Amanda to win and that was it. The referee stopped the fight. Still a good fight though and it made me like Amanda Nunes even more.
I thought all the other fights were really good too especially Cody Garbrandt vs. Dominick Cruz, that fight right there would have to be the best fight of the night, I would say.
Anyway, back to Ronda’s loss last night, she looked pretty pissed and upset after the fight got over with, though. Ronda seemed upset that the referee stopped the fight so soon and she wanted to keep it going. Ronda didn’t stay after the fight to interview with Joe Rogan and she didn’t even give Amanda a handshake or a hug either. Amanda tried to give Ronda a hug but Ronda and her team were quick to leave the Octagon. Amanda got to hug one of Ronda’s staff members, though. Amanda was just trying to give Ronda respect last night but Ronda wasn’t having it.
So looks like it’s gonna be over for Ronda in UFC. She might get forced to retire soon but we’ll wait to see what Dana White says. She’s probably gonna be done ’cause she lost two fights and I think Ronda is getting too worn out. What’s next for Ronda if she does get forced to retire? Well Ronda will probably act in movies full time, she’ll become a full time actress for sure I think. She can also do some stuff with WWE ’cause WWE wants to sign her pretty badly. Not sure if Ronda is gonna go for a full time WWE run or part time, we’ll have to wait and see. Anyway, if Ronda does get signed for WWE, I can see a Charlotte vs. Ronda match happening at the next Wrestlemania for sure ’cause I believe that’s what they want.
I feel bad for Ronda but she have to learn that there will be other women who are better than her in fighting. I think Ronda just realized that last night. I wish Ronda the best in her future.
