It's time for Rousey to fight the fight of her life

It's time for Rousey to fight the fight of her life”

And if she does lose, none of that honesty about her mindset heading into the bout or the things she's done to prepare for this fight or why she chose to retract herself from the spotlight after being the most visible figure in the UFC over the last three years will matter because everyone will draw their own conclusions based on her performance, as they should.

RONDA WAY BACK Ronda Rousey looks in the shape of her life ahead of UFC 207, but is she mentally ready for Amanda Nunes? Rousey has steered clear of the media and has only spoken publicly a couple of times after admitting that she wants to completely focus on the fight without distractions. "She's like the old Ronda again, but she just had to deal with this thing the way she wanted to deal with it".

In her autobiography, My Fight, Your Fight, Rousey recalls an incident when she assaulted an ex-boyfriend two weeks before her first fight with Miesha Tate.

While a significant uproar in the MMA community resulted from Rousey's media blackout - mainly due to the promotions pulling of Conor McGregor from UFC 200 after he skipped a single press conference, White isn't going to allow anyone except Rousey to forego their obligations.

In that fight Nunes outmuscled Tate and landed heavy punches that dazed the then-champion.

But Rousey says she doesn't care how she looks.

Her Instagram account spoke volumes with a post Wednesday.

"My money is still on Ronda".

Rousey credits her boyfriend, UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, for helping her get through the depression. So I said okay. With a flawless record of 12-0 and a blossoming Hollywood career, the 29-year-old had established herself as not only the biggest female fighter on the planet, but the most popular fighter the UFC had on its books.

During Rousey's 13-month absence from the sport, the UFC underwent various changes, many of which took place behind the scenes. She's never asked for much.

In his mind, Rousey is the better martial artist with the better gas tank.
"We'll see if she's really a champion at heart, if she has that in her", Garbrandt said. Nunes' aggressive style and powerful punching had been feared throughout the UFC's women's bantamweight division since she first walked into the Octagon. "And maybe it'll make her better". You know, assuming she would have gone the distance - which she didn't. The bookmakers' answer to that is no, with Unibet pricing Rousey as a $1.73 favourite while it is $2.20 with Sportsbet and bet365 for Nunes to inflict back-to-back defeats on the former champion. Because of New Year's holiday, the fights are going down on a Friday rather than a Saturday, the night that paying customers are accustomed to. "I don't like to do a lot of interviews", Nunes told the Las Vegas Review. And this is the way she wanted it. "I think Amanda Nunes has shown she does tire". Nunes, who happens to also be the UFC's first openly gay champion, is a talented striker and jiu-jitsu blackbelt with no intention of becoming the latest in Rousey's long line of victims.
