The aura of invincibility surrounding arguably the sport’s biggest star – “by far”, according to UFC supremo Dana White – was suddenly destroyed as her undefeated record and bantamweight crown were both dramatically stripped away.
Rousey’s incredibly low profile in the immediate aftermath of the fight was to be expected after the devastating nature of the KO, but as the silence continued into 2016 there were even murmurs that retirement could be on the cards. UFC 207 Fight Live Stream
After all, Rousey has already dipped her toe in the acting world and has plenty of alternative potential career avenues to pursue. Luckily for fight fans, her ultimate decision to face Nunes suggests a strong resolution – to scale the heights and regain the title once more – after some tough soul-searching. The media blackout is ongoing and, remarkably, she will not give any interviews ahead of the fight, while there will be no open workouts or press conferences.
Nunes has labelled the challenger “weird” for taking such an unprecedented stand, but it seems Rousey’s message is clear: she wants to do her talking in the octagon. It would undoubtedly be one of UFC’s most iconic moments of all time if she were to lock her famed armbar in on Nunes and secure a sensational comeback triumph. And yet the fear lingers that, as can often be the case with boxers, perhaps Rousey will never quite be the same again after such a brutal defeat.
UFC 207 Live Stream There must be question marks in her mind as she faces a foe who has possibly the fastest hands in the division, a supreme striking repertoire and a black belt in Brazilian jiujitsu. Rather than ease herself back in, ‘Rowdy’ knows she is in for a proper fight. Nunes has come from practically nowhere to carve a fearsome reputation as the bantamweight strap became the proverbial hot potato in Rousey’s absence. The 28-year-old claimed it at UFC 200 by pummelling Miesha Tate into retirement in the champion’s first defence after choking out Holm, who had previously coughed up the title in her first defence after beating Rousey.
The first-ever Brazilian woman to win UFC gold also brings a submission threat plus a nasty ground-and-pound game that Rousey will need to heed if and when she takes her rival to the mat. Most bookmakers still view Rousey as the narrow favourite – but will she deliver on that billing and write another special chapter in the history of the UFC? Make sure you join us from 1am on New Year’s Eve to find out.
