There is nothing worse than kicking a person when they’re down. I stand corrected. The only thing worse than kicking a person when they’re down is having the person who nearly slapped them into unconsciousness kick them while they’re down.
Just like in last Friday’s shootout, UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes (pictured) is pulling no punches when it comes to Ronda Rousey after humiliating the once-“World’s Most Dominant Athlete.”
While Nunes showed grace inside the cage after pulverizing Rousey with a barrage of bombs by saying she thanked Rousey for paving the way for women’s MMA in the UFC, Nunes has been relentlessly attacking Rousey’s skills ever since.
It first started at the UFC 207 post-fight press conference where Nunes claimed Rousey’s illustrious MMA career was over after getting embarrassed for the second consecutive outing. And if Rousey dared request a rematch, “the same thing is going to happen” because Rousey can’t box worth a lick.
Shortly after the presser wrapped, Nunes, or someone who had access to the Brazilian’s verified Twitter account, posted this:

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, in steps an interview with TMZ Sports. Nunes dumped all over Rousey’s once-untouchable résumé, claiming the “Rowdy” one is merely a product of the UFC’s powerful marketing machine.
“Yes, for sure [she’s overrated],” Nunes stated. “UFC make this happen. They put her in a place she’s not at, but I know I can beat Ronda Rousey since I saw her first fight.”
It gets better – or worse, depending on how you want to look at it.
“I don’t know how Ronda Rousey went too far in this division,” Nunes added. “Honestly. I don’t understand why those girls lost to Ronda Rousey. I know since my first fight in the UFC I can beat Ronda Rousey, but of course I have to take my time and put everything together.
“That day was the day to prove to everybody and I did it.”
It was once considered taboo to talk about Rousey in this fashion, because nobody wanted to poke the bear. However, those days are long gone now, and nobody knows that better than “The Lioness.”
