Unfortunately, it started sounding in the lead-up to this that the champ's success was going to her head. She looked horrible in this fight and got pounded on until she went down for the count. It's either a wake up call, or it's an end. Her choice.

Just saw the whole fight. Rousey didn't look like she should be in the same ring even. Hope she can bounce back from this. At the same time, it's good to see some competition.

Doesn't look like she's going to be bouncing back anytime soon... :buck2:  I say, take the 3 mil and announce retirement.

Nunes is the Real Deal for sure. I wondered if Rousey was just coming back for a big pay-day after she signed to fight for the title instead of working her way back-up the contender's ladder to number #1. I think she's still got real talent but her head's not in the right place and her desire seems to have faded. She's also become way too predictable in the ring.  :-X

Like in every other division once it has time to mature, the talent level has jumped up. Aggression and judo and an armbar isn't going to get it done anymore, particularly if you don't learn how to defend against strikes. The rumor is that she did absolutely no sparring throughout her training camp, and it certainly looked like that might be true.
