Amanda Nunes Says Rousey is ‘Overrated,’ Not Sure How Anybody Lost To Her (Video)
After dominating the former Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey in just 48 seconds at UFC 207, Amanda Nunes has not held back on her trolling of Rousey. She continued on Thursday when speaking to TMZ.
After beating her, Nunes says she has no idea how Rousey dominated the division for so long. She also doesn’t know how anybody ever lost to her.
“I don’t know how Ronda Rousey [went on] to win this division,” she said. “I don’t understand how those gals lost to Ronda Rousey.” She added: “I knew since my first fight in the UFC I could beat Ronda Rousey.”
From there, she continued her relentless trash talk. When she was asked if beating Rousey was easier than she expected it to be, she said that it was. “Yeah!” she said. “Actually my [UFC 200 fight against] Miesha Tate was harder than training for Ronda Rousey.”
She was then asked if she thinks Rousey is—gasp—overrated. “Yes! For sure,” she said. “UFC made this happen. They put her in a place she’s not at. I [knew I could] beat Ronda Rousey since I saw her first fight.”
