Ronda Rousey releases statement following UFC 207 loss to Amanda Nunes


Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey issued a statement to ESPN following Friday night’s UFC 207 main event TKO loss to champion Amanda Nunes in Las Vegas.

Rousey was not knocked out like she was against Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015, but the loss was declared at TKO after referee Herb Dean called a halt to the contest at just 48 seconds into the first round.

“I want to say thank you to all of my fans who have been there for me in not only the greatest moments but in the most difficult ones. Words cannot convey how much your love and support means to me.

“Returning to not just fighting, but winning, was my entire focus this past year. However, sometimes — even when you prepare and give everything you have and want something so badly — it doesn’t work how you planned. I take pride in seeing how far the women’s division has come in the UFC and commend all the other women who have been part of making this possible, including Amanda.

“I need to take some time to reflect and think about the future. Thank you for believing in me and understanding.”
