Ronda Rousey Gets Knocked The F---- Out Again

You TransGriot readers know I'm not a fan of WMMA transphobe Ronda Rousey, and gleefully did the happy dance when Holly Holm knocked her the f**k out with 'The Kick Heard Round The World' during UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia.  

When she crashed to the canvas after that kick, it was not only her first loss after 12 straight wins, but her air of invincibility also crashed with it.

Last night Rousey got in the octagon after a layoff of over a year since that November 2015 fight.   She was taking on current bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes of Brazil in a controversial  UFC 207 main event bout in Las Vegas that would be a crossroads fight for her.

It was controversial because back in October, Julianna Pena, pissed off because as the number #3 ranked UFC bantamweight fight with an 8-2 record and 4-0 in UFC competition, felt she got bypassed for the title shot against Nunes she believed she'd earned.

Pena sounded off about her unhappiness with being bypassed.

Never in the history have I ever heard of somebody have a no-controversy brutal knockout, then quit the sport, and then comeback and get a title shot right away. The girl is mentally weak and Amanda Nunes is going to f--king knock her out and expose her ass. She's literally the worst fighter on the roster, and I can't stomach the fact that I'm not getting the title shot.

Amanda Nunes lands punches while Ronda Rousey is against the cage during UFC 207
Rousey getting paid $3 million for this bout while the champ Nunes got $100,000 probably added to Pena's pissivity about being bypassed at well.

The cash Rousey got paid along with the media attention the challenger was getting probably pissed off Amanda Nunes as well.

Pena looks like Jeane Dixon now, because it only took the now 14-4 Brazilian champ 48 seconds of the first round and serving up a steady diet of punches to Rousey's face to send her to her second straight loss via TKO and easily defend her title.
Amanda Nunes, Ronda Rousey
Nunes retains her UFC world bantamweight championship belt, and the loss starts the questions all over again with people who cover the UFC and WMMA about Rousey, her coaches, her approach to this fight and whether she was mentally ready to come back into the Octagon.

Hey,, karma is a you know what.

Congrats to the champ Amanda Nunes for successfully defending her title and giving me an opportunity to do another schadenfreude laden happy dance
