Amanda Nunes completely and utterly smashed Ronda Rousey, and maybe it was a surprise that she did it so quickly and thoroughly and maybe it wasn’t. Either way, she had just beaten the woman who had made Nunes even having a UFC belt possible, so Nunes should’ve shown some respect for her fallen foe.
She didn’t exactly do that.
But Nunes now realizes that she should have at least said something nice about Rousey. So here she is apologizing for her gaff.
Let me take a moment to explain myself. I was overwhelmed with adrenaline, emotion and hurt at the time. I held so much in during the weeks prior to my fight with Ronda. I might have said or posted some things at the time that I now realize was not the right thing to do. I want to apologize to Ronda. Her fans and mine and the UFC as well. Ronda is an amazing athlete and has done so much for this sport, especially for the women. #respect
