Amanda Nunes had some heated things to say about Ronda Rousey, following their scrap last month, but now the bantamweight champ has apologized to the star.
Nunes finished Rousey in just 48 seconds at UFC 207, and afterwards, she was critical of the former champ. For example, Nunes claimed she couldn’t understand how anyone had lost to the former champ. The comments raised eyebrows throughout MMA, and even drew the ire of Cat Zingano.
On Tuesday, however, the Brazilian fighter posted the apology below:
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
