Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes has hit out at Ronda Rousey over her behaviour claiming that she is a weak person. This comes as Rousey made an appearance after an absence of almost a year for the UFC 207 weigh-in at the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York.
The Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) superstar came on to the stage without a smile or even an acknowledgment to the fans and reporters who were cheering for her and made a quick exit post the weigh-in.
Her behaviour was a surprise to Nunes, who expressed disappointment claiming she would never want to be Ronda Rousey.
"This is never going to happen with me. The way I sit down with your reporters now, that's going to happen for a long time, because I'm going to be the champion for a long time. When we were at the beginning of our careers we needed you. I got the belt, I'm going to stay the same. I don't want to be Ronda Rousey. She doesn't want to talk to nobody. This doesn't make any sense. You want to be, like that? I want to be the best and be normal. I want to stop and sign pictures. This is the way a champion has to be", Nunes said as quoted by Los Angeles Times.
The American fighter has been out of action since November 2015 after she suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Holly Holm at UFC 193. Holm knocked Rousey out with a vicious head kick, inflicting the first loss of Rousey's career.
The 29-year-old did not take the loss too well. She even admitted that she thought of committing suicide post the fight.
"Life is like that, you sometimes have to go back to nothing and work your way back, and I think people like to see that. Kids look up to Rousey. She looks weak as a person now. She's not saying anything. It's like she's forgotten about everybody. She doesn't know how to take it", the Brazilian added.
