    It only took 48 seconds for reigning champ Amanda Nunes to deal returning former title-holder Ronda Rousey a winning, and possibly career-ending blow.

    Nunes took the lead early in the fight and didn’t let up, recording a dominant victory that saw the referee call a stoppage even though Rousey was still on her feet.

    It could spell the end of Rousey’s once-dominant career, given such a disappointing result after her 13-month hiatus since losing her title to Holly Holm in November 2015.

      I watched Rousey vs Tait earlier and you could see she couldn’t take a hit to the chin. No surprise really

      Rousey took plenty of absolute bombs on her chin and was still (just) standing.

      Nunes could have been stopped with a big right hand counter as she charged in but Rousey doesn’t have the power and was too busy covering up.

      Nunes was just too fast and powerful with her very good right hand.

      I think she just needs a change in coaching. Stand up is her primary weakness and it doesn’t look like they worked on it at all.
