    Pretty impressive there. She certainly retired Miesha Tate right there in the cage. All signs point to Ronda being done after a 48 second tko. Has any other fighter done that? Will Nunes retire anyone else?

    Next fight will likely be against the winner of Shevchenko and Pena. They're both young and could lose a TS and bounce back so I don't see them going anywhere, but it's possible that Cat Zingano could win a couple and have the following shot as she has a win over the current champ. If Cat loses, that two title shots lost and she's older and has kids; it could be the mark for her to call it quits too

    Miesha was an early retirement though, she is still relatively young

    might even return after a couple years

    not really early for a women.. remember most of them want to have kids and stuff, cant go doing that when you are 40 something (well you can, but you know what i mean)

    And before the fight Nunes said she wanted Ronda to keep fighting even if she lost. Well, Amanda, you didnt give her much of a choice!

    I actually thought Amanda's potentional short coming for this fight was that she would be too nice , too happy, too gay, and Ronda would be all vinegar and cutthroat , didnt matter. Nunes switched it on

    Technically Tate retired after Pennington. During the match I guess she decided she didn't want to do it anymore.

    Also technically Rousey hasn't retired.

    She certainly looks better in this picture. I wonder why? Oh that's right. Her face is covered.

    She kicks ass but her face is ass so I guess it's all relative.
