    She is one of the most unprofessional fighters in the history of the sport. I don't wish misfortune on anyone but get your shit together.

    It's tough to be a woman in this sport.

    Oof. Not a huge market for wmma, either. I don’t feel bad though. She messed with the lives of fighters by pulling out and canceling.

    Yeah this one's highly expected. At least she got to be a UFC champion for one night, with only 6 career fights. Not a lot of fighters and vets gets to say that. Good luck to Nicco on her future endeavors.

    This is true...but! Montano just plain sucks. She's untalented and thoroughly unprofessional. They cut Rumble for missing weight too many times and he's actually good at what he does.

    I generally don't like celebrating someone losing their employment opportunities. But it's been pretty clear Nicco did not belong where she was. She couldn't even make it to fight night way more often than she actually could. Costing the promotion a booked fight on multiple occasions, and denying her opponent their promised exposure and pay day. That's just not professional. Best to find something else to do with your life that you can handle.
