Ronda Rousey is set to return to action when she faces Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in an attempt to regain the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title. The former champ took some time off from the sport after her undefeated streak was broken when she suffered a knockout loss at the hands of former boxing world champion Holly Holm.
But this time, the other big stud of the UFC, Conor McGregor has some pre-fight advice for Rousey.
According to Bjpenn.com, Conor McGregor expressed his thoughts on Ronda Rousey’s return and encouraged her en route her journey back to the Octagon, while interviewed by Sports Illustrated he was quoted as saying:
“I’d tell her to go shut them all up now, Shut them all up. Go and stake your claim again.”
“I wish Ronda nothing but the best, it’s good to see her back,” he continued. “Some people take defeat and losses a certain way. You see how some fighters take losses. I’m happy she is ready to go again and I wish her well.
McGregor continued to back Ronda Rousey and expressed his excitement for the upcoming bout:
“Go and shut these people up now. Go and get what you began back. I’m excited to see how it unfolds.”
Conor McGregor is getting ready for his fight against Eddie Alvarez in an attempt to become the first fighter to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously. The two champions will fight at UFC 205 in the world’s most famous arena Madison Square Garden, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Dana White, on the other hand, has recently promised on FS1 that Ronda Rousey will fight her longtime rival Cris Cyborg if she wins her fight with Amanda Nunes. But also states that Ronda’s main goal currently is to regain her title back.
Ronda Rousey was the inaugural Women’s Bantamweight champion and defended it six times before losing it to Holm. Since her loss, three new champions have emerged out of that division.
