UFC News: Ronda Rousey had to be consoled after recent face off with Amanda Nunes
MMA analyst Robin Black of The Fight Report reported that Ronda Rousey was “very upset” in the back, and needed to be consoled after her face-off with Amanda Nunes in the final UFC 205 press conference. In case you didn’t see what happened, here is the clip
