Out UFC Champ Amanda Nunes Celebrates Victory With A Kiss

This weekend Amanda Nunes took on and took out Ronda Rousey in a stunning 48-second span to secure the women’s bantamweight title, before a sold-out crowd at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nunes earned the Ultimate Fighting Championship title last year by defeating title holder Miesha Tate.

After taking down Rousey and seeing off the challenge, Nunes shared a kiss with her girlfriend Nina Ansaroff.

Speaking about their relationship previously, Nunes said:

Nina is the best training partner I have in my life. She is shy… She is going to show everybody. She helps me every day … and I love her.”


Ronda Rousey Embraces Her Imperfections In New Ad: ‘I’m Fine With Not Being Perfect’

Ronda Rousey has teamed up with Reebok to talk about finding strength in those moments of vulnerability, and perfection in her imperfections.

Last year, the UFC fighter was finally deafened in match against Holly Holm. The defeat came as shock to us all, having seen Rousey successfully defended her championship for three years.

In the new campaign, #PerfectNever, is a part of Reebok’s larger Be More Human campaign, and centres around a video (below).


The video stars Rousey first in an elegant dress, showing off her more public face. Then, she transitions to less-glamorous moments full of sweat and grit.

The point: Both of those versions of her are ultimately her. And focusing on what society might consider the “more perfect” scenario denies the reality of what it takes to be fully “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.

Perfect never gets to silence its critics. Perfect never gets a shot at redemption. So yeah, I’m fine not being perfect.”

On top of those issues, there’s the fact that Rousey is no stranger to body-shaming. Like many female athletes, she’s been on the receiving end of a barrage of online negativity.

Speaking at in a press release, Rousey said.

There are a lot of unrealistic standards being put on everyone. I think it’s good to have examples out there who say, ‘You know what, not everyone is always going to like you, but life will go on. You’ll be okay, and you can still love yourself.’”
