“In my opinion, I think she is. I think her stand-up is light years ahead of Ronda’s.┬áBut obviously Ronda is super talented. The best. [Amanda] would have to use good footwork and score and move and try to stay off the ground, because Ronda is a phenom on the ground. But I don’t think Ronda’s stand-up is at Amanda’s level.”

Ronda Rousey stepped into the octagon with Bethe Correia at UFC 190 with every intention to make her suffer for twenty five minutes before ending her night. Instead, we got another quick and devastating knockout from the champion in less than forty seconds.

No matter how impressed fans were by her performance, ATT coach Mike Brown told MMAFighting thinks his student, Amanda Nunes, has striking that is lightyears ahead of the champion’s.

Nunes’ win over Sara McMann was impressive, but do you think she is on the path to dethrone Rousey? Or will she just another notch in the champion’s belt? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comment section below!
