Rousey Upset To Point She Had To Be Consoled After Intense Face-Off With Nunes In NYC

Well, apparently there was more than meets the eye regarding the way Ronda Rousey reacted immediately after facing off with UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes at the official UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor ceremonial weigh-ins held in New York City earlier this month.

For those who missed it, Joe Rogan told the fans inside Madison Square Garden to stick around after the final weigh-in for UFC 205, as they would be doing a special face-off for the UFC 207 main event featuring the return of one of UFC’s all-time biggest stars.

After introducing a special “She’s Back” video package to hype the return of Rousey and preview her title fight against Nunes scheduled for December 29th in Las Vegas, Nevada, Rogan called both Nunes and Rousey out to the stage for a special face-off in front of the media and fans in attendance.

Immediately after the face-off, Rogan conducted an interview with the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, who spoke of preparing for the Rousey fight in particular her entire life. When Rogan went to interview Rousey, she wasn’t there.

According to Dana White, it was Rogan who made the spontaneous call to interview the fighters, as the UFC President claimed that Rousey and Nunes were only supposed to square off and that Rogan took it upon himself to interview them. The UFC boss referred to the situation as a production error that made Rousey look bad, claiming it was simply a misunderstanding.

Rousey stormed off right after the staredown, seemingly upset about something. When White tried to stop her from exiting the stage prematurely, she simply shrugged him off and kept on walking.

Clearly something was up.

According to Dave Meltzer, the longtime editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and writer at MMAFighting.com, her first face-off and public appearance of its’ kind got to Rousey to the point that she was visibly upset afterwards.

Meltzer recently mentioned that Rousey was so upset and emotional following the face-off with Nunes that she had to be “consoled” after the appearance, her first promotional appearance around a fight since the build-up to the Holly Holm fight, which culminated with Rousey being knocked out by a head kick in a record-setting event in Melbourne, Australia.

For those who missed the intense face-off between Nunes and Rousey from the official UFC 205 ceremonial weigh-ins in New York City earlier this month, you can watch a complete video recap right here at MMANews.com by clicking here.

Rousey will look to get back the title that she introduced to the public as the first-ever UFC Women’s Champion of any kind when she meets current title-holder Nunes in the main event of UFC 207: Nunes vs. Rousey. The show is scheduled to take place live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, December 30th.
