Would Nunes have got more attention if she had been the first fighter to beat Rousey?

    I feel the impact on Holm`s win over Ronda was bigger than the reaction to when Nunes stopped Rousey, if Nunes had met Rousey instead of Holm and then knocked her out, would she have got more attention for beating Ronda than she did when becoming the second fighter to stop Rousey?

    I think shes got plenty of attention. especially since svenchenko is a weight class beow her and clearly beat her in the second fight. They call nunes the goat. shes not the real goat so id say she got plenty of attention she didnt deserve.

    Nunes has improved since her fight with Chenko, that is the only fighter that would stand a chance v Nunes, name one female fighter that was better than Nunes.

    Holm showed it could be done, and how. Nunes followed in her footsteps.

    Agree with you that Shev beat Nunes in their 2nd fight and she's way smaller than her. Imo Shev is the p4p best woman's fighter not Nunes.

    No, Holm used movement and finished with a leg kick, Nunes finished Rousey just like she finished Cyborg, she`s one of the best female strikers in the game and Rousey`s footwork wa pathetic, she couldn`t get away.
