Nothing but respect for our champ-champ. As everyday humans it makes us feel better to know that Amanda Nunes stays wilding out when she has caught a good buzz.
If you knocked out Cris Cyborg, dominated an one-time unstoppable force, and earned UFC double champion status, what would you do? MiddleEasy? Would handle the post-fight celebration exactly how Amanda Nunes did.
Maybe because Nunes’ win came between Christmas and New Year’s, but our GOAT went on an all out bender. Sleeping with the belts. Drinking the belts. Hitting the DMs of famous super models talking about the belts. And of course getting naked with the belts.
The order may be flipped but this is now the only way UFC Double Champions can celebrate their historic win. The bar has been set by Nunes and it’s 100% the Brazilian way of doing things. Love it. Need more of it in MMA.
Which brings us to the story and rumors of Nunes possibly retiring after she stole Cyborg’s soul back in December. It seemed wild at the time and even Rumor Mills that occur on Sunday pre-lunch had to think twice about it.
On one hand Nunes was on the top of the mountain and was about to get paid. Then on the other hand, what else is there left to really do? The heads hanging on Nunes’ wall are legendary.
So about that retirement rumor? Well apparently Amanda Nunes was drunk when she started talking about retirement and one thing lead to another.
The UFC PR team trotting out intoxicated fighters to members of the media? TBH, MiddleEasy fully approves of this scenario and the subsequent rumors that result from drunk Q & A’s.
Earlier this year, Amanda Nunes (@Amanda_Leoa) told a Brazilian outlet that maybe her next fight would be her last. She now says, she didn’t mean that. So, why’d she say it? This might be, pound-for-pound, one of the greatest one-minute clips of any interview I’ve ever done. pic.twitter.com/8ZBGJhfjLy
