Title: Bruce Buffer: “Amanda Nunes is Chuck Liddell minus the penis”

Author: Fernando Quiles Jr.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announcer Bruce Buffer knows how to use words.

The world of mixed martial arts (MMA) and sports in general was in turmoil when Ronda Rousey’s bid for a second round with the women’s bantamweight title was derailed in 48 seconds by champion Amanda Nunes. “The Lioness” was dominant while “Rowdy” showed no improvement since her brutal knockout loss to Holly Holm in November 2015.

Buffer recently appeared on The Pony Hour podcast (via Bloody Elbow) and spoke about Nunes’ first successful title defense. Despite Rousey’s performance, Buffer believes she took the fight very seriously:

“I thought (Rousey) was focused, she just got her ass done. She arrived in Vegas the previous Monday or Friday, weighing 135 pounds, instead of arriving with 150 or whatever, and was expected to lose 15 pounds in 5 days. It’s concentrated! She came to kill him.

With the punching power of Nunes, Buffer compared the 135-pound queen to UFC Hall of Fame Chuck Liddell. There is, however, a significant difference.

“In the case of Amanda Nunes, who looks like Chuck Liddell with a clitoris. It’s like – and without the penis – she’s a woman who can go back and forth, not hitting you and hitting you in the face, she hitting you in the head. She’ll probably be holding this belt for a long time.

Many provided their theories as to why Rousey didn’t improve in the sport. Some blame her coaches while others believe she was overrated to begin with. Buffer offered his take on what went wrong.

“In Holly’s case, she was told she was invincible. Wrong! “Buffer exclaimed.” No one is invincible. Okay? She entered that next fight, with no visible improvement in the 48 seconds we saw. Flat feet, no head movement, entering in a devastating attacker to fight his battle Bad judgment!
