The fight between Ronda Rousey and Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 is surely one to watch out for. Nunes’ latest victory over Miesha Tate at UFC 200 was a good start after a yearlong hiatus. Nunes, pumped up for the match had a few things to say about what’s coming and to Ronda herself.

“My message to her is to say thank you, this fight’s going to change my life, my career and I hope she’s ready I know she’s a very tough opponent, but I’m the best in the world,” Nunes told TMZ on Thursday.

The moment UFC president Dana White revealed that Rousey would battle Nunes at UFC 207, several loud opinions against the matchup being made by other fighters. Cris Cyborg and Julianna Pena have the same nature of objections to the upcoming fight, especially with Rousey getting a title shot after her last match got her knocked out. Nunes disagrees, however and sees Rousey as a deserving contender. As per Nunes “She only has one loss and all the UFC champions had rematches right away. I think Ronda Rousey, I think everybody wants to see (this fight) and Ronda Rousey deserves this fight again” she then added “I think it’s wrong. Because she was the dominant athlete. I think she really deserves that.”

More statements from Nunes stated “I know how I’m going to beat Ronda Rousey. I’ve been training for Ronda Rousey since my first fight in the UFC. I don’t know if you know, but I come from the same background as Ronda Rousey. I’ve been training judo my whole career since I started jiu-jitsu. I understand everything Ronda Rousey’s going to bring that day. I don’t think she’s going to be able to deal with my striking. She’s going to be very surprised when I touch her when I connect with my punches.

She’s going to be very surprised when I touch her, when I connect with my punches.”

Nunes overall seems excited to face Rousey as she believes this match will be great for her career, lastly the fighter said:

“I like it. I always fight like that,” Nunes said. “I’ve always been the one everybody thinks aren’t going to win. I’m OK. I’m comfortable. This is going to be hard for Ronda because everybody expects her to win.I’m stronger than ever. I’m 100-percent that I’m going to beat Ronda Rousey — I’m 200-percent.”
