Amanda Nunes Apologizes for Mocking Ronda Rousey After UFC Victory

Fighter says she was “overwhelmed with adrenaline, emotion and hurt at the time”

Amanda Nunes is apparently done beating up on Ronda Rousey, both in and out of the Octagon.

Nunes, who made swift work of beating Rousey during UFC 207 in December — and even swifter work mocking Rousey following the win — has now apologized to her rival.

In an Instagram post published Tuesday, Nunes admitted that she was “overwhelmed with adrenaline, emotion and hurt at the time.”

“I held so much in during the weeks prior to my fight with Ronda. I might have said or posted some things at the time that I now realize was not the right thing to do,” Nunes continued.

Let me take a moment to explain myself. I was overwhelmed with adrenaline, emotion and hurt at the time. I held so much in during the weeks prior to my fight with Ronda. I might have said or posted some things at the time that I now realize was not the right thing to do. I want to apologize to Ronda. Her fans and mine and the UFC as well. Ronda is an amazing athlete and has done so much for this sport, especially for the women. #respect ????????

“I want to apologize to Ronda. Her fans and mine and the UFC as well. Ronda is an amazing athlete and has done so much for this sport, especially for the women. #respect,” Nunes concluded.

Rousey’s UFC comeback ambitions were knocked to the mat during the fight in Las Vegas, when Nunes bested Rousey — who was undertaking her first fight since being defeated by Holly Holm last year — with a first-round technical knockout less than a minute into the match.

Not long thereafter, Nunes posted a doctored photo to her Twitter account, depicting Nunes with one hand clutching a UFC championship belt, and the other guiding a baby stroller containing an infant that, well, looked a whole lot like Rousey.

And now, apparently, Nunes has realized that she was being pretty infantile herself.

See? Who says the world is becoming less civil with Donald Trump as president?
