Ronda Rousey is considered by many the greatest female martial artist of all time, but after beating her in 48 seconds last week, UFC bantamweight champions Amanda Nunes believes she is overrated.

The Brazilian welcomed Rousey back to the Octagon 13 months after ‘Rowdy’ suffered her first ever defeat in MMA at the hands of Holy Holm and made the previously unstoppable six-time UFC champion look like an amateur.

And while it is likely women wouldn’t even be fighting in the UFC were it not for Rousey, Nunes has never seen her as a threat.

"I don’t know how Ronda Rousey went too far away in this division," she told TMZ. "I don’t understand why these girls lost to Ronda Rousey.

"I know since my first fight in the UFC I can beat Ronda Rousey, but of course I have to take my time and get my life together and that day was the day, you know, to prove everybody.

"Yes, for sure [she is overrated]. UFC make this happen. They put her on places she’s not at. I know I can beat Ronda Rousey since I say her first fight."

Rousey, who refused to talk to the press before and after the UFC 207 fight in Las Vegas last week, is yet to announce whether or not she will return to the Octagon again.
