Amanda Nunes dished out a savage beating to Ronda Rousey at UFC 207 and the bantamweight champion now believes that loss will signify the end of her career. She had silenced those who felt Rousey would simply walk back into the top spot she had essentially created.
That loss was the first of her professional MMA career and one that Rousey found particularly hard to swallow.
Key moment: In what was largely a boring three-round affair, Kim - in his first fight in 13 months - put enough pressure on Saffiedine to earn his third win in a row.
Rousey's fighting future is now even more of a mystery. Anything. And if the guys wouldn't do something, she would pick up the ball and do it herself. And this is the way she wanted it.
Her target: former champion Ronda Rousey. With a touch of the gloves, they took the center of the Octagon. Or do they disappear? "But because she's a champion now, it's new". Rousey, who has defeated Tate twice, has often said of her bitter rival: "The one good thing Miesha does is she can take a hell of a beating".
Two years ago, this moment appeared to be a longshot.
Where to watch New Year's Eve fireworks in NYC
Ariius is hosting a soiree that includes a champagne toast at midnight, hors d'oeuvres, late night snacks and a photo booth. There also will be a party with desserts and dancing to the music of Protégé and, of course, a champagne toast at midnight.
Rousey's goal previous year was to retire undefeated and seamlessly transition into the next chapter of her life where she would become the highest grossing actor in the world. She's never going to quit. Including the far more-established male competitors.
For those out there that spent the money to watch Ronda Rousey's comeback fight tonight on Pay Per View are probably asking for a refund right about now. Why? She thought she was nothing. She thought no one would care about her because she lost. She thought she was a failure.
"I'm not counting her out, but I am saying if push comes to shove I don't know if her heart is really in it anymore", she said in a recent TV appearance. "Have fun with that.' With Holly, I'll genuinely be happy for her and hope that she accepts her loss in a healthy way and enjoys all the benefits that she got from this fight".
That's nearly impossible to fathom, but she hosted "Saturday Night Live", went on "Ellen" and "Conan" and was on the cover of magazines, all after she lost. That likely won't change after Friday's loss.
Rousey was seen walking out of the Octagon without assistance. She will transition into an acting career. She was guaranteed $100,000 to show and $100,000 additional for the win, plus a cut of the pay-per-view. But she's still a draw.
