UFC 207, held last night in Las Vegas, Nevada, could have been Ronda Rousey’s big comeback following her stunning loss to Holly Holm in late 2015. The judoka faced bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, who simply didn’t acknowledge the biggest female MMA star, dealing her a devastating 48-second loss. Besides the title, that netted Nunes an extra 50 thousand dollars for the night’s best performance.

The co-main event saw the men’s bantamweight belt change hands. Challenger Cody Garbrandt defeated champion Dominick Cruz via unanimous decision (48-46, 48-47 and 48-46). The duel was deemed the fight of the night, yielding each fighter a bonus of 50k.
