She later added: 'I knew I was going to beat [Rousey]. The 28-year-old Brazilian champion also appears to be clutching her bantamweight belt, which she earned in July and fiercely defended against Rousey Friday night.
Rousey's return did not go as planned, however, with the fan favorite subjected to a barrage of punches by Nunes and defeated after only 48 seconds of the first round. She had her time.
