"If she wants to make a comeback and get one fight, I think she will do the best she's ever done and I think she'll be victorious", he said. Nunes (15-4) was looking to defend her belt for the first time since winning the belt when she beat Meisha Tate. If injuries weren't there and everything was where it was, we would take that fight and I'm telling you she's too slow for us.
"I wanted the challenge so bad I nearly killed myself trying to make the lowest weight possible just to give this fight to the fans, and she made every excuse for it not to happen".

Ronda Rousey's professional fighting career may not be over; not if her longtime trainer Edmond Tarverdyan has any say in the matter.
Rousey's star power, in a pre-McGregor era, managed to elevate the UFC to previously unheard of heights but like all great titans over the course of history, the fall that she endured as swift and thunderous.
Rousey, Tarverdyan and the WWE aside, it will be interesting to see what comes next for "Cyborg". But all that being said, he's still unsure if it will be enough to lure the 30-year-old back into the UFC. If her body does give her one more fight and she really wants to mentally, she might.
But having the deck stacked against her in a fight against a rival is something that Tarverdyan believes can squeeze one more fight out of Rousey.
Cris "Cyborg" has been undefeated for the past twelve years and has established herself as one of the most vicious knockout artists in the game today.
"Ronda needs a challenge that she really needs to be like this person is no good and I need to prove something to the whole world. I don't know if she'll do it", said Tarverdyan, whose quality of coaching was the subject of criticism from many quarters as Rousey eventually saw her unblemished record tainted.
"She might, but it's 50-50, I would say". She just wants to do so in the squared circle, rather than the Octagon.
Edmond Tarverdyan is unsure if Ronda Rousey, his talented adherent, will ever fight again. Fighting seems to be the last thing on her mind. "I want that fight. I know that. Cyborg is too slow".
