    Now that the fight is over, Chael's comments seem interesting indeed. Yes, Amanda won, but also was clearly caught off guard by GdR;s striking and had to take it to the ground. It seemed to me the first sign of vulnerability in a long while.

    I love that. I’ve said for years that there is no such thing as confidence, just ignorance.

    Can you make a video on what it was like for you to fight? Your nerves, did you doubt yourself walking in? You always presented yourself as very confident. Now that you are finished I'd like to hear what it was really like for you and what the mindset was like for you going to battle. Hearing Darren Till say he was going to fake an injury before the fight made sense to me. I remember wrestling and feeling that way and when it was over wanting to do it again. The mental warfare on me personally was very rough just with wrestling.


    I'll say what I said on twitter on here
    How is it that a black belt in #jujitsu can't finish off someone that has zero takedown much less grappling skills, literally a #UFC 1 one dimensional fighter, WHILE ON THE GROUND?! Plus almost got choked out?! Yo Gracie family and jujitsu nut huggers, what's up?!?! ( O_o)

    I hate the pound for pound list too (The way its used by UFC). Although I do like the idea of the term. Basically I agree with Chael. I only put fighters like GSP, The Lioness, The Answer, The Natural, The Phenom, Rumble, Superman, The Diamond, Gamebread, The Last Imperor, The Notorius One, The Gangster From West Linn Oregon. others but those immediately come to mind.

    Cyborg is still the p4p right now. Lets see if Amanda wins her next fight thats not against a total can, aka Germaine, Raquel, etc. Plus cyborg almost laid her out before she got laid out herself and that fight wouldnt go the same again. And prime vs prime Cyborg beats Nunes 6-4 at very least imo.

    Amanda could not stand germaine standing... If both lady were fighting full kickboxing amanda would get knock out by germaine 100%

    I think Amanda's stock actually went down this fight IMO, when I seen she started to gas vs germaine it reminded me of old fights I seen of her where she would get very woozy on her feet when tired. I think if theres a female fighter who can whether the initial storm of nunes and then can keep on their feet in the later rounds like germaine was unable to do. They will have Amanda's number. In the way nate diaz beat connor in the first fight. Amanda's will can be broken. I dont know who this girl is who will do it. But I believe it will happen.

    Just for the sake of discussion couldn’t a argument be made for the bullet? I do however for the record believe Amanda is the female goat

    Chael..I think you confused a lot of people with this segment lol. Confidence is a main component in any competition." If you have no confidence in yourself, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started." ( Marcus Garvey quote). You make it sound like having confidence is a bad thing. I believe Amanda was saying that she's more confident now then she has ever been. It's not that she never had confidence. There are levels of confidence. I believe every person on the planet is confident in something, some more than others.

    Chael......just stop bro. No we don't need one hell of an explanation. I love Amanda Nunes. The GOAT is Jon Jones but you hate JJ. He has never lost a fight.....the steroid thing is a fricking sham and if you took the time to study we all know he didn't actually pop steroids or inject anything. JJ IS DA GOAT PERIOD.

    Confidence is a load of crap? Ok, what's the opposite of confident? Weak and insecure. Right, and maybe that's why you never won a title, but Amanda did? She believes in herself, and you don't. One has a title, the other does not. So stick with your weakness and insecurity, Chael, and let's see how much further it gets you. Unbelievable.

    That counts out Jon Jones as the #1 Pound for Pound fighter bc he’s 6”4 and walks around at 240lbs but fights a 205 bc he’s a coward with no balls he has only fought guys smaller than him he’s never fought someone bigger.

    She didn't fought as great as she did with holly holm and Rhonda Rousey. Her stand up really needs to improve dramatically to knock out the iron lady again and other higher level strikers if there are any.

    I love your opinions Chael but your forgetting about Valentina... She's just as dominant to a point where her fights aren't even competitive. She beat Nunes in their last fight and got screwed by the judges while being the substantially smaller girl. She also fights at multiple weights and it's always a massacre

    I want to be that foolish man and say I wasn’t impressed with Amanda in that fight! She showed her striking is swinging for the fence and pray she lands and her ground game was just as bad!

    Women can’t be considered p4p because unranked ufc male fighter would smash Nunes. It’s just biology. Iron Lady won that fight, Nunes just laid on her for octagon control, didn’t do shit from guard and got destroyed on her feet.

  • Leopoldino De Almeida

    Chael is on speed but I agree she is the pfp of all times.

    Her result against Germaine proves what you say. The Amanda we saw here is not the Amanda that demolished her previous opponents. She seemed too confident. Overconfident even. Nevertheless, and ironically, watching Germaine fight showed that all she needed was some confidence. She had many moments where she stunned Amanda during the fight. It seemed to me like she was on survival mode, that she was only glad she made it all five rounds. But when she got Amanda on that submission armbar she was almost surprised she was there and could not believe it. And because of this she did not capitalize on it. Likewise, Amanda seemed surprised to be in that situation and surprised she managed to get away. Before the fight, I thought Germaine was going to be carrion meat. But she had a real chance to beat Amanda.

    You only gain confidence through repetition..When something that was originally foreign, and uncomfortable, become less foreign, and less comfortable....It can only become those things after youve failed, and failed..and failed some more.

    Without confidence you don't have things like grit and determination. You need to have confidence that you CAN do it, not necessarily confidence that you will. Without that confidence people give up and never try.
