Jon Jones knows a thing or two about facing adversity, and he’s decided to give his two cents after Ronda Rousey’s loss to champion Amanda Nunes.

After a year-long absence from competition, following a devastating knockout loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193, Rousey returned to competition this Friday at UFC 207 to challenge current women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes for her title. The fight didn’t go well for Rousey, as she took a beating on her feet and was stopped by the skillful Nunes in just 48 seconds of the first round.
