Rory MacDonald wasn’t the only fighter to leave his gloves in the cage today.
Nina Nunes, formerly known as Nina Ansaroff, announced her retirement after picking up the split-decision victory at UFC San Diego earlier this evening
Nunes largely picked apart Cynthia Calvillo in her women’s Flyweight debut and likely would have been ranked by next week as a result
but she’s instead opting to focus on raising a family with her wife, UFC double champion Amanda Nunes.
Back in 2018, Nunes actually had some major momentum in the Strawweight division.
A four-fight win streak culminated in a victory over Claudia Gadelha
proving her one of the division’s best sprawl-and-brawl fighter.
That reputation was put to the test against wrestling master Tatiana Suarez
After that loss, injury and childbirth kept Nunes away from the cage for a couple years.
