Biggest Winners and Losers from UFC 190

The main event was a UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship fight as the champion Ronda Rousey took on the challenger Bether Correia. The co-main event of the evening was a match-up between two MMA legends as Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua took on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Just like at every event, UFC 190 saw a bunch of fighters take a step forward in their career with a win, whereas others were not victorious and had to take a step back for the time being. With that being said, check out our biggest winners and losers from UFC 190 below,

 

Winners

Ronda Rousey

At UFC 190, Ronda Rousey was set to defend her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship against Bethe Correia. Once again, Rousey dominated and defeate Correia via TKO at just 34-seconds of Round 1. Rousey has cleaned out the majority of the division and there is almost nothing left. Once again, she will take on Miesha Tate and will look to defeat her for a third time. There is only one fight that is on MMA fans minds and that is a fight between Ronda Rosuey and Cris ‘Cyborg’, but that will not happen until ‘Cyborg’ can make the bantamweight limit of 135-pounds. Until then, it is likely that Rousey will dominate everyone that steps in front of her like she has done to this point.

 

Demian Maia

At UFC 190, Demian Maia took on an up-and-comer who was on an impressive seven fight winning streak in Neil Magny. Maia proved to be far too much as he dominated the entirety of the fight until he was able to pick up the rear-naked choke submission victory at 2:52 of Round 2. Maia once again proved why he is amongst the best in the world in the welterweight division and will get another highly ranked opponent in his next fight.

 

Losers

Nogueira Brothers

At UFC 190, both of the Nogueira brothers would step into the octagon as Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira would take on Stefan Struve and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira would take on Mauricio Rua. The 39-year-old twins who have both been fighting for many years at the elite level were not victorious at UFC 190. Both fighters loss the unanimous decision victory and have been struggling as of late. Both brothers are MMA legends and have nothing else to prove and with the amount of fights they each have, it must be taken into consideration as to how much they have left if anything at all.

 

Jessica Aguilar

At UFC 190, Jessica Aguilar was set to make her UFC debut against the #1 ranked Claudia Gadelha. It was without a doubt the toughest test of her career and it proved to be exactly that. The former WSOF Women’s Strawweight Champion was blanked on the scorecards as she lost the unanimous decision victory. It was her first loss in almost five years, but it was a learning experience nonetheless. Aguilar will likely get a much easier opponent her next time out, as it doesn’t get much better than Gadelha. Aguilar still has a lot of promise and is amongst the best strawweights in the world, this was just a minor step back for her.
