Ronda Rousey vs Amanda Nunes: Super Street Fighter II edition

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

The sport of Mixed Martial Arts has been around a lot longer than most people believe, however; it was introduced to the world on a cold evening in Denver, Colorado on November 12, 1993, and called the Ultimate Fighting Championship.  The premise was beautiful in its simplicity: to simply answer the question of which martial art is most effective.

Fast forward over 20 years and we now have a sport that jockeys for top position in popularity in many countries. Although the sport has evolved, the original question that was set out to be answered is still one that intrigues people to this day.

However; this phenomenon has been happening long before the Ultimate Fighting Championship and can find it’s origination and popularity in the world of video games.  One of the most popular fighting games of the early 90s was played on the 16 bit Super Nintendo gaming console and was titled Super Street Fighter II.

At UFC 207, which took place on Friday, December 30, 2016, we all witnessed one of the greatest women’s fighters of all time get destroyed, embarrassed, and made to look like she was out of her element when Amanda Nunes dismantled Ronda Rousey in merely 48 seconds…but how would this contest have played out in a different reality?

Well, have no fear, in the video below we get to see exactly how this contest would have played out in the infamous world of classic Nintendo’s Super Street Fighter II.  The rule set is a little bit different than that of the unified rules of Mixed Martial Arts but the intrigue and entertainment are all present.

So check out Amanda Nunes vs Ronda Rousey: Super Street Fighter II edition below!
