Amanda Nunes wasn’t the only big winner following her 48-second knockout of Ronda Rousey at last Friday’s (Dec. 30, 2016) UFC 207 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Las Vegas, Nevada (see it again here).

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz decided to take a chance and laid down a whopping $50,000 on "Lioness" -- who was the underdog — to retain her title against the former division champ, who came in as favorite despite a previous loss coupled with a year-long layoff.

And after Nunes dismantled "Rowdy" in record time, Ortiz was one happy customer:

He’s no Floyd Mayweather, but it’s still a decent chunk of change.

Indeed, Nunes shocked the world -- but not herself -- following her impressive performance, which just so happened to be her first-ever title defense against the face of women’s MMA; even leaving some people in tears at the T-Mobile Arena, according to Dana White.

As for Rousey, she hasn’t committed to a retirement just yet, but don’t expect to see her inside the Octagon anytime soon.
