Ronda Rousey suffered her second straight defeat this past weekend at UFC 207, losing to Amanda Nunes in just 48 seconds. With the former champ being such a massive mainstream star, many UFC fighters have weighed in on the loss shortly after the contest.

Jon Jones was among the more high profile fighters to do the same, as he sent out several messages on social media to try and give advice to the former champion. In Jones’ opinion, despite some talk about taking time off or possibly retiring, Rousey should continue fighting.

Many have criticized Rousey’s coach in Edmond Tarverdyan after the two losses. Jones, on the other hand, says she doesn’t necessarily have to leave him, but believes that being in a bigger MMA team could only help her.
