Blame uncouth, corrupt NDC officials for humiliating election defeat - Rawlings

Ex-President John Rawlings has blamed what he says is the humiliating defeat of the National Democratic Congress on corrupt, uncouth, and uncultured government officials.

According to him the incumbent government lost the elections way before December 7 but the arrogance of power blinded the Mahama led administration of seeing the writing on the wall.

In his address on the occasion of the 35th Anniversary of the 31st December revolution, the ex-president minced no words in chiding the outgoing administration of deviating from the core principles that brought the NDC into being.

Amanda Nunes absolutely demolishes Ronda Rousey in just 48 seconds

Amanda Nunes needed less than one minute to finish Ronda Rousey with a stunning first round TKO to cap off UFC 207 on Friday night in Las Vegas.
While Nunes entered the fight as the defending champion, she was actually the betting underdog to Rousey, who was stepping back into the Octagon for the first time since losing the title to Holly Holm by knockout last November.
None of that mattered to Nunes once the fight got underway because she came after Rousey with the same kind of aggression that earned her the title back in July when she submitted Miesha Tate at UFC 200.

As soon as the referee said go, Nunes was in Rousey's face looking for punches and within seconds she started landing on the former champion at will.
When the first combination landed, Rousey backed away after being stunned from Nunes' powerful shots and she never recovered.
With Rousey clearly rattled, Nunes just poured on the punishment with a flurry of punches that came in like missiles, one after the af…
