Ronda Rousey on UFC return: 'WWE is what I enjoy right now'

14 March 2018

Ronda Rousey has never officially announced her retirement from mixed martial arts, but she came pretty close during a recent appearance on "The Ellen Degeneres Show".

It's unknown why WWE initially had her advertised for every episode of RAW before Mania, but then at the last second change their minds and remove her from the schedule.

When asked if she would eventually go back to the UFC, she said that she didn't know and it would be like returning to the Olympics for judo. Kudos to the WWE for doing that, despite the absences of Lesnar and Rousey.

For months after Rousey was taken out by Amanda Nunes in 2016, there was seemingly, endless speculation, as to whether the former bantamweight champ would fight again.

"I can't think of the last time I was so excited for anything", Rousey said of her upcoming match.

At UFC 193 in November 2015, Rousey was upset by Holly Holm, losing via second-round TKO and surrendering her title. Rousey will be competing at WrestleMania 34 teaming up with Kurt Angle to face Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. WWE legends Brock Lesnar and CM Punk both made the journey - with varying degrees of success - so it isn't beyond the realm of possibility that the 31-year-old Rousey could one day do the same.

"One other thing, and that is this word of respect and so forth and the lack of it, let me just say that based on what just happened Roman Reigns has been temporarily suspended". "Really looking forward to it".

Do you think Ronda Rousey will ever entertain another fight in the UFC or is her career finished? WWE seems to be slowly developing Rousey inside the ring for a future singles run.
