Ronda Rousey UFC return rumours are shot down by Dana White.
The President of the UFC firmly believes that Rousey’s time in MMA has come to an end as there is nothing left for her to accomplish. Rumours had started to materialise recently with a source close to the WWE Superstar contacting The Daily Mail to reveal that Rousey is looking for a UFC return, but White has bluntly stated this is false.
Speaking with Aaron Bronsteter of TSN Sports, white questioned the credibility of The Daily Mail and went on to say that Rousey now has other priorities:
“Stop reading the Daily Mail, everything that they write is a crock of sh*t Ronda’s having kids! Ronda built this whole thing that’s going on with the women here, then her dream was to go to the WWE, she went there and did everything that she did there and achieved, she’s made sh*tloads of money. She’s moved on with her life,”
Looking to concentrate on the stars of the future rather than rely on the legends of the past, White has also admitted that he doesn’t see Brock Lesnar stepping back inside the octagon either.
What Is Next For Ronda Rousey?
The future of Rousey still remains unclear, with only the former Women’s Champion herself truly knowing what the next steps of her career will be. Varying next steps discussed have ranged from a return to MMA, a return to UFC, a return to acting or taking time away altogether.
Rousey last competed in WWE by losing to Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam and last competed in UFC in 2016 with a loss to Amanda Nunes at the UFC 207 event.
