UFC President Dana White famously stated on TMZ a while back that women would never fight in the UFC, then Ronda Rousey came around and the perception of women competing in the UFC was changed forever.
However, after an appearance on The Ellen Show, it seems that the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion’s career is winding down, something that White echoed in an interview with TMZ.
“I don’t want to take the wind out of her sails. I’ll let her say her own stuff. Obviously I know what’s going on, but yeah, it’s winding down for Ronda. That’s up to her to say (how many fights she has left), but she’ll have enough for us to still enjoy watching her. She made a lot of money. She accomplished what she set out to do. And she loves acting. She loves acting. She’s good at it. If she dedicated herself to it, she would be even better at it. I think when she says she’s done, she’s done. She stopped doing Judo and moved on to Mixed Martial Arts, and I think when she’s done with that, she will probably move on to acting,” White said.
Rousey hasn't fought since losing her title in spectacular fashion to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015. Rousey claims she's been in training since August.
Ronda Rousey will be competing at UFC 207 against UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes, which is taking place on Friday, December 30 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
