Ronda Rousey’s time in the Ultimate Fighting Championship appears to be at its end after president Dana White admitted the former women’s bantamweight champion is “probably done” in mixed martial arts’ top promotion.
Rousey suffered a second successive defeat when she was knocked out by reigning women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, and White appeared on UFC Unfiltered, where he conceded his gut instinct was that “Rowdy” was finished:
“In the conversation I had with her, if I had to say right here right now — and again, I don’t like saying right here right now because it’s up to her — but I wouldn’t say she fights again. I think she’s probably done. She’s going to ride off into the sunset and start living life outside of fighting.”
Rousey was stopped in just 48 seconds after making her return to the Octagon on December 30, 2016 after more than a year out of action following her loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November, 2015.
