Ronda Rousey Next Ufc Fight
The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion said Tuesday on “The Ellen Show” that she would put a return to the Octagon on the same plane currently as a return trip to the Olympics. Rousey won the bronze medal in judo at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
“I don’t know,” Rousey told Ellen DeGeneres. “I think it’s just as likely as me going back to another Olympics for judo. No one demanded a written resignation from me for judo and I don’t really think the same thing is necessary for fighting. I’m just doing what I enjoy and WWE is what I enjoy right now.”
Rousey made her debut in WWE earlier this year and will have her first match with the pro-wrestling promotion at WrestleMania 34 on April 8 in New Orleans. She’ll team with fellow former Olympian, Kurt Angle, a former wrestling gold medalist, to take on Stephanie McMahon and her husband Triple H. WWE has been building the scripted storyline with the four on-air talents since January.
“It’s like a team,” Rousey said of the choreographed world of WWE. “I’ve never been on a team my whole life. I was a swimmer, that was alone. I did judo, that was alone. I was a fighter, that was alone. With WWE, it’s like a big team. Everybody is working together to try to make it as great as possible.”
Rousey, 31, has not fought since being knocked out in the first round by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in December 2016. It was her second straight knockout defeat after a run as the most dominant women’s MMA fighter ever.
UFC president Dana White said last November that he’d prefer not to see Rousey fight again.
“I wouldn’t want it to happen,” White said. “I care about her. She’s got enough money. She’s got enough money and all that stuff. I don’t want to see it happen.”
Rousey, for her part, seems to be very happy in pro wrestling. She’s a longtime fan of the entertainment medium. And “Rowdy,” said she’s not nearly as nervous going into WrestleMania 34 as she has been in her previous careers as a combat sports athlete.
“I’m nervous, but it’s not like Olympics nervous,” Rousey said. “The worst thing that’ll happen is I’ll look stupid, which is not the worst thing that could really happen. I can’t think of the last time I was so excited about anything. I’m really looking forward to it, you know what I mean?”

She revealed that on the RAW before WrestleMania 35, there was a big moment where she went against orders, in what was a widely praised segment.
In case you didn’t know…
While Rousey hasn’t outright confirmed her retirement, it’s fully expected that she won’t be returning to WWE programming anytime this year. She revealed that she had hand surgery – one that would put her out for months.
Apart from just that, she’s been very public about the fact that she wants to start a family with her husband Travis Browne. With her future uncertain, WWE has decided to move on without Rousey, as it was fully expected…
On the RAW before WrestleMania 35, Rousey, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair got into a massive backstage brawl that wreaked havoc across the arena.
The heart of the matter
If you recall the segment, there was a moment where Rousey and Lynch were handcuffed in the same car. Right after that, Rousey had kicked the window of the car, completely shattering it.
“I accidentally put a dent in the frame. and they were like ‘You can’t break this window now’ and I was like ‘I want to break this window’
She also revealed that when she did kick the window out, one of the glass shards went underneath and somewhat cut her right behind her thighs.
It certainly was interesting to see Rousey admit to one of the “shoot” moments that happened because it actually made for very good television. Breaking the glass added to the shock value and did exactly what the objective was int he first place.
Ronda Rousey will likely not be coming back anytime soon, if at all. Becky Lynch, meanwhile, reigns supreme on both brands while Charlotte Flair continues her run on SmackDown.
