Ronda Rousey Rules Out UFC Return, Focuses on Motherhood

by | Sep 4, 2023 | MMA

Ronda Rousey made history in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) by playing a crucial role in persuading Dana White to include women in UFC fights. In 2013, she became a champion and successfully inaugurated the women’s bantamweight division, competing in the UFC until 2016 when she decided to retire after being defeated by Amanda Nunes. Two years later, she was honored with induction into the organization’s Hall of Fame.

Following her retirement from MMA, Ronda Rousey found success in WWE during two stints with the pro-wrestling company. With the expiration of her contract, which occurred earlier this month, there were speculations about a potential return to the UFC, especially with the proximity of UFC 300, scheduled for the first half of 2024.

However, Dana White, in a press conference held on Wednesday, dismissed any rumors about the former champion’s comeback to the UFC.

He stated, “Ronda is dedicating herself to motherhood. Ronda played a crucial role in promoting women’s fights here, so she fulfilled her dream of competing in WWE. She went there, achieved everything she could, made a lot of money, and is now moving forward with her life.”
