Dana White went on the show UFC Unfiltered and said that after recent conversations with Rousey that he believes she is done with fighting.
From the interview:
“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.”
“She’s going to ride off into the sunset and start living her life outside of fighting.”
“She’s so competitive that her career and record meant everything to her,” he said. “And then once she lost, she started to say to herself, ‘What the (expletive) am I doing? This is my whole life. This is it? I want to experience and start doing other things.’ And I think that’s what she started to do, and she’s got a lot of money. She’s never going to need money again.”
Ronda Rousey lost to Amanda Nunes by knockout in the first minute of her comeback at UFC 207. Rousey spent a year away from the sport after her first loss in UFC history to Holly Holm at UFC 193. The fight against Nunes was the fifth PPV program that earned over 1 million buys.
