Are you ready to see Ronda Rousey back inside the Octagon?
In an interview on Big Boy TV in Los Angeles, Dana White announced that Ronda will probably be back in November of this year. This creates speculations that Rousey’s comeback fight will be held in no less than the Madison Square Garden in the Big Apple. UFC public relations boss Dave Sholler revealed earlier that if MMA would be legalized in New York this year, the organization is looking at a November event. If it pushes through, then a Ronda comeback would be a perfect come on for the fight card.
Fans of Rousey were hoping to see her on UFC 200 in July, but his longtime coach Edmon Tarverdyan said Ronda needs more time. She has a list of commitments to attend to, and she has to fully recover from her loss to Holly Holm.
Dana White is confident that ‘Rowdy’ will come back twice as strong. He told Big Boy, “She’s very intense. She’s a badass, man. She’ll be back.”
Ronda is expected to face whoever wins the women’s bantamweight title this coming March in the UFC 196. The fight will be between Holly Holm and Miesha Tate, and their match will happen right before the most anticipated McGregor vs. dos Anjos.
The former champ has been talked about all over social media despite her absence in the Octagon. The fighter who just turned 29 years old this week has gained so much attention because of her SNL gig, as well as her leaked nude pictures for a sports magazine. While many support her and her upcoming projects, she has earned quite a number of bashers too. Dana White tries to explain the reason behind this, “She’s one of those polarizing figures that so many people were bummed out that she lost and so many people were happy that she lost. She incites both.”
