Ronda Rousey’s fighting days are far from over.
We haven’t seen or heard much from Ronda Rousey after her devastating loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. This being her second straight loss led many to believe she’d be hanging up her gloves. UFC president Dana White hinted in that direction commenting: “In the conversation I had with her, if I had to say right here right now – 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 her life outside of fighting.”
However, a few months after White’s comments, it seems that Rousey, the UFC first women’s bantamweight queen, may be planning on returning to the Octagon.
Yesterday evening, well-respected Strength and Conditioning coach Dan Garner revealed that he’s teamed up with the Olympic bronze medallist.
“Wanted to give a good welcoming post to Ronda Rousey who has just recently joined the team, and is all set for the comprehensive nutritional programming process with myself,” he said in a Facebook post.
“Excited to have her on board and to accomplish some great things with her this year. Let’s go!”
The last part of Garners’ post, in which he says he and Rousey are looking to make waves ‘this year’, has been interpreted by many as a sign that ‘Rowdy’s’ fighting days are far from over.
Miesha Tate has also said this month that she would only come out of retirement for a Rousey-Tate Trilogy. Do you think we could see Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate III this year?
