Since Ronda Rousey was knocked out cold by Holly Holm at UFC 193 last year, there has been much speculation as to whether or not Rousey will return to the Octagon.
While initial reports stated that Rousey would be returning to the Octagon after filming a series of movies, the former champ’s return has continually been pushed back.
After Miesha Tate won the bantamweight championship from Holly Holm at UFC 196, Rousey reportedly told UFC President Dana White that she ‘better get back in the gym.’
That didn’t sit too well with Tate, who spoke on a recent interview on UFC Fight Pass:
“Some people have been saying that she’s said, ‘I’ll come back for one fight against Miesha Tate because I know that I can beat her, and then I’m retiring. That she doesn’t want to fight Holly (Holm). I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I have heard that. If it is true, I find it disrespectful. Do I think she’ll come back the same? Something tells me no. I think that’s just my take on the interviews I’ve seen her do. I feel like she’s somewhere else other than fighting. I don’t feel like this is her No. 1 drive anymore.”
