Ronda Rousey

During the UFC 199 broadcast this past weekend, it was announced that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, who currently competes in the WWE, would be making his return to MMA after nearly 5 years away from the sport.

Lesnar, who will still be making an appearance at the next WWE pay-per view this summer, being granted permission from the WWE to fight at UFC 200 could very well be a move of good faith from the WWE, who reportedly are hoping to secure former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey for a match at WrestleMania 33.

Forbes has the story:

“WWE is also hopeful that they will be allowed to use Ronda Rousey at ‘WrestleMania 33′ in Orlando, Florida,” the article states. “While her in-ring segment at ‘WrestleMania 31′ with ‘The Rock’, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H was a memorable moment, WWE is hoping they can secure Rousey for an actual match at their biggest event of the year.”

The question is, do you think the UFC will allow Rousey to compete at WrestleMania?
