While the UFC brass may want former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to fight at UFC 200 in July, her nutritionist Mike Dolce has other plans.

Dolce has been a role member of Rousey’s camp for quite some time, handling the nutrition & weight cutting aspect of Rousey’s game plan.

While Rousey may not be medically cleared to fight at UFC 200 yet, Dolce doesn’t want Rousey to fight.

He spoke to MMAJunkie:

“No way – absolutely not. Personally, it makes absolutely no sense for any athlete who is TKOd.”

They need a minimum – a minimum – of three months no contact,” he said. “And then they need another three-month period of light contact just getting back into the gym again. That puts us at six months, which is May (2016). And then you get into more intense training. That’s even before training camp kicks in.”

Only time will tell whether Rousey will be able to fight at UFC 200.
