Ronda Rousey has managed to stay away from the public eye for the most part since her brutal UFC 193 KO loss to Holly Holm. Aside from it being revealed that she would be hosting Saturday Night Live, Rousey hasn’t made many public appearances.
Since her loss to Holm, Conor McGregor KO’d Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds at UFC 194 to claim the UFC featherweight championship, and it was announced that McGregor would be challenging lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos for his UFC lightweight championship.
Despite all of that, UFC President Dana White still believes Rousey is the biggest star in the UFC.
He spoke to Yahoo! Sports:
“Ronda means a lot to the UFC and to this sport. As in everything. Everything this woman does. She’s an unbelievable athlete, personality, friend, partner, you name it. Ronda Rousey is amazing.”
“Uh, yea. You know … I think Ronda Rousey is the biggest star in the UFC, but let me tell you what, Conor McGregor is nipping at her heels.”
