Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has been on an indefinite hiatus from the Octagon since being brutally knocked out at the hands of Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 193 back in November.
While Rousey was initially expected to film several movies in Hollywood, and then return to the Octagon, the former champ’s return has been continuously pushed back as her film schedule gets more and more time consuming.
Recently, it was revealed that Rousey wouldn’t be returning at the UFC’s highly anticipated inaugural Madison Square Garden event at UFC 205. Despite that, this photo of Rousey has emerged, showing the former champ looking to be in fight shape!
This comes on the heels of UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, who is dating Rousey, stating that he feels bad for whoever Rousey’s opponent is when she steps back into the Octagon.
Newly crowned UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes has stated that she is interested in fighting Rousey when she returns. In addition top ranked women’s bantamweight Juliana Pena has also stated that she would like to welcome Rousey back to the Octagon when the former champ decides to make her highly anticipated return, which UFC President Dana White believes will be bigger than McGregor vs. Diaz II.
