I Won’t Officially Retire from MMA
… But, I’m Done.

Ronda Rousey has essentially announced her retirement from MMA — even though she won’t officially say the words, “I’m retired.”
It all went down on the ‘Ellen‘ show (airs Tuesday) — when Ellen asked Ronda if she’ll ever go back to the UFC.
“I don’t know,” Ronda said … “I think it’s just as likely as me going back to another Olympics for judo.”
FYI, Rousey won a bronze medal in judo in the 2008 Summer Olympics. She began her MMA fighting career in 2010. And let’s face it, she ain’t going back to judo.
“No one demanded a written resignation from me for judo and I don’t really think the same thing is necessary for fighting.”
“I’m just doing what I enjoy and WWE is what I enjoy right now.”
Ronda hasn’t fought in the UFC since December 2016, when she lost to Amanda Nunes. Before that fight, and a loss to Holly Holm in 2015, Rousey went on a 12-fight undefeated streak and locked up a future spot in the UFC Hall of Fame.
