UFC President Dana White doesn’t expect Ronda Rousey to return

Ronda Rousey isn’t yet thinking about a comeback, according to UFC President Dana White.

While speaking at a press conference after UFC 210 in Buffalo, White said that he has stayed in contact with Rousey, and it doesn’t look promising that she will ever compete again.

“Ronda and I talk maybe once a week, once every two weeks. She has not said anything to me about a comeback,” White told reporters after UFC 210 in Buffalo.

After winning the first 12 fights of her career, including six title defenses as the first ever UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Rousey has dropped her last two. After getting knocked out by Holly Holm in 2015, she sat out a year before returning to the cage to fight Amanda Nunes last December. But in that fight, she lasted only 48 seconds.

Rousey has not yet said anything about the future of her career, and White admitted that he was merely speculating.

“If I had to guess, I would guess that she would not come back,” White said.
