Sources claim Ronda Rousey ready to take one final shot at MMA prior to expanding family

Ronda Rousey is gearing up for a final shot at the UFC title, aiming to retire on a high note. A trusted insider close to the 36-year-old sensation has exclusively disclosed that Rousey is gradually transitioning away from her WWE commitments.

The source said that her focus has now shifted to a potential comeback in the UFC, with her sights set on UFC 300 in the upcoming year.

“She just had a match at Summer Slam and is looking to wind down her time and commitments with the WWE and she is now focusing on potentially making a run to have one last fight in the UFC and compete at UFC 300 when that presents itself sometime next year.”

According to the source, Rousey finds herself at a pivotal crossroads in both her personal life and career. She’s actively exploring new horizons, especially in the realm of television and film.

Rousey has graced the silver screen in several prominent movies, including ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and ‘Furious 7.’ Additionally, her latest venture was a reality TV show called ‘Stars on Mars.’

However, her ambitions may temporarily take a back seat due to the possibility of expanding her family. Currently a mother to one-year-old La’akea Makalapuaokalanip┼Ź Browne, Rousey is contemplating the idea of adding another child to her family.

The sourced told dailymail: “She really wants to do it all [career-wise], but in the next few months don’t be caught off guard that she is having another kid because that is something she feels is one of the most important things to happen for her again.”

Rousey recently suffered a defeat at the hands of former tag team partner and fellow MMA star Shayna Baszler during the Premium Live Event SummerSlam held on August 5.

Recent reports from GiveMeSport indicate that Rousey’s WWE contract featured a ‘hard out’ clause allowing her to depart at any point. She has since parted ways with the company.

Rousey’s journey to fame commenced with her historic entry into the UFC in 2012 as the first female competitor to be signed by the organization. She went on to participate in the UFC’s first female match. She also claimed the title of the UFC’s first-ever women’s champion.

However, her MMA journey met a poignant conclusion in 2016. A string of defeats, including a brutal knockout by Holly Holm and a swift stoppage by Amanda Nunes, signaled the end of her dominant run.

Following her departure from MMA, Rousey explored various opportunities outside the realm of combat sports. In 2016, she graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, making a significant splash beyond the octagon.

Her allure and fame caught the attention of WWE, leading to guest appearances before she formally joined the organization in 2017.

Today, Rousey’s legacy continues to shine brightly. Her enduring impact both within the octagon and beyond, serves as an inspiration to aspiring combatants.
