Is Ronda Rousey considering a comeback to UFC? The DAZN MMA Show discusses the possibility, but doubts remain. Get the latest insights on Rousey’s potential return.
Is Ronda Rousey Considering a Comeback to UFC?
Ronda Rousey, the first women’s Hall of Famer in UFC, has been the subject of comeback rumors. The DAZN MMA Show recently discussed the possibility of Rousey returning to the Octagon, but there are doubts about whether she should or even wants to make a comeback.
After her retirement in 2016, Rousey was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2018. Since then, she has enjoyed a successful career in the entertainment industry, both on screen and as part of WWE. However, speculation has been circulating that the 36-year-old might be tempted to return to her roots.
During the DAZN MMA Show, Sean O’Connell raised the question of Rousey’s potential return, acknowledging her significant impact on women’s mixed martial arts. O’Connell stated, "She’s this incredible pioneer in women’s MMA. Without Ronda Rousey, the UFC may not have introduced women’s weight classes when they did. Her legacy as one of the great fighters in the sport is secure because of what she represents."
However, when asked if they would like to see Ronda Rousey compete again and if they believed it would happen, Dan Hardy expressed skepticism. Hardy believes that Rousey is content with her current career in WWE and has found her true calling in professional wrestling. He said, "I think she was really amazing in combat sports, but I always felt that wrestling was her thing. I think she’s in the right place for herself now. And you know MMA has moved on. If she came back, it would have to be against a Holly Holm or Miesha Tate, just to have an even and fair match-up that would be of interest to the fans. The bantamweight and featherweight divisions have evolved, and it wouldn’t be a wise decision for her to return at this point."
While Rousey’s potential return to UFC may generate excitement among fans, it seems unlikely at this stage. She has established herself as a prominent figure in WWE and has seemingly found fulfillment in her current role.
