Dana White: "There's no shot" of Ronda Rousey fighting again

Dana White is shutting down any potential of Ronda Rousey returning to the UFC.

While speaking with Justin Barrasso of SI.com, the UFC president dismissed the idea of Rousey coming back to fight next year:

There’s no shot. She’s accomplished everything she set out to do.

White added that she’s won titles in the UFC and WWE and is starting a family and has made “so much money” and continues to with sponsorships.

Rousey recently completed her latest stint in WWE with a loss to Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam earlier this month in an ‘MMA Rules’ match.

The influential figure is a former Strikeforce & UFC Bantamweight Champion and was part of the first female fight in the UFC in February 2013 when she defeated Liz Carmouche at UFC 157 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Rousey was on a dominant run until she was knocked out by Holly Holm in November 2015 at UFC 193 and took more than a year off. She returned at UFC 216 in December 2016 and was stopped by then-champion Amanda Nunes and was Rousey’s final fight. She was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2018.

Rousey kept a low profile over the next year before debuting for WWE with an appearance at the Royal Rumble in January 2018 and signed a multi-year contract with the company.
