Ronda Rousey, once the shining star of WWE, has been making headlines again. After her last match in WWE at SummerSlam, the rumour mill has been buzzing with speculations about her next move.

Rousey’s departure from WWE was not without its share of drama. The WWE creative team was reportedly instructed to abandon all plans involving her.

This move left many fans puzzled and curious about the future of the “Baddest Woman on the Planet”.

The intrigue deepened when a UK publication, The Daily Mail, hinted at Rousey’s potential return to the UFC. This speculation gained traction after her WWE contract ended post-SummerSlam, following a defeat to Shayna Baszler.

Ronda Rousey: Aiming for UFC 300?

The same report suggests that Rousey’s primary ambition now is to possibly engage in one last fight in the UFC. The target? UFC 300, slated for next year.

This would be a significant milestone, not just for the UFC, but for Rousey herself, marking a full circle in her combat sports journey.

Rousey at a Career Crossroads

Ronda Rousey is undoubtedly at a pivotal juncture in both her personal and professional life. While she’s mulling over her next steps, there’s a strong emphasis on exploring opportunities in television and film.

Over the years, Rousey has showcased her acting chops in films like “Charlie’s Angels” and “Furious 7”. Additionally, she’s been a part of the reality TV circuit, with her recent appearance on “Stars on Mars”.

Personal Life and Future Plans

While her career aspirations are evident, Rousey’s personal life also seems to be a significant consideration. She and her husband, retired fighter Travis Browne, welcomed their daughter, La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō, in October 2021.

Sources indicate that Rousey cherished her time on reality TV and, with a surge in reality programming on the horizon, she’s keen on exploring such opportunities.

However, there’s also chatter about Rousey’s desire to expand her family. The possibility of another child might put her UFC and screen aspirations on a temporary hold.

The WWE Chapter

Rousey’s WWE journey concluded on her terms. Her loss to Shayna Baszler, a close friend and a significant influence on Rousey’s pro-wrestling passion, was a fitting end to this chapter.

While the door to WWE might still be ajar for Rousey, transitioning back to UFC could be a more challenging endeavour. Dana White, the president of UFC, has previously expressed scepticism about Rousey’s return to the octagon.

Given that UFC is a genuine sporting competition, Rousey would face fierce competitors in their prime.
