The world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and professional wrestling often intertwine, with athletes transitioning between the two. Recently, the rumour mill has been buzzing with whispers of WWE superstar Ronda Rousey making a sensational return to the UFC. However, UFC President Dana White has firmly dismissed these speculations.

Following Ronda Rousey’s latest WWE match against Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam, the MMA community and fans began to speculate about her potential return to the UFC.

Dana White, however, was quick to quash these rumours. In a conversation with Sports Illustrated, he stated unequivocally that there’s “no shot” of Rousey making a comeback to the UFC.

White’s Response to the Daily Mail’s Claims

Addressing the media after Dana White’s Contender Series, White didn’t mince his words. He labelled the Daily Mail’s report as a “crock of s**t” (via a tweet from Aaron Bronsteter of TSN Sports).

Reiterating his earlier stance, he denied for the second time that Rousey is eyeing a UFC return.

White emphasised Rousey’s current life choices, stating, “Ronda’s having kids! Ronda built this whole thing that’s going on with the women here, then her dream was to go to the WWE. She achieved everything she aimed for in the WWE, made a significant amount of money, and has since moved on with her life.”

It was a challenging fight for Rousey, where she faced a first-round defeat against Amanda Nunes. Since then, she has not expressed any interest in returning to the MMA world, focusing instead on her professional wrestling career and personal life.
