Ronda Rousey Finishing Deal To Join WWE

Ronda Rousey's UFC career might, for all intents and purposes, by effectively over thanks to a 48-second rinsing from Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 back in December of 2016, but her career inside a ring is apparently far from over.

At that time, Rousey staged an "altercation" with WWE superstars Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Bayley while standing alongside her real life friends Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir.

Two people close to Rousey told USA TODAY Sports that she is finalizing details of her move to WWE. She brought crashing down an image of invincibility Rousey had crafted en route to a dominant 6-0 start on the UFC circuit that made her one of the biggest stars in sports.


IF Rousey signs with WWE prior to WrestleMania 34, a more likely match would involve her and the Four Horsewomen.

Speculation has been running wild over a possible Wrestlemania appearance next year at New Orleans for a long time now and the 30-year-old fuelled the rumours last September.

Either way, wrestling - which is already the greatest thing in the world - just got a hell of a lot more intriguing.


Triple H said the ex-UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion wants the opportunity to work with WWE again two months ago.

Baszler began her MMA career in 2003 and has competed in a total of 26 fights with a record of 15-11. But it sounds like we haven't seen the last of her in combat.

"You name the time, you name the place", Rousey said to Flair in the clip.


Ronda Rousey first came into the spotlight when she won the Bronze Medal in Judo at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Rousey has been in a number of TV and movie projects, including The Expendables 3 and Fast 7, plus ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, Maxim, and Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, and she has regularly appeared on shows like Ellen and even hosted Saturday Night Live. In a video posted to her Twitter account on December 1st previewing Rousey's new website, footage was shown of Rousey training at the WWE Performance Center. Even after her loss to Nunes, she's still one of the most widely-known talents from the UFC world.
