Former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has put on a storied career in mixed martial arts. That being said, it would appear that the UFC megastar is zeroing in on a deal for a career in professional wrestling under the WWE banner.
Back in September, Rousey was present for a WWE event and was seen in a staredown with WWE star Charlotte Flair. Rousey then challenged the pro-wrestler, “You name the time. You name the place.” Now it has been reported that Rousey may finally be coming closer to achieving WWE superstar status.
Two sources have come forward to USA Today to report that Ronda Rousey is finalizing the details on her move to the pro-wrestling promotion. The sources requested anonymity, as Rousey’s move to the WWE has not yet been officially announced.
Rousey has yet to officially retire from the sport of mixed martial arts. That being said, the former UFC bantamweight champion has not competed inside the octagon since going on a two fight losing streak.
Back in 2015, Holly Holm dealt Rousey her first ever loss as a professional mixed martial artist with a brutal knockout finish in the second round. After the tough defeat, the former champion would go on to face Amanda Nunes in 2016. This time around, Rousey suffered a brutal first round TKO stoppage loss.
Rousey is now 12-2 as a mixed martial artist, having gain a reputation as one of the most dominant fighters to ever step inside the octagon. Win or lose, Rousey has never gone the distance in her MMA career. On only one occasion has the fighter ever seen a third round, which was a submission victory over Miesha Tate.
