Ronda Rousey recently appeared on The Ellen Show because that’s pretty much all she does nowadays: give interviews. Rousey, who became famous for being one of the most badass fighters in the sport, has gone COMPLETELY soft, and it’s a damn shame.
Ronda Rousey on her fighting future, via The Ellen Degeneres Show:
“I’ve been training twice a day since the beginning of August,” Rousey said of her preparations for Nunes, whom she fights December 30 at UFC 207 in Las Vegas. “I finally feel like I’m in super-ninja good mode.”
“I’m wrapping it up. This is definitely one of my last fights,” Rousey said during the interview.
She added: “Everyone better watch, because the show isn’t going to be around forever.”
Rousey, 29, was one of the UFC’s most dominant fighters, defending her title belt an astounding six times in a three year period. In her last three wins, she ended the fights in a combined total of one minute and four seconds, as well as ending her first 12 professional wins via knockout or submission.
However, her dominance ended at UFC 193 last November, when Holly Holm DROPPED her out in the second round in one of the biggest upsets in UFC history. The loss hit her so hard that Rousey admitted on Ellen in February that she had contemplated suicide in the wake of the loss, questioning what worth she had if she wasn’t the champion. Soft as baby shit.
No wonder the UFC is being so careful with Conor McGregor‘s image: Ronda Rousey. I mean, shit, have you ever seen someone’s star fade so quickly? Just a short year ago Rousey was on top of the planet, then after one Holly Holm hook later, she’s barely even relevant.
