Ronda Rousey wants one last shot at a UFC title; more kids also in the pipeline: A close source

Mere talks of Ronda Rousey’s potential return to the UFC ignite excitement within the MMA community. Despite her absence from competition since her defeat to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, the discussions surrounding Rousey’s prospective comeback continue to command notable attention and speculation.

In an exclusive revelation, an unnamed source told DailyMail about Ronda Rousey’s potential future plans. According to the source, Rousey’s future plans encompass bidding farewell to her wrestling career to embark on a final quest for her UFC title.

The source, who apparently is Rousey’s confidant, put forward that after her recent appearance at WWE Summer Slam, she’s eyeing a possible return to the UFC for a defining bout at UFC 300 next year [via Daily Mail]:

“She just had a match at Summer Slam and is looking to wind down her time and commitments with the WWE and she is now focusing on potentially making a run to have one last fight in the UFC and compete at UFC 300 when that presents itself sometime next year.”

Beyond competing, Rousey’s ambitions extend to the world of television and cinema. With a string of movie credits and a recent stint on the reality show Stars on Mars, Rousey aims to build a thriving career in the entertainment business.

However, these career pursuits might take a backseat to the prospect of expanding her family. The source unveiled that Rousey is contemplating having a second child. The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion has a one-year-old daughter, La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne, with retired UFC fighter and husband Travis Browne.
