Is Ronda Rousey ready to hang up her gloves for good?! The MMA fighter lost her first fight on Nov. 14, and it’s really messing with her head. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on whether or not Ronda will retire now that she’s been defeated.
Ronda Rousey’s career has blown up and she’s become known for so much more than just her skills in the ring — but could she be retiring after her brutal loss to Holly Holm?! HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned what the 28-year-old is planning next in her career.
“As much as she wants a rematch, she also has told people that she might retire because the scenario of losing was never thought of at anytime and she has a lot of other things on her plate to achieve,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCUSIVELY. Wow, that would be pretty crazy — it was just one loss, and she can totally come back from it!
Ronda’s loss to Holly on Nov. 14 at UFC 193 was beyond shocking because it broke her undefeated, 12-0 record. While attempting to defend her Women’s Bantamweight Championship, Ronda was taken down by her opponent in just two rounds, and it was pretty brutal — she was even hospitalized after!
The MMA fighter spent the night in an Australian hospital for observation. Besides precautionary reasons, doctors also had to sew up Ronda’s lip, which was split open during the fight. “Physically, she was feeling pretty rough, but she will be fine,” our source explained. “The current situation that she has been dealing with most is that her pride has been shattered.”
Before the match, Ronda admitted that Holly would be her toughest opponent to date, but she likely didn’t realize how right she was! Hopefully she’s able to get past this hard loss, though, because a rematch between these two would be TOTALLY epic.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Ronda would retire?
