Ronda Rousey Finishing Deal To Join WWE

Ronda Rousey Finishing Deal To Join WWE

However, a stunning loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015 punctured her aura of invincibility, and after taking more than a year to recover and attend to a burgeoning acting career, Rousey was knocked out in just 48 seconds by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.

After Bazsler's win, Rousey was confronted by Charlotte Flair, clearly teasing a potential battle.

Ronda Rousey to WWE?

According to USA Today, Ronda Rousey is finalizing details that will bring the former UFC Champion into the world of WWE.

That will nearly certainly stand as Rousey's final MMA fight, as even UFC President Dana White has said he doesn't expect her back in the octagon.

Christine Keeler, model at centre of Profumo Affair, dies aged 75
Stephen Ward, an osteopath, introduced society girl Keeler to Profumo in 1961, sparking an affair between the pair. She had two sons, James from her first marriage, and Seymour from her second, and a granddaughter.

WWE seemed to all but confirm Rousey's imminent arrival when it shared a clip on Twitter of Rousey, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke at the Mae Young Classic.

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.

Triple H said the ex-UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion wants the opportunity to work with WWE again two months ago. The UFC's first female fighter, Rousey began her MMA career 12-0, usually dispatching her foes shortly into the first round, and won acclaim for her skills, looks and charisma. "She will get a lot of money and that's great".

"I wouldn't want to see it", White said last week.

Whether that actually happens remains to be seen, but Rousey is legitimately a huge name who can attract a wide audience in WWE regardless of what she does. 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. Along with the other Four Horsewomen members, Rousey has been training in the ring (at times at the WWE Performance Center), which was shown in a December 1 video that was previewing her personal website. She was subdued and mostly absent from promotion leading up to the Nunes fight and has largely shunned the spotlight since.
