Ronda Rousey 'Finalizing' A Signing With WWE

Share

And it seems like the first ever female UFC Champion will embark on a different adventure as two people close to her told USA TODAY that she's finalising a switch to WWE.

If Rousey is finished with Mixed Martial Arts, her record will stand at 12-2, losing the final two fights to Holly Holm and current UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, Amanda Nunes.

Ronda Rousey's Ultimate Fighting Championship career effectively ended a year ago, when she was beaten by Amanda Nunes inside 48 seconds.

Since then, Rousey and WWE have been somewhat inseparable even as she continued working in MMA.

Ronda Rousey's career in the UFC might over but it looks like she will be making her next move very soon. If she takes to the training quickly, she may get fast tracked to the main roster on name power alone. Rousey's next and final fight in the UFC came on December 30, 2016, when Amanda Nunes defeated her in the first round.

"I wouldn't want to see it", White said last week. "I wouldn't want it to happen", White said. She's got enough money and all of that stuff.

Sources close to the situation confirmed on Wednesday that Rousey has engaged in numerous conversations with WWE about joining the promotion but no contracts have been signed at this time. It's been a stark contrast from the fighter who lived in the public eye during her run of dominance with star turns like her appearance in the "Entourage" movie.

Ronda Rousey may finally be ready to test out a new career in professional wrestling. Regardless, any potential deal with Rousey is likely to be more along the lines of the one afforded to Brock Lesnar; one in which she is used sparingly as an attraction performer, rather than a full-time in-ring competitor.

Maybe that time and place is this March at Wrestlemania in New Orleans?

That would be huge for wrestling fans as Rousey would lock horns with the likes of Paige, Asuka, Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and many more.

Overall, if this move comes to fruition, it's not so much a direct loss for the UFC given the likelihood Rousey wasn't returning to the cage for them. And with their broadcast rights coming up soon, it's hard to think of a better time to do that.
