Ronda Rousey’s future is up for debate these days, and no one except her knows what her next move will be. Whether she decides ‘Enough Is Enough’ and calls it a career, or will she decide to come back and leave on a high.
After her dreadful under a minute loss to Amanda Nunez, the former women’s champion has fallen to the 4th spot in women’s ranking and it seems she is not in no position to challenge anyone in the top 5 list. Maybe if Meisha Tate comes out of retirement, Rowdy could fight her for the third time, as she has already defeated Tate in previous two meetings, how hard it could be!
However, before she decides on her next move, what she need to do is to ditch her trainer Edmond Tarverdyan, who has been criticized from all quarters for ruining Rowdy’s UFC career. Ronda’s Nutrition coach Mike Dolce is still hopeful that she will stay and dominate the UFC once again.
Dolce said: “I wouldn’t be surprised either way, I want to make sure that’s contextual. If she says, ‘I want to be back for Super Bowl weekend or the July 4 card,’ I would not be surprised in the slightest. If she says, ‘I’ve done my thing in MMA, I’m gonna retire as a legend in the sport, specifically for women’s MMA,’ I wouldn’t be surprised, either. I truly think it’s 50-50 right now. I think it’s gonna take some time, I don’t think she truly knows right now. As with any good athlete, she should take her time to really think about it.”
Rousey has not spoken to media since her loss, except for her one short statement in which she said that she needs time to think about her next move.
