UFC president Dana White said he recently talked to Ronda Rousey, and based on that talk, believes she will never fight again.
“I think she’s probably done,” White said on a UFC Unfiltered podcast published Tuesday. “In the conversation that I had with her, if I had to say right here, right now — and, again, I don’t like saying right here, right now because, you know, it’s up to her and her thing — but I wouldn’t say she fights again.” Rousey (12-2) lost her second straight fight Dec.
“She’s so competitive that her career record meant everything to her, and then once she lost, she started to say to herself, ‘What the f— am I doing? “I need to take some time to reflect and think about the future.
UFC president Dana White said he thinks Ronda Rousey has fought her last fight.
It happened to Ronda." White says, even though he thinks Ronda is turning the page on her fighting career, she'll always be connected with the UFC.

Dana White tells TMZ Sports it's pretty obvious what happened to Ronda Rousey -- "One day you show up and you don't have it anymore." The UFC honcho appeared on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs Tuesday night on FS1) and said Ronda's career has gone the way of MOST great professional athletes. When you're a professional athlete and you're competing at a certain level, the day comes when you don't anymore.
Rousey imposed a media blackout ahead of the fight to keep herself out of the spotlight as much as possible. Nunes needed just 48 seconds to dismantle Rousey with punches and pick up the first-round TKO to defend her title.
It was a crushing result for Rousey, and one that all signs point to being the end of her combat sports career.
She has not said anything to me about a comeback.” Rousey was responsible for bringing women’s MMA to the UFC stage in 2013 when she was crowned the inaugural 135-pound champion after dominating the competition in the now-defunct Strikeforce organization.
“Rowdy” continued to handle all foes placed before her in the UFC, going 6-0 with six title defenses to start her tenure with the promotion. Rousey lost the title in shocking fashion when she was knocked out cold by a Holly Holm head kick at UFC 193 in November 2015.
