“That’s what everybody else seems to say. I never retired from judo. If that’s what you guys want to think. All I know is that I really want to devote 100 percent of my time to wrestling right now, and whatever people want to call that, they can call it.”
However, the former UFC bantamweight champion wouldn’t have much to say on her two defeats in the octagon.
“I think I’d rather just not talk about that right now.”
Rousey did have one of the most dominant and successful runs in UFC history. And what she would do for the women’s division of the sport i nothing short of legendary. But it would end on two very sour notes, so it makes sense if she wants to put that all behind her. Because as Rousey has already said, she’s all-in on WWE.
“This is my life now. They have first priority on my time for the next several years. This is not a smash-and-grab. This is not a publicity stunt. When I first met with Triple H, I told him: ‘There are other things that I can do with my time that’ll make way more money, but I won’t enjoy nearly as much.’”
