UFC legend Ronda Rousey got into a tense and awkward exchange with ESPN host Mike Golic Tuesday.
Rousey is currently out of fighting and in the WWE world. Apparently, shes not overly eager to discuss her plans of fighting in the future because Golics question about it got super weird.
Here is a transcript of the entire exchange, via MMA Junkie:
Golic: Lets go back and start when you knew from the MMA when you were done there. When you knew in your mind, “Im not going to fight anymore?”
Rousey: I never said that.
Golic: Ah, so there is a possibility that you could go back in time?
Rousey: Theres a possibility that I could go back in time? Thats your question to me?
Golic: Go back in time, and fight. Go back in the octagon.
Rousey: I do not have the ability to go back in time, no.
Golic: Would you fight again?
Rousey: I dont know.

What is Rouseys problem here? I think its a very fair question from Golic. Does anybody actually think Rousey will ever fight again in the UFC? The answer is an overwhelming no. She got obliterated the last two times she stepped into the octagon. Absolutely destroyed.
Its also raising the point that theres no real purpose for her to ever get in the octagon again. Shes already made her money and left a great legacy. There is no reason to get punched in the face if youre already rich and working in the WWE, which Im sure pays her a very reasonable salary.
Rousey is one of the greatest female fighters ever, and I hope we never see her fight again. Its time for her to move on.
