Dana White not interested in Ronda Rousey’s UFC return
UFC President Dana White doesn’t want former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to return to the octagon.
“She has not retired,” White said on Tuesday. “USADA is still popping up at her house testing her, but she refuses to retire.”
“I don’t know. I honestly don’t know,” White said. ” … She’s not ready to say, ‘I quit.’ She’s not ready to say, ‘I’m done,’ for whatever reason. She doesn’t tick like everyone else ticks.”
“I wouldn’t want to see it,” White told MMAjunkie. “I don’t want it to have to happen. I care about her, and she’s got enough money. She’s got enough money and all of that stuff. I don’t want to see it happen.”
“She’s good. She’s happy, man. She’s happy doing her thing,” White said. “If you look at Ronda Rousey, where she is now in her life, she accomplished everything she wanted to accomplish. And now she wants to have a life – like a personal life – and enjoy all the hard work she put in.
“She’s been working since she was a kid at becoming an Olympic medalist and then becoming a world champion. She’s achieved everything she’s wanted to do, she’s made a sh*tload of money, and now she actually wants to have a life.”
But does Rousey realize it?
“I think at one point she did, but I think because of how it ended, she might not,” he said.
