With Ronda Rousey expected to be facing Shayna Baszler at the 2023 WWE Summerslam PLE, there has been internet speculation regarding Rousey possibly leaving WWE after the event.
UFC fighter Chelsea Chandler told MMAJunkie.com that she heard Rousey was returning to the brand as a featherweight…
“I’ve heard she’s coming back at 145. You never know. … If I got out there and put on the performance I plan on putting (on), I’ll welcome her to 145. I think it would be a great fight. It has been a long time for her, and things change, people get better, and I think people are on to her one-trick-pony armbar. Money talks, and she would bring eyes to the sport again. I feel like her time in WWE is starting to go down, so I’d like to see it.”
However, reporter Ariel Helwani shot down this claim…
“Ronda Rousey is not considering a UFC comeback, I’m told. No truth to the rumors started yesterday.”
Ronda Rousey is not considering a UFC comeback, I’m told.
No truth to the rumors started yesterday.
