Ronda Rousey: UFC 207 is definitely one of my last fights

Ronda Rousey: UFC 207 is definitely one of my last fights

Cyborg has called for a super fight between her and Rousey many times and has been continually frustrated by the fact the UFC do not now accommodate her weight class.

This isn't the first time the UFC's golden girl has discussed bouncing early from MMA.

"I'm not going to be doing this in my 30s". If you weren't going to tune into her next fight in December, you may want to. By 30s, I mean like 31, 32.

The 29-year-old has proven she's a multi-platform star. DeGeneres is already assuming that Rousey will win her next fight but the big surprise came once Rousey admitted that she is wrapping up her career soon.

Ronda Rousey: UFC 207 is definitely one of my last fights

Rousey is now ready to return to the sport, but from the sound of things she won't be around much longer with retirement looming in the near future. While there is a concern about potential cannibalization of viewers, HBO vice president of programming Tony Walker said the network is confident its event would appeal to boxing fans looking for a competitive matchup between undefeated fighters. That's all I said. "But she is, so good for her".

While Rousey's critics are likely to jump on her for admitting that the pressure gets to her, the former champion seemed comfortable talking to Degeneres about her mental health.

As host Ellen DeGeneres held up the two-page spread, which came out October 24, Rousey cracked: "I heard I made a very prestigious list".

"I think it's definitely the buildup that's more tiring than anything else", said Rousey. White previously predicted the bout would set a UFC pay-per-view record with two million buys. The shocking loss coupled with a busy Hollywood schedule put a delay in Rousey's return to the UFC. She will face Nunes (13-4) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on December 30.
