Ronda Rousey Ending Fighting Career Soon

"Everyone better watch because the show isn't going to be around forever."


UFC star Ronda Rousey has confirmed that her fighting days are coming to an end. Appearing on Ellen this week, the 29-year-old was asked how much longer she plans to fight.

"Not that long," she responded. More specifically, she confirmed that her UFC 207 matchup on December 30 against Amanda Nunes is "definitely" one of her last bouts.

"I'm wrapping it up. [UFC 2017 is] definitely one of my last fights," she said. "Everyone better watch because the show isn't going to be around forever."

Rousey didn't offer any specifics on what she'll do after retiring from fighting, but said she's doing a lot of knitting right now to prepare for the end of the world. When the world ends, the only clothes you'll have are the ones you make, she says. She's in a knitting club called "the yarn and the restless" with actress Kat Dennings.

Rousey was a perfect 12-0 before being defeated by Holly Holm in November 2015. She and Conor McGregor are on the cover of EA Sports UFC 2, both having lost their latest fights after being named the cover stars.

A big-time gaming fan, Rousey said earlier this year that she wants to play Samus Aran in a movie about the character.

In addition to fighting, Rousey has acted in movies like Entourage, Furious 7, and The Expendables 3.
