After losing to Holly Holm at UFC 193, Ronda Rousey fell from the ranks of undefeated. And in a new commercial promoting her partnership with Reebok, the 29-year-old fighter said she’s fine not being perfect.
Prior to her knockout loss to Holm, Rousey was 12-0 in her UFC career. Some considered her to be the most dominant athlete in sports. But Holm brought Rousey back down to earth, proving she was human in the process.
Rousey hasn’t fought since, nor has she revealed any plans as to when she’ll fight again. But according to UFC president Dana White, Rousey will get a shot at reclaiming her bantamweight title as soon as she is ready to return to the Octagon.
“I would like to see her fight this year, but it could be early next year, too. Whoever the champion is at the time is who Ronda will fight,” White said after Saturday’s UFC 200.
No fighter has defended the bantamweight title since Rousey surrendered it to Holm last November. If her recent commercial is any indication, Rousey is gearing up to reclaim it.
