For those that haven’t been following the coverage over on MMANews.co, Ronda Rousey suffered the second loss of her professional fighting career Friday night at UFC 207 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Rousey (12-2) was TKO’d 48-seconds into her fight for the UFC women’s bantamweight championship against Amanda Nunes. The fight was not a competitive encounter and Rousey appeared lost with her head being the only thing stopping Nunes and her vicious strikes.
Many of our readers have already contacted us regarding WWE’s interest in Rousey.
While Ronda is obviously not in as good of a negotiating position as she would have been had she won the fight, there is an opportunity for her in WWE. Company officials were not put off by her loss to Holly Holm last November and Stephanie McMahon has loosely talked to Rousey about following up on her surprise appearance at Wrestlemania 31 a couple years ago.
Triple H has also commented publicly about Rousey’s great relationship with WWE and the opportunity of them worthing together again.
At this point the ball will be in Rousey’s court as she will have the opportunity to crossover to WWE in the event she decides to quit the UFC. Many are already speculating that it’s a given Rousey will be involved with Wrestlemania 33 but it’s way too soon to begin drawing such conclusions.
Rousey remains on WWE's radar as a star they believe could have success similar to that of Brock Lesnar and could be a major draw for them, even in the face of a couple of losses.
