Ronda Rousey is yet to step back into the Octagon again after her UFC 193 loss to Holly Holm. But if renowned MMA nutritionist Mike Dolce is to be believed, Ronda Rousey is plotting her comeback and “world domination”.
Speaking to MMA Junkie, the famous nutritionist said that no timetable has been set yet for Rousey’s return. He also added that she is going to return to the Octagon with a bang and training hard for it.
“We’re planning Ronda’s comeback and her world domination,” Dolce said. “That’s really what it’s about. The last loss Ronda suffered was in the 2008 Olympics, where she battled back and won a bronze medal. She has been undefeated since, all the way to November 2015.”
It was widely speculated that Rousey’s comeback fight would be a rematch with Holly Holm. But the dynamics changed after Holm failed to defend her bantamweight title against Miesha Tate. Tate defeated Holm at UFC 196 on March 5 via a fifth round rear-naked choke. She is now going to have her first title defence against Amanda Nunes at UFC 200.
According to Dolce, Rousey is now more focused than ever and waiting for the right time to return.
“She’s extremely refocused, and the team is definitely moving forward,” Dolce said. “We’re all rowing in the right direction, and now it’s just a matter of sitting back and waiting for the right time for her to step back in again.”
According to UFC president Dana White, Rousey is likely to return either in November or December.
“She’s in a great place mentally, physically and emotionally; every way you can be good, she’s good. She’s talking about coming back at the end of this year. She’s either talking about coming back in November or December,” he said.
He also informed that Rousey is ready to fight again.
“She’s ready again. She’s ready to fight,” he said confidently.
