  • Ronda Rousey Should Go WWE if Finished in UFC

    After last night's loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, many are wondering what the future holds for UFC star Ronda Rousey. Some believe her mixed martial arts career is over. It is too early to predict whether or not she is finished with fighting. But if she is, one of her potential options might be to sing a contract with the WWE. It is not so far-fetched to believe that Rousey could join the world of professional wrestling. Here are some reasons why: 1. Other UFC stars including Dan "The Beast" Severn [see his CYInterview segment here,] Ken Shamrock and Tank Abbott had runs in professional wrestling. Severn wrestled The Rock in the WWE and was an NWA World Champion; Shamrock was a WWE Intercontinental Champion and King of the Ring tournament winner and Tank Abbott was in the WCW. No doubt, UFC fighters have found success in pro wrestling. Why not Ronda Rousey?
