It has been known for quite some time that Ronda Rousey has competed in her final MMA bout with the UFC. Now, Rousey, who dabbled in wrestling, will go full force into it as her new career path.

Rousey previously appeared at WrestleMania in a skit with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Stephanie McMahon before. This will be one of the top female signings for the company.

According to The Big Lead, “it has long been expected that the former UFC bantamweight champion would make the move to professional wrestling after her career in the Octagon was over.”

While she has made appearances with the company, as we mentioned above, she has never officially competed for the World Wrestling Entertainment. She was recently spotted at the WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

With no official deal yet in place, it’s only speculation on what her role may be. The 30-year-old may serve as a full-time superstar; however, the more likely option would be for her to have a similar role as Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar only makes spot appearances on WWE’s Monday Night Raw. And typically only competes on their big pay-per-views. Rousey could have a similar role as his.

She has not competed in the Octagon since UFC 207 on December 30th, 2016 when she was knocked out by Amanda Nunes. It was her second straight loss – and she did not put up much of a fight in this loss to Nunes – as her first loss came in November 2015 when she lost for the first-time to Holly Holm in Australia.

Rousey admitted that after the loss to Holm that she was put in a dark place in her life. She even admitted that she attempted to commit suicide.

She ends her mixed martial arts career with a 12-2 record.
