Ronda Rousey could call time on her UFC career after a second consecutive defeat
Ronda Rousey lost for only the second time in her career when she was knocked out in 48 seconds by Amanda Nunes last month.
She told fans afterwards that she needed time to consider her future and has yet to announce a decision.
However, UFC supremo White claims he knows what’s coming – even if he doesn’t know when.

“In the conversation I had with her, if I had to say right here right now – again I don’t like saying right here right now because it’s up to her – but I would’t say she fights again,” White said.
“I think she’s probably done.
“She’s going to ride off into the sunset and start living her life outside of fighting.”
Rousey, an Olympic bronze medallist in judo, has previously appeared in a number of feature films and been linked with a switch to professional wrestling with WWE.
And White believes that the decision could have come even after her first defeat, when she lost her unbeaten record to Holly Holm in November 2015.
“She’s so competitive that, her career and record meant everything to her,” White added.
“And then once she lost, she started to say to herself, ‘What the f*** am I doing?
“This is my whole life. This is it? I want to experience and start doing other things.’
“And I think that’s what she started to do, and she’s got a lot of money.
“She’s never going to need money again.”
