Ronda Rousey: I’ll Retire When I Feel Like My Mark Has Been Made and I’m Ready to Make Babies

Ronda-Rousey-Video-460x270UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey sent shockwaves and perhaps panic through the mixed martial arts community with recent comments, saying she may only have two years left in fighting.

The 2008 Beijing Olympic Bronze Medalist in judo transitioned to mixed martial arts in August 2010 with her first amateur fight and made her professional debut in March 2011.  In her fifth pro fight, Rousey captured the Strikeforce women’s bantamweight title by defeating then-champion Miesha Tate.

“I do four-year cycles. I think I’ve got two years left in me, realistically, if I’m going to do this like an Olympic run,” Rousey recently told MMAJunkie.com.

Rousey (7-0) became the first female champion in UFC history and defended that title for the first time at UFC 157 with a submission win over Liz Carmouche in the first female fight in the organization’s history.  She has won all of her fights by arm bar.

Fans took to Twitter in reaction to her comments, urging Rousey to extend her mixed martial arts expiration date.

Rousey responded and didn’t back off her original comments.

“I’ll retire when I feel like my mark has been made and I’m ready to make babies,” Rousey tweeted on Saturday.

Rousey recently finished filming the The Ultimate Fighter 18 opposite rival Miesha Tate.  The two are expected to rematch later this year.  She’ll begin filming her scenes for the motion picture The Expendables 3 soon and then her scenes in The Fast and the Furious 7, all before the fight with Tate.

She’s busy making her mark.

“I’d say two more years, so I’ve got two more years to get the ball rolling without me,” Rousey told MMAJunkie.  “‘TUF’ was the first step. It’s not the last one, but the work’s getting done.”

That’s not to say that two years is a deadline. Far from it. In Rousey’s mind, it was an estimate.

“My best guess was 2-3 years but thats a guess,who knows,the day Im not overjoyed2go2the gym is the day I quit,” she continued on Twitter. “Could be tomorrow or in 7years.”

    aka you’ll retire right before you have a matchup against Cyborg

    • #1mmafan.

      Rounder is a piece of crap and a future fatty. She’s not all that. Gina Carano probably would’ve beat the brakes off of her. And she’s definitely better looking than Rounder!!!

      • Supaman

        yes, Gina is better looking, but don’t know about better fighter…

        it’d be a classic striker vs grappler. I think Rousey would eventually get the takedown and Gina would be finished. Gina’s strength was striking and power. Basically, a Cyborg w/out roid rage.

      • al57

        Rhonda will be 200lbs in a few years same as Carano is around 180lbs now and looks huge on screen like a blimp.

      Are you being serious? How hard is it to understand that Cyborg is a PED user. And more importantly, what is it going to take to get people like you to understand the serious dangers of PED usage in combat sports? Remember, this isn’t baseball where you’re hitting a ball.

      • Mike mckinney

        You do realize that when they talk about roids and fighter Safty the generally are worried about the fighters taking the crap. It’s more harmful to the person taking it than anyone else.
        There’s not a superman pill. No one is afraid of a fighter getting “extra strong” and hurting another fighter because of PED’s. in fact the fighters girlfriends are probably at more risk.

        • Mr Pete

          Wtf? It IS a “superman” pill/injection. Today’s MMA judge emphasizes on takedowns, control and wresting. You don’t need skill if you can just Out Muscle your opponent and hold them. (“cough” Phil Davis, Jon Jones) Testosterone is natural, too much of anything is bad, It is the abuse that causes concern. Yes, people ARE afraid of size and muscle hence weight classes

      • al57

        Cyborg destroys Rhonda and ends this fake rouseys career witha devastating beat down.

      • BobGyro

        cyborg KO win within minute 1 of the first round PED or not

    • BobGyro

      Rousey is just trailer trash with money now.

    • Mr Pete

      Cyborg is a Man, the only fight he should be taking is in the men’s feather weight division or fight the tranny Fallon Fox. Zombie vs Cyborg! Now that’s a fight!

    She needs to stop speaking and being every “journalist’s” headline wet dream.

  • Schopenhauer

    Miesha Tate hatesquad out in full force. Keep talking boys, you’re just swelling Rouseys bank acc. in the end..

    • http://www.xnxx.com/ Fetus Sandwich

      If you don’t find her obnoxious, then you’re part of the boner-wielding virgin problem and have a moot opinion.

  • http://www.CombatScienceMMA.com/ CombatScienceMMA

    Until Ronda get’s wrecked in the cage or makes a horrible insult to somebody I don’t understand what some people’s issue is with her. She’s earned an Olympic medal and is an undefeated champion in the UFC. Forget the Cyborg fight. It just wasn’t happening and that’s on both parties. Honestly I feel like I can’t see one successful person anymore without people picking something; any little flaw at all to make them look like they are a complete scumbag.

    • Mike mckinney

      I don’t usually down fighters or anyone else. However the people who do are usually fans of someone else and feel downing other fighters is the same thing as cheering for their favorites. It’s silly, but its actually a good thing. It shows their invested in someone.
      I’m not so much a fan of any specific fighter. By that I mean I don’t really cheer for anyone. From all your post I’ve seen I gather you’re probably the same. At the same time some guys do come off as doushbags. Bisbing, jones, and oddly enough Rhonda. (Odd for a women)
      There not horriable people, but they can still come off a bit sleezey. Still don’t care whether they win or not though.

    • DamianCross

      Remember when you were a kid and you would play with all the other boys on the block, and then somebody’s mother would make their sister come and hang out with you and she’d come in and wreck everyone? That’s basically what Rhonda did to the UFC.

    • Maddawgmar

      I completely agree, they just find a reason to down someone who is doing well. And it seems that they would rather cheer for a cheater than a fighter that plays by the rules. The claims that Rousey hasn’t beat a single relevant fighter, or she has a big mouth or she has a mole under her eye or she is ugly. People throw rocks at those who shine. I for one believe Rousey is an awesome talent and will watch her as long as she decides to fight.

  • TheCerealKiller

    Isn’t she single? A woman planning to have babies that doesn’t have a boyfriend yet is a huge red flag of Psycho!
    Besides that, this is what will be a big killer in WMMA. A fighters prime is also baby making prime. How many times will people be OK with the best female fighters disappearing for a year to have kids?

    • Mike mckinney

      I don’t know. The article they had of her on the Rome show was discussing her liking to have sex with a “certain one person in her life.”
      I feel bad for kids these days if this is the only kind of material they have to jerk off too.

  • drkdisciple

    She is so full of it, the more I listen to her the more I hate her. A legend in her own mind, let us not forget that she only defended her title once and is running away from her toughest competition which is cyborg!!

  • al57

    Rousey is a fake. Face Cyborg or even McCann then talk. Way too much publicity and fake fandom for this ignorant hillbilly Rhonda.

  • al57

    Big Nose tate’s huge Nose or Rouseys big mouth. Both bad but Tate’s huge nose doesn’t talk.

  • nailed it

    I totally support her future career change, and will be much more likely to pay for videos of her “making babies”… if she makes up for her ugly looks with her ability to take hardcore punishment at least! lolol

    • silent_nick

      I’m surprised you have time to troll on MMA sites while managing your career as a supermodel.

  • uncle

    If she retires before fighting Cyborg her legacy will
    be tainted regardless

  • al57

    Rousey has beaten no one significant in MMA. Tate is a beaten down loser as is Kaufman and the gorilla. Cyborg and McMann would be tests for big mouth Rousey. Cyborg needs to KO Rhonda and end this charade and ego trip. Sickening.

  • al57

    Rousey is fast becoming the Al Sharpton version of the UFC. disgusting. please let Cyborg end this Rousey big mouth tirade of averageness.

  • al57

    Rousey with 4 or 5 little black babies in some inner city ghetto would be great.

  • al57

    Please Cyborg end this Rousey crap. McMann even you please shut this mole face up?

    • Maddawgmar

      Why do you think McMann would have any negetive rivalry with Rousey? I live two counties away from McMann and have met her a few times at the gym and she has nothing but positive remarks about Ronda. Said she is the true pound for pound queen. She dominates without cheating.

      • al57

        McMann seems like a nice quiet respectful lady who deserves a shot at Rousey. Hope it Happens and McMann becomes the champion.

        • Maddawgmar

          She is, and I believe she will be in a title fight really soon. As to whether she can stop the armbar will remain to he seen.

    • http://www.CombatScienceMMA.com/ CombatScienceMMA

      What’s your issue with Rousey? Doesn’t calling her a mole face put you in a negative position of giving a decent opinion on why you don’t like her?

      • al57

        Rousey is an ignorant foul mouthed uncouth tramp. Shooting Tate the finger on stage with kids watching is as low class as one can get. Hopefully Cyporg can knock Rouseys teeth out while breaking Rhonda’s jaw and putting Rousey to sleep via KO ending the career of trailer trash.

        • http://www.CombatScienceMMA.com/ CombatScienceMMA

          I understand.

  • al57

    Rhonda needs to settle down with a nice stable man like Nick Diaz. Picture those kids?

  • Guest

    I don’t care much for women’s MMA, but damn, what’s with all the Ronda hate? When will some of you understand that Rousy and Cyborg are not in the same weight class. Of course, Cyborg would destroy Ronda cause she actually has power but is also much bigger and in a HIGHER weight class! Yes, Ronda will disappear into the Hollywood world, but why wouldn’t she? More money, more fame, and no getting punched in the face…obvious choice for many.

    • uncle

      In my eyes Cyborg is the champion and Rousey
      is the challenger the thing is nobody would even
      be bringing it up if Ronda would of kept her mouth closed about Cyborg

  • al57

    Rhonda might want to wear a hoodie and buy some skittles and walk around south central La tonight. Too much mouth from Rousey. Woman should be seen not heard. FACT

  • al57

    Chris Cyborg will rip Rhonda’s uterus out so there won’t be any Rousey kids.

  • al57

    Nick Satan Diaz should breed with foul Rhonda and have a demon seed kid. Nice

  • Tony

    She’ll retire after Miesha Tate destroys her at the end of the year. She’ll be ready to settle down and make babies for sure. #WarCupcake #MieshaTateIsSexierThanRonda

  • al57

    So Rosey with a cheap Bronze medal in Judo at 154 lbs and starts her MMA career a 145 lbs then realizes that Cyborg is a beast so Rousey moves down to 135 and is staying there? What to be remembered Rhonda and not a fake then fight Cyborg at 140 or 145 lbs. Scared??? frightened?

  • al57

    Cyborg is the Woman’s MMA champ and Rousey knows this.

  • al57

    Rousey’s chest looks like two sunny side up fried eggs.

  • jeremy

    Stop with the cyborg crap, cyborg is the one who asked for her releases from the UFC and left and in doing so made sure she wouldnt have to fight Ronda. And i cant stand Ronda’s foul st weird how she goes so far and out of her way to insult Tate. I hope Tate kicks her ass in brutal fashion. Plus Tate is hot as hell and ronda isnt at all. who want to have babies with that bitch lol.. War Tate :)

    • Guest

      He’s angry because he can’t get laid so he just continues to bad mouth females in general from the sounds of it.

  • BobGyro

    Cyborg destroys this fake Rousey.

  • BobGyro

    Rhonda should steal Brian Carogay away from Big Nose tate

  • BobGyro

    Dana has to let Cyborg and Rousey meet up before Rousey takes off full time for Hollywood and a B movie career or a Jenna Jameson Porn career.

  • BobGyro

    That huge mole is Rhonda’s baby

  • BobGyro

    Cyborg does a KO beatdown and Hysterectomy on Rousey ending the kid talk. Cyborg punches the ovaries right out of Rousey.

  • BobGyro

    Cyborg punches Rousey’s ovaries out of her.
