The 35-year-old was the talk of the town after her string of impressive performances. The promoters thought it would be wise if she were to headline UFC 176 in the coming month.

They made the UFC commentator, Joe Rogan, ask her in front of the entire audience if she was willing to take the offer.

“The main event for August 2 fell out. It was supposed to be a contest between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes. The truck just asked me to ask you if you wanna fight on August 2?”

Dana White was furious and embarrassed

Since, the original main event between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes fell through, due to injury issues. They put Rousey on the spot, but she had to go through recovery and wouldn’t make it.
