Since then, the doors for possible interaction between the two companies are wide open. Although neither side has grabbed the opportunity until now, people are already speculating upon the possibilities. WWE and UFC stars have switched between the two companies over time and the trend may keep on going now more than ever.

In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Jon Anik appeared. The commentator shed light on his thoughts about Rousey’s possible return to the UFC. This topic came into existence because of fans speculating the same after the UFC-WWE merger. Although there are no official statements regarding Rousey’s future in the UFC, Anik cleared out what his take is on the topic. Just like how UFC’s Henry Cejudo is coming out of retirement to take on the Bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling.

I didn’t like that Henry Cejudo came back and cut the line of a bunch of 35ers that have been active,” said Anik about Rousey’s possible return while referencing Cejudo’s situation. Earlier, he also clearly laid down his views about the situation, “That’s not gonna set well with me nor the athletes that have been donating blood, sweat, and tears to mixed martial arts over the last several years.

Now, after serving so many years as a wrestler, we could still see Rousey’s fate changing soon. Even the UFC commentator believes so.

Ronda Rousey’s professional background

Rousey started her combat sports career by representing the United States at the Olympics. She became the first-ever American to win an Olympic medal in women’s Judo.

The Rowdy One was not done there and joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2012. The martial artist soon became a top female martial artist in the company. Almost 4 years later, in 2016, Rousey decided to call it quits with an MMA score of 12-2. Although she was pretty much undefeated, her last two losses saw the end of her MMA career. In an interview, she once revealed that the true reason behind it was the audience’s expectations.

The former champion did not want to carry on just for the sake of others. So, fans saw her leave the promotion. Two years later, Rousey made her WWE debut in 2018 at WrestleMania 34. She quickly became one of the more popular female wrestlers in the company.
