Ronda Rousey Is Reportedly About To Finalise A Deal With The WWE

The MMA legend's UFC career effectively ended a year ago after losing to Amanda Nunes in just 48 seconds. Just instead of the octagon, she'll compete in the ring.

At that time, Rousey staged an "altercation" with WWE superstars Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Bayley while standing alongside her real life friends Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir.

USA Today reports that "two people close" to Rousey asserted that the Olympic bronze medalist is finalising a deal to jump across to Vince McMahon's pro-graps megalith, which would quite obviously carry a hefty price-tag with it given Rousey's star appeal.

Valve said the recent dips and spikes in Bitcoin were signs that the "degree of volatility has become extreme". Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that recently spiked in value, with one Bitcoin being valued at about $10,000 .

Speculation ran wild about Rousey's eventual move to WWE after that incident but until now there's been no solid information that she was actually considering a career in professional wrestling.

That will nearly certainly stand as Rousey's final MMA fight, as even UFC President Dana White has said he doesn't expect her back in the octagon.

IF Rousey signs with WWE prior to WrestleMania 34, a more likely match would involve her and the Four Horsewomen. I care about her, and she's got enough money. "I wouldn't want it to happen", White said. The UFC's first female fighter, Rousey began her MMA career 12-0, usually dispatching her foes shortly into the first round, and won acclaim for her skills, looks and charisma.

Its machine learning algorithms have helped remove more than 150,000 videos from YouTube since June that depict violent extremism. But there's more work to be done yet, and so YouTube plans to grow its moderation team to 10,000 employees next year.

"I wouldn't want to see it", White told MMAjunkie. "I don't want to see it happen".

Rousey issued a challenge to Flair: "You name the time, you name the place". The value of WWE rights isn't generally about one performer, and there are questions about how Rousey will be received by a wrestling audience, but she certainly would seem to have at least the potential of bringing in some new fans. She has appeared in several movies such as "Entourage", "Furious 7" and "The Expendables 3". By the time Rousey lost to Nunes she was coming up against an athlete who devoted her entire existence to excelling at MMA, and it showed.

Despite Rousey losing her last two UFC fights, she is still one of the most iconic fighters in the world and would be a big draw for WWE.
