Ronda Rousey is making some new and interesting moves.
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has officially made the transition into pro-wrestling. She signed a full-time WWE contract earlier this year.
Rousey lost her belt via viscious knockout against Holly Holm, and attempted a comeback in 2016, which resulted in another loss via viscious knockout to current Women’s Featherweight champion Amanda Nunes.
Rousey recently appeared on a talk show with Ellen DeGeneres and dismissed any return to the UFC:
“I think it’s just as likely as me going back to another Olympics for judo. No one demanded a written resignation from me for judo and I don’t really think the same thing is necessary for fighting. I’m just doing what I enjoy and WWE is what I enjoy right now.”
UFC President Dana White has also said he only see’s a future for Rousey in pro wrestling. However, it appears that Rousey has started her own fighter management company called One Fight Management.
Promotional company Golden Boy Boxing announced the signing of Ferdinand Kerobyan on Twitter, advertising the boxer as the first fighter under Rousey’s management.
Rousey made her own post about Kerobyan on Thursday. He is a 20-year-old boxer from Armenia, who currently trains out of California. Rousey has a long and storied relationship with the Armenian community in the Los Angeles area, dating back to her judo days. However, the most notorious Armenian she is associated with was longtime coach Edmund Tarverdyan, whom many people, including Ronda’s mother, believe to be one of the worst MMA trainers of all time.
You can see Rousey next at WrestleMania 34 on April 8th in New Orleans, Louisiana.
