Ronda Rousey to be inducted into International Sports Hall of Fame

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, can add yet another accolade to her illustrious combat sports career, which already boasts a mixed martial arts (MMA) world title, as well as a bronze medal in Olympic Judo.

The International Sports Hall of Fame, class of 2018.

The ceremony takes place March 3, 2018, as part of the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio, a 501(c) Non Profit Foundation “established to honor the world’s greatest athlete legends in all sports.”

Joining “Rowdy” at this year’s induction ceremony is WWE wrestler and movie star David Bautista, former UFC champion Bas Rutten, New Zealand television personality Phil Keoghan, and Dr. Terry and Jan Todd, who did a bunch of stuff that I’m sure was important.

Rousey has not competed inside the Octagon since her technical knockout loss to Amanda Nunes in late 2016. In addition to her various movie projects, “Rowdy” is expected to make her WWE debut later this year.

Holly Holm Recognizes Similar Feel to ‘Cyborg’ Bout, Upset of Ronda Rousey at UFC 193

Holly Holm may never be able to top her monumental upset of Ronda Rousey when it comes to shock value, but comfort in the underdog role could be beneficial for “The Preacher’s Daughter” as she prepares for a different kind of challenge at UFC 219.

Ronda Rousey ‘Why We Fight’ video: ‘It’s like eating and sleeping’

If you can’t see the embedded video click here.

Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey calls fighting “an innately human thing, like eating and sleeping,” which I guess makes sense, since you can eat a knee to the face and go to sleep.

The question of Why We Fight is the driving force behind her new eight-part web series starring Golden Gloves champion Zac “Kid Yakima” Wohlman, who travels the world trying to solve the motivational riddle of unarmed combat.

“There is no one answer to why we fight,” Rousey — who will executive produce Verizon’s Go90 series — told People.com. “My motivations are very different than anyone else’s and I think that’s why this series is so fascinating.”

One question mixed martial arts (MMA) fans are still asking is why Rousey doesn’t fight following consecutive losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes. While “Rowdy” has yet to officially retire, she’s expected to make her pro wrestling return at some point in 2018.

Until then, this is the closest we’ll get to seeing her involved with fighting.

Report: Ronda Rousey begins WWE training for potential pro wrestling career

Remember that “major news” we were expecting?

Perhaps former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is going to make good on her lifelong dream of becoming a professional wrestler for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

That’s according recent reports in the wake of Rousey’s appearance at last month’s Mae Young Classic, an elimination-style tournament designed to showcase up-and-coming talent like “Four Horsewomen” stablemate and former UFC bantamweight Shayna Baszler.

From Fightful.com:

According to sources, WWE had referred Rousey and company to current superstar Brian Kendrick for training purposes in Southern California. There was also buzz backstage at the tournament — mainly among WWE employees and contractors — that Rousey’s training would start soon. She’s taken some basic bumps among other things thus far.

She’s not, however, an everyday player.

“Rowdy” — who got her nickname from the late “Rowdy” Roddy Piper — is never coming back to UFC, according to this guy, which means the Olympian will have time to get married and have babies, depending on her pro wrestling timetable.

That would be a shame, considering Rousey is still in her fighting prime, though it seems “easy” knockout losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes were enough to send her packing for the foreseeable future.

Alongside this former champion and longtime rival.

Bob Arum: Boxing owes a debt to UFC for making Ronda Rousey a star

Fossilized fight promoter Bob Arum usually has nothing kind to say about Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), unless of course he gets bribed — by a lot — at goodwill auctions and has no choice.

That’s why it came as a surprise to hear bigot Bob heap praise on the world’s largest mixed martial art (MMA) organization, which is responsible for turning Olympic bronze medalist Ronda Rousey into a mainstream star.

“I really want to acknowledge the debt that we owe to UFC because they took this Ronda Rousey and they made her into a tremendous star,” Arum told MMA Fighting. “She ended up becoming the biggest pay-per-view star that they had and if they could do it with Ronda Rousey, we believe we can do it with Mikaela (Meyer).”

Arum is pushing female phenom Mikaela Meyer, who makes her pro debut after representing Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics. That happens this Saturday night (Aug. 5, 2017) on the undercard of the Lomachenko-Marriaga WBO super featherweight title fight.

But will Meyer be to boxing what Rousey was to MMA?

Time will tell.
