Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor could end up being on the same fight card. As reported by Fox Sports, the UFC is thinking about having an event at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. The fight card, if it does feature both Rousey and McGregor, then it could end up being the biggest show that the UFC has ever had.
If Rousey and McGregor are both on the card that night, then they will be fighting in the same stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play. The stadium is massive, and with a card that could possibly feature both Rousey and McGregor, it could be a packed house. The stadium can seat more than 100,000 people.
As for when this will take place, it could be on December 5, and Rousey would be facing Miesha Tate. Tate recently won a fight that cemented her shot at Rousey, who holds the UFC Bantamweight title. The upcoming fight will mark the third time that Rousey has faced Tate, who was defeated by Rousey in their previous two fights.
According to Bleacher Report, UFC President Dana White was asked if Rousey-Tate could end up joining McGregor on a fight card, and he smirked. He proceeded to say that it was a possibility.
McGregor won the interim Featherweight title after he defeated Chad Mendes a few weeks ago. McGregor is expected to face Jose Aldo, who held the UFC Featherweight title before he suffered an injured rib, which led to Aldo being pulled out of the fight he was supposed to have with McGregor at UFC 189.
As for Rousey, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, she ended up knocking out Bethe Correia in under 40 seconds on Saturday night at UFC 190. It took Rousey 34 seconds to defeat Correia. Rousey dedicated her match to Roddy Piper, a WWE legend who passed away on July 31. It makes sense that Rousey wanted to pay homage to Piper, as she asked him if it was all right for her to use the name “Rowdy,” which is what Piper was known as during his time in the WWE.
Both Rousey and McGregor have impressive MMA records. Ronda Rousey boasts a record of 12 wins and no losses. McGregor has a record of 18-2, but he hasn’t lost a fight since 2010, and he remains unbeaten in the UFC. Correia did have a spotless record of 9-0, but Rousey handed her the first loss of her MMA career.
