Ronda Rousey Pushed By Dana White To Schedule Next Fight For December

Ronda Rousey is enjoying a much slowed-down life after losing her title. She is definitely on a much healing path in her life, after losing to Holly Holm and undergoing a knee surgery last week. Not only is she cutting back on training, she also has been indulging herself in activities she didn’t have time for when she was courted by the media.

“She had knee surgery one week ago,” reports Daily Mail. “And Ronda Rousey was indulging in some retail therapy as she was spotted in Santa Monica, California, this Wednesday. The 29-year-old mixed martial artist looked remarkably relaxed and happy as she checked out some clothing stores.”

Ronda Rousey may have realized that the best part about being wealthy and successful is having the time to spend her hard-earned money on things that make her happy instead of always concentrating on her next fight.

She also has been slow in uploading any significant pictures on her Instagram, opting to post screen captures of her favorite songs instead of showing images of herself training for her next fight.

However, there are plenty of people around her who are pressuring her to recapture her old glory.

“I’m hoping we’re going to get Ronda back this year,” Dana White said to ESPN. “She just had surgery yesterday on her knee — nothing serious, just get in there and scope it, clean it out a little bit.

“She feels great. Her spirits are great. She’s been training. If she fights, I’m hoping she fights December. If not, she would probably fight at the New Year’s show at beginning of [next] year,” he added.

Ronda has not responded to his public comments, but it looks like she is much more focused on not just healing her knee, but her mental state after suffering a career-defining loss.

“If Miesha Tate is the champion, [Rousey] will fight Miesha Tate,” Dana White continued. “Whoever has the belt is who Ronda Rousey will fight. “You never know. Injuries happen in this sport. A fight is made and somebody falls out, somebody else slides in. I’m not even saying Holly Holm can’t be champion by the time Ronda comes back.”

Miesha Tate, who has been uploading many more photos of herself training and enjoying life as the MMA champion, has a lot of opinions on how Ronda is doing.

I think Ronda is somewhat emotionally unstable,” Miesha said according to Maxim. “And I think that’s been characteristic for a long time […] Doesn’t mean [Rousey] fights any worse for it. I’m not knocking her as an athlete but emotionally she’s just got some things that are a little bit strange and I think that that was one of them.”

Judging by her Instagram, the current reigning MMA champion is in a much better state of mind, staying positive as she goes through grueling training to stay on top. Good thing she has a cute puppy to keep her spirits up.

Whenever she can, Miesha showcases her belt, making sure that the world knows that Ronda Rousey is no longer number one in the world.

There might be some truth in Miesha’s psycho analysis of Ronda Rousey. After being named one of the Time 100 Influential People, Ronda revealed a very vulnerable side of her.

I’m still grieving the person that could have won it all. But I have to live up to the fact that I’m not her, that’s just who I’d like to be, and instead I’m what I need to be, for myself and everyone else,” Ronda said to Time.

Others have also noted this growing insecurity in the former champion.

“Holly Holm didn’t just take Ronda Rousey’s UFC bantamweight title last year,” reports Washington Post. “She took the previously undefeated fighter’s sense of invincibility, and Rousey is clearly struggling to come to terms with not being the near-superhero that many people — including herself — saw her as.”

Do you think Dana White pressuring Ronda to complete in half a year is a good idea? Do you think she will be able to win back her title? Let me know in the comments below!
