The internet is buzzing with speculation that UFC superstar might retire and never fight again.

The speculation stems from Rousey posting a photo of herself training her younger sister. The former champion captioned the photo, “Training sister #rondarousey #girl #inspiration #instagood #girlpower #instadaily #judo #like4like #jiujitsu #bjj #boxing #photooftheday #girlswholift #healthy #mma #gym #motivation #beautiful #inspire #wwe #instamood #fitspo #photography #photo #love #fighti.”(SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of Ronda Rousey On The Internet)

“She looks focused on helping her sister become a high-caliber fighter like her in the future. Most followers even asked Rousey if she has time to set up a training camp for their children,” they wrote.

Rousey has made millions in fighting purses and she has made tons of money in endorsements. The reality of the situation is that the she can walk away from fighting without losing much. However, fans obviously want to see her back in the octagon very soon.
