UFC president Dana White believes that Ronda Rousey’s fighting days are over.

White spoke on the subject to the MMA site and addressed Rousey’s future when asked about fellow UFC fighter Nick Diaz’s future.

“I highly doubt it. I don’t know. I honestly don’t think that, and I can’t speak for him, you’d have to speak with Nick himself, but if you ask me – people ask me, ‘Do you think Ronda [Rousey] is coming back?’ No. I think Ronda’s going to retire. Ronda hasn’t retired, but my opinion is, I think she will. I don’t think Nick Diaz will ever fight again. I just don’t think he has the desire anymore,” White responded when asked about Rousey. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

Rousey was at one point the biggest star in the sport of fighting, but after shocking back-to-back losses she hasn’t fought again, and it looks like White is correct.

She made plenty of money and being punched in the head eventually takes a toll on the human body. Perhaps retiring is the best option for the once electric fighter.
