Don’t place any bets on Ronda Rousey returning in November on the Madison Square Garden fight card, the first ever event in New York. You will definitely lose your money because UFC President Dana White just confirmed that the former champion had a minor knee surgery and her timeline for a return is being pushed back.
On Thursday, White told ESPN’s Cari Champion the following:
, I don’t know, I’m hoping we’re going to get Ronda back this year. She actually just had surgery yesterday on her knee. Nothing serious, just get in there, scope it and clean it out a little bit. She feels great. Her spirits are great. She’s been training.
So this means November is out of the question for Rousey, but a return inside the Octagon at the very end of the year, or early 2017 is looking promising.
If she fights, I’m hoping she fights in December. If not, then he would probably fight at the New Years show at the beginning of the year.
When Rousey’s back, she will definitely be fighting for the belt. So if Miesha Tate is still holding the women’s bantamweight title, then expect the trilogy to go down once and for all.
