Dana White Confirms Ronda Rousey Is The Biggest UFC Star Ever

Ronda Rousey

Where is Ronda Rousey? We’ll folks it’s obvious she is running after her movie career in Hollywood while she still can. At the moment, MMA seems to be just an afterthought for the former bantamweight champion.

However, rumor is she expected to possibly return at the end of year. Perhaps, the December fight card against Amanda Nunes? Nobody knows for sure when, not even UFC President Dana White. But we do know White is actively trying to get his “biggest star” back inside the Octagon. That’s right! White believes Rousey is still the biggest star in his company’s history.

During an interview with Hot 97 White said,

By far. Not even close, by far the biggest star ever.

He also added,

Ronda Rousey is such a big star that when you go down to Brazil – I don’t know if you guys have watched any of the fights we do from Brazil — they don’t care who you are. They want the Brazilian to whoop your ass. When Ronda went down there, they cheered for Ronda over the Brazilian. Never seen that before in my life and will probably never see it again. That’s how big Ronda Rousey is.

According to multiple MMA sources, Rousey is currently back and training for a bantamweight title shot. When she does come back to fight, she’ll have to do quite a lot of media stir to beat the pay-per-view buy rate of UFC 205, which is headlined by Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez.

Do you agree with White, is Rousey still the biggest UFC star?
