Ronda Rousey hasn’t competed since she was brutally knocked out by Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 193 last November from Melbourne, Australia. Despite remaining relatively quiet within the media, it was expected that she’d eventually make her return and November 12’s UFC 205 from New York was tossed around as a possible landing spot for the “Rowdy” one’s comeback. While Rousey herself has never commented on this possibility, longtime rival and Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino put the breaks on this idea when she tweeted out that she heard Rousey was pregnant.
Check out the Brazilian’s statement below:

This rumor appears to be untrue, however, at least according to UFC President Dana White who recently told TMZ that Rousey isn’t pregnant at this time. Rousey has touched on having children with her partner and UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, but she confirmed with White that it just isn’t the case right now.
Despite denying the rumors, Rousey hadn’t said much regarding when she’ll make her highly anticipated return.
