An update on the ongoing saga of Ronda Rousey's eventual UFC return arrived this morning in the form of a few tweets from MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani.
That's the most positive report we've heard since Holly Holm ended Rousey's run as UFC women's bantamweight champ last November. But it's still painfully vague.
People are hungry for Rousey's return. She lorded over this division for years and it's gone topsy turvy since she lost the belt. After Holm took it off her, Meisha Tate snatched it from Holm and then Amanda Nunes took it for her own. Now the hard-hitting Brazilian wants to take her shot at Rousey to prove she's the best.
But there are still some who don't think that will ever happen, because they don't think Rousey will ever get into the cage again. And why would she? She's making money outside the Octagon and not risking her ability to eat apples. The biggest scare she gets these days is when she cramps up after sitting in an uncomfortable position while modeling jeans.
That brings us to her latest campaign for blue jean brand Buffalo David Bitton, which raise an interesting question: If this is the kind of thing Rousey's going to be doing when she's not fighting, do we really want her to get back into the cage?
