And it seems like the first ever female UFC Champion will embark on a different adventure as two people close to her told USA TODAY that she's finalising a switch to WWE. The site reports that while details are being finished up, the source wanted to remain anonymous because the deal has not been made public as of this writing.
If Rousey finalizes her deal with WWE in the near future, it would make sense for a fight between her and Flair to take place at Wrestlemania 34 in New Orleans on April 8.
Ronda Rousey's Ultimate Fighting Championship career effectively ended past year, when she was beaten by Amanda Nunes inside 48 seconds. "There have been rumours about the UFC star making the transition to the squared circle, and appearances like the one she had in September, when she got into a stare down with Charlotte Flair and challenged her, saying, 'You name the time, you name the place, ' have fanned the flames about a possible move". "I don't want it to have to happen". She has got money ... and all that stuff. Just instead of the octagon, she'll compete in the ring. "I don't want to see it happen". But a channel like FS1 could look at WWE as acceptable replacement programming in case it loses UFC rights.

He felt those artists" contributions had not been "recognized as a key aspect of the story of art at the time. Alongside her artistic practice Himid has curated exhibitions to showcase underrepresented Black artists.
Rousey, who hasn't had an MMA fight since December 2016, has offered indications that she was interested in the WWE.
Overall, if this move comes to fruition, it's not so much a direct loss for the UFC given the likelihood Rousey wasn't returning to the cage for them.
Along with television hosting jobs and movie role, the WWE move seems to be a better fit for Rousey at this time in her life.
